Webinar: Intro to QVBR: Quality-Defined Variable Bitrate Control

Date: April 26th 2018, 16:00 BST, 8am PDT

If the most important characteristic of encoded video is quality, a simple and certain way to achieve it is through Quality-Defined Variable Bitrate Control (QVBR) which is designed to deliver constant video quality and waste zero bits in the process.

Here’s a brief outline of QVBR’s many benefits:
• Generate consistent, high-quality video for a perfected media experience
• Maintain video quality with fewer bits, saving up to 50% on storage and delivery
• Easy, simple operation: Just set a fixed quality level and a max bitrate and the encoder does the rest
AVC and HEVC codec support

Join AWS Elemental for an in-depth, technical discussion of how QVBR works, its advantages, and its uses.
