Encoding for Multiple Screen Delivery
What you'll learn
- Encode videos for delivery to desktop, notebook, mobile and OTT devices.
- Choose the optimal adaptive streaming technology for their delivery needs.
- Configure all relevant H.264 encoding parameters for top video quality at the lowest possible bitrates.
- Decide how and when DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP) should fit into their development plans.
- A free PDF copy of the 5-star rated book, Producing Streaming Video for Multiple Screen Delivery
- You should understand concepts like resolution, data rate, frame rate and other compression baslcs
- You should be familiar with encoding interfaces and related terms and terminology
- You should have already encoded many video files and be familiar, at least in concept, with the benefits of distributing via HTML5
You will learn how to create a set of video files that will play on all devices, from smartphones to computers and OTT devices. The class starts by exploring key concepts like protocol and container formats and technologies like HTTP Live streaming, DASH, and dynamic streaming. Then it moves to a technical overview of the H.264 specification to identify those configuration parameters that impact quality and those that don't, and how they affect playback compatibility. Then you'll learn the technical requirements for single and multiple file delivery to Flash, HTML5, iOS, Android, and the Apple TV, Roku, and other OTT devices. You'll learn the technical requirements for delivering to all key platforms and an understanding how to do so.
Who this course is for:
- This course is for professional web producers seeking to efficiently produce the highest possible quality H.264 encoded video for the broadest possible distribution.
- This course is an intermediate to advanced level course best taken by those who already know how to encode video files and are looking to enhance their knowledge and skillset.
