Transcoding and Streaming Solutions

Transcoding 

Transcoding the process that converts a video file from one format to another to make media viewable across different platforms and devices.

Transmuxing involves changing the way that audio/video packets are organised, without changing the audio/video data itself 

Why transcoding ?

Transcoding of a video is typically performed for the below reasons:

  • Target device doesn’t support original format/data.
  • Size of input video cannot be handled due to size limitations on target device.
  • Convert obsolete formats to standard or modern formats.                         

Transcoding is a two-step process:

 Step 1: Convert input compressed data into uncompressed format

 Step 2: Re-encode uncompressed data into compressed format

Transmuxing

Transmuxing involves changing the way that audio/video packets are organised, without changing the audio/video data itself. We take compressed data and without changing the original content, repackage it into different format (e.g HLS stream into MPEG-TS containers, DASH into fMP4 containers).

The Codec War!

Rising consumption of more immersive video content across industries with higher resolutions and greater demand for quality has pressured the industry into innovating ever more efficient video compression techniques. Enter the next generation of codecs:

  • JEM (Joint Exploration Model)
  • XVC
  • VVC (Versatile Video Coding)
  • AV1

Due to the cost burden of distributing video content, often the quality of the compressed video has to be compromised to maintain a cost-efficient service and there distributors also find themselves compromising on video quality. This ultimately affects user experience and loses customers. Identifying a codec which could be deployed to improve quality and/or reduce costs is paramount to any modern business in the media & broadcasting industry. 

Our experts ensure that you choose the right codec for your business, improving your customers' experience and helping you stay ahead of the competition.

How do we help? 

Acuiti Labs transcoding solutions provide transcoding capability as well as supporting any unknown formats that cannot be converted using standard transcoders.

Why unknown formats:

Currently, in the market, there are thousands of formats developed by different CCTV manufacturers and other sources, these formats are mostly proprietary and cannot be viewed and decoded by standard players/decoders. Acuiti Labs make ingestion issues a thing of the past with unparalleled expertise in reverse-engineering proprietary codecs.

Streaming 

We are experts in Low- latency video streaming, that has become the minimum requirement to high quality streaming, specially for live streaming scenarios like - video chatting, sports streaming etc. Streaming is a technology used to deliver content to computers and mobile devices over the internet. Streaming transmits data — usually audio and video — as a continuous flow, which allows the recipients to begin to watch or listen almost immediately.

There are two ways to download content over the internet:

  • Progressive Download
  • Streaming

Streaming is the quickest way to access internet-based content, but it's not the only way. Progressive download is another option that was used for years before streaming was possible. The key differences between progressive download and streaming are when you can start using the content and what happens to the content after you're done with it.
