CONTENT-AWARE VIDEO-CODEC TUNING

Reduce video streaming&storage costs by 20% in averageafter changing 1 line of encoding pipeline

What we do?

Feature

We analyse video codecs and find best encoding settings for given videos. Our settings improve encoding performance: faster encoding, less bitrate or better objective quality

Video-codec tuning is a process of codec optimisation for particular tasks, such as compression of specific videos (CCTV, interviews, CGI etc.) or working at given speed limits by variating encoding settings

The challenge of video-codec tuning

x264 options

Standard encoding presets are usually tuned by the developers to work efficiently in average for all variety of encoding cases. Adjusting your codec for content it works with allows to utilize unused reserves of video codec and boost its performance

Is it simple to find good encoding settings?

Let's consider an example: tune x264 for one 20-seconds video

  • x264 has ~50 encoding settings
  • Different combinations of settings influence encoding performance unpredictably
  • Exhaustive search for optimal settings will last 22,000,000,000,000 centuries (~488,000 Earth ages!)

Our algorithms can tune any video codec for your videos
in just a few days

Reduce video streaming, storage and compression costs by 15% in average

EVT gain on x264

Codec tuning allows to decrease video size and encoding bandwith:

  • up to 40% less
 bitrate with the same
 encoding time and video 
quality
  • up to 10 times faster
 with the same bitrate 
and encoded video 
quality

For example, our settings for x264 encoder optimized for a set of 77 different videos produces 15% less bitrate than standard presets and 8% less than developers' presets which were tuned by the developers specially for worldwide comparisons

Advantages of our approach

Validated on videos

Works with all video encoding use cases

All kinds of videos: CCTV, Ads, Movies, Self-driving, Aero, etc. Any use cases: online streaming, universal or ultra-high-quality encoding. Validated on 20000+ real videos

Supported codecs

Any video-codec or cloud encoding service

Our technology is codec-independent, it works with codec mathematical model and requires only the access to encoding options, which meaning may be hidden

Supported metrics

Keeps video quality and can make it better

With our technology video file size decreases without quality loss. Our optimization algorithms work with any target quality, bitrate and encoding speed
