PCCW Global / Service Provider / Media / Transcoding
The evolution of smart mobile devices and significant improvement of mobile networks has enabled TV quality video to be consumed on multi-screens including mobile devices anywhere, anytime. It opens up a much wider market for service providers and content providers that have previously required dedicated set-top-boxes to deliver the same high quality video content.
Superior transcoding quality of live and file content at very low bitrate
Transcoding Service is a cloud-based live and file transcoding platform based on advanced compression algorithms that enable transcoding of video content with superior quality at a very low bitrate compared to other solutions on the market. This helps to build a differentiated OTT video service with a critical competitive advantage for
penetrating a wider addressable market.
Superior Transcoding Quality at Very Low Bitrate
The advanced compression algorithm of the Transcoding Service sets us apart from most of the other transcoding solutions by providing around 30% savings in bitrate at the same or even better transcoding quality. This translates to better video quality under limited network bandwidth or higher video quality with the same network bandwidth. It is one of the critical competitive advantages that helps improve the overall user experience and broaden the addressable market for media services.
Complete Transcoding Service
Transcoding Service provides a single cloud-based platform for transcoding linear channels, live events and file-based content. It is integrated with the Global Media Transport that delivers the high quality live content to traditionally distribution channels while allowing the live content to be transcoded into a superior quality low bitrate version for viewing on multi-screens.
Scalable and High Performance
Transcoding Service is built on a highly scalable cloud-based platform that can scale to meet fluctuations in transcoding demand. You can pay as you go without the need to invest upfront in expensive transcoding infrastructure. The advanced transcoding algorithm can handle live transcoding in real time and 2-pass file transcoding at 1.3 x real time, reducing the time required to have content ready for service.
Better User Experience. Wider Addressable Market
Apart from saving network bandwidth and storage cost, the significant saving of bitrate provided by Transcoding Service also provides a better user experience and extends the reach of the service to areas with limited network bandwidth.
Cloud-based Platform. Pay-as-you-go
Transcoding Service is based on a simple-to-use cloud-based platform delivered on a pay-as-you-go model and allowing you to scale easily to meet your transcoding demand. This provides you with the flexibility to extend your content library any time to support the growth of your digital video services.
