Video Encoding and Transcoding

Upload your videos to Mirror Image storage and Publisher can automatically encode your Video On Demand (VOD) assets in a format that allows you to deliver them to any type of screen or device.

Publisher also has the ability to watermark videos on encode. This feature allows videos to keep the watermark visible on all devices and players. A Trimming Automation feature enables users to trim videos created from an original file upload.  Trimming can be selected from the beginning, end or both and then saved to an encoding group and applied automatically to new uploaded videos.  During video encoding, a new Multi Thumbnail Creation feature will automatically create multiple images from the video to use for players and other options.

Publisher’s  cloud-based transcoding feature gives you a superior way to create high quality, adaptive bitrate video streams.
