25 Jan More power to your encodings
We are pleased to announce that we have increased our encoding power by 30%. Now encoding a 5-minute 1080p H.264 10 Mbps file to its multi-pass streaming proxy takes less than a minute, with an overall performance of 5,1x.
And guess what? The watermarking performance slipped from 6x to 17x. Almost three times faster. Fasten your seatbelt!
Please note that encoding performance depends on two main factors:
- The file size: the higher the data rate, the more data must be processed and the longer the encoding will take. It is clear that, with the same codec, a 4k file contains more information than a 1080p file.
- The source codec: the more complex the source file’s compression algorithm, the more complicated it is for the encoder to extract the relevant data and re-encode it.
Here’s an article from our Knowledge Base on how Mnemonica treats file encoding.
