When video consumers watch TV, viewing can happen on hundreds of different devices, and on connections that range from fiber to 3G, forcing streaming video producers to support multiple adaptive streaming technologies.

Cost-effective support means shrinking video encoding, packaging, storage, and delivery costs to the minimum. High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) and the Common Media Application Format (CMAF) do just that.

This e-book explains HEVC and CMAF, and ways to incorporate them into your video encoding and distribution pipelines and retain the broadest possible compatibility with your customers. Topics covered:

  • Video codecs, containers, and protocol evolution
  • The challenges of existing video streaming formats
  • What CMAF does and doesn’t do (includes multiple workflow scenarios)
  • Typical CMAF workflows using AWS Elemental products for live and VOD files on-premises and in the cloud

The broadcasting and media industry is undergoing seismic changes, for reasons which are well rehearsed. Consumers demand the ability to view content at a time of their choosing, where they want to view it, and on the device which is convenient to them at that time. 

The ubiquity of broadband and 3G/4G/LTE mobile connectivity makes this practical. It is now possible to deliver individual content streams for very large numbers of concurrent users. 

As this has become commonplace and mainstream, so the nature of the content has changed, and its source. Where once television came from broadcasters, now there is a huge community making its own community, creating YouTube and Twitch stars along the way. Traditional producers and broadcasters have to evolve to compete. 

Software-only platforms and pure IP infrastructures are the only way forward.

Read this white paper to gain insights on considerations shaping video networking investments and an evaluation of the options for enabling video networking and delivery in the enterprise.
