Video Encoding with Bitmovin and Scality
Scality’s partner Bitmovin provides a dedicated service, enabling live and on demand encoding of videos into adaptive bitrate formats such as MPEG-DASH and HLS in the cloud. This service comes with a comprehensive API that allows seamless integration into any video workflow.
Recently Bitmovin released a managed <a href=”https://bitmovin.com/containerized-video-encoding-will-change-video-landscape/”>on-premise encoding solution</a> on top of Kubernetes and Docker that works for VoD and Live and offers the same features as their cloud encoding service. Managed on-premises encoding offers the benefits of Software as a Service solution while utilizing your own infrastructure.
With the release of their managed on-premises encoding, Bitmovin also released support for Scality RING storage, allowing this storage solution to be used in the private cloud. In the <a href=”https://s3.scality.com/v1.0/page/video-encoding-with-bitmovin-and-scality”>following tutorial</a> we will describe how to setup a Scality S3 Server and use it together with the Bitmovin API to download input assets from, and upload the encoded content Scality S3 Server.
