ENCODING. INTELLIGENT. OPTIMIZED.
Haivision Lightflow Encode uses deep learning and artificial intelligence to determine the optimal bitrate ladder and encoding configuration for every individual video. This results in significant bitrate reductions and perceptual quality improvements, ensuring that you realize an optimized cost-quality value.
Per title and per scene smart video analysis for optimized quality-to-bitrate encoding
ULTRA-FAST AI ENCODING
Parallel processing option for encoding up to 5x real-time video
SUPPORT FOR 4K
Flexible multi-codec and 4K support for savings up to 45%
PACKAGING AND DRM
Optional packaging and DRM for protected delivery of HLS, MPEG-DASH and more
Trained over millions of hours with diverse content to determine optimal and specific video encoding parameters for each video asset or live feed, Lightflow Encode can be configured to maximize customer-defined business KPIs, including visual quality, cost saving and fast time-to-market.
INTELLIGENT VIDEO ENCODING
Lightflow Encode uses proprietary machine learning to make smart analysis of video content (per title or per scene), giving the best quality-to-bitrate performance. Lightflow Encode leverages LQI, a video quality metric which represents how good the human visual system perceives video content at different bitrates and resolutions. With LQI, Lightflow Encode enhances the viewing experience and increases user engagement, while reducing your transcoding and CDN (delivery and storage) costs.
IMPROVING WORKFLOW SPEED
Lightflow Encode includes a module for parallel video processing. When time to market is key, using the ultra-fast encoder option allows you to analyze and transcode every video faster than the length of the video itself.
EFFICIENT 4K ENCODING
Video in 4K requires 4 times more information – and cost– than HD video. The Lightflow Encode’s AI technology has been trained with 4K content to produce bitrate ladders up to UHD (2160p) and selects the appropriate codec (H.264, H.265 and VP9) for each asset and for each device to optimize bitrate and deliverability. Each video is unique, with its own signature of motion, color, level of detail and variation of the them all LightFlow 4K Engine analyzes video assets and applies individual encoding optimization for each one.
PACKAGING FOR MULTISCREEN DELIVERY
Lightflow Encode provides an optional integration toolset that facilitates distribution of encoded content to multiscreen video services. Supporting HLS, MPEG-DASH or Microsoft Smooth Streaming, Lightflow Encode ensures not only encoding optimization, but also the packaging to deliver high-value content to your worldwide audiences.
