Intro to QVBR: Quality-Defined Variable Bitrate Control

Originally Aired

Thursday April 26, 2018

If the most important characteristic of encoded video is quality, a simple and certain way to achieve it is through Quality-Defined Variable Bitrate Control (QVBR) which is designed to deliver constant video quality and waste zero bits in the process. AWS Elemental software includes QVBR with no additional license fees.

Here's a brief outline of QVBR's many benefits:

  • Generate consistent, high-quality video for a perfected media experience
  • Maintain video quality with fewer bits, saving up to 50% on storage and delivery
  • Easy, simple operation: Just set a fixed quality level and a max bitrate and the encoder does the rest
  • AVC and HEVC codec support
