Video: Netflix – Delivering better video encodes for legacy devices – The Broadcast Knowledge

With over 139 million paying customers, Netflix is very much in the bandwidth optimisation game. It keeps their costs down, it keeps customers’ costs down for those on metered tariffs and lower bitrate keeps the service more responsive.

As we’ve seen on The Broadcast Knowledge over the years, Netflix has tried hard to find new ways to encode video with Per-Title encodingVMAF and, more recently, per-shot encoding as well as moving to more efficient codecs such as AC1.
