It is called transcode to direct conversion (digital to digital) from one codec to another. It can be with or without quality loss, depending on the codec used. This involves decoding / decompressing the original data to an intermediate raw format (RAW data in photography) (for example, PCM for audio or YUV for video), so that it mimics it, and then recoding it to reach the desired codec.
Advanced H.264 / AAC transcoder
Good encoding has a lot to do with the final display quality, which is why our transcoding service uses the properly parameterized and optimized H.264 codec to obtain the best possible results. This, coupled with the AAC audio codec (which allows for twice the quality at roughly the same bitrate as an mp3 file), results in exceptional audio and display quality.
The encoding system has been designed with the large volumes of video content in mind, so it is managed by means of an unattended local queue, which encodes all the videos you add with the options that you choose in an unattended way. Since you can install the Phoenix Desktop Client on multiple machines without any problems, you can handle multiple parallel encoding queues to further speed up the encoding process.
Classify your content
The coding system allows you to specify the relevant information of your videos: title, description and tags. In addition, the system will allow you to obtain several captures of the video to specify them as a video image or establish it from an image file that you have in the system.
Video encoding options
The video encoding system is compatible with almost all existing formats and of course with all the most common ones. From the encoding window you will be able to choose the bitrates to encode your content to automatically stream dynamically, if you want to activate the fast encoding option for content that cannot wait or fix the problems of old anamorphic signals by forcing to 16: 9.
