What is transcoding?

Transcoding is a process that adapts an existing video stream by decoding stream content, modifying it to better suit one or more target audiences, then finally re-encoding it. Encoded Media’s transcoder connects to your LAN, ingests local streams and converts them to formats defined by the network administrator.

Our UHD Transcoders can also be stacked to increase transcoding capacity.

Features Overview

  • Change bandwidth. Reduce high bitrate UHD streams into lower bitrate streams to reduce network usage
