Best Practices For Managing Adaptive Bitrate Resolution And Encoding Profiles
Two weeks ago, during a StreamingMedia.com webinar I moderated on the topic of Adaptive Streaming & HTTP Delivery, Cisco gave out some great details on managing adaptive bitrate resolution and encoding profiles. While I've included three of their slides below, the first slide really gives a great visual on what the aspect ratio or size of the video window should be based on the encoding bitrate and bits per pixel.
You can download all of Cisco's slides from the webinar as well as the slides from all the other presenters here.
