Full HD (1080p) videos are ready to be published in 0.7 times the duration of the video.
Processing time is important, particularly if you have much or long content. Screen9 runs transcoding (the word we use for processing video from one format to another) on modern hardware using optimised software. Screen9 also employs a clever algorithm when encoding to multiple formats that prioritises required formats over optimisation formats which enables publishing of a video before all formats have completed processing. Additional formats (different quality levels in adaptive streaming) are completed in the background and made available for streaming as soon as they are ready.
The combination of modern hardware and clever scheduling allows Screen9 to make uploaded videos ready for publishing incredibly fast. To give you a feel for the speed, we have included three benchmarks below. The video we use for benchmarking is from the Big Buck Bunny project. The benchmark videos all have a duration of 9:57 minutes. Furthermore they represent three quality levels:
- 480p resolution encoded with 3.3 Mbps H.264 video and AAC audio
- 720p resolution encoded with 5.6 Mbps H.264 video and AAC audio
- 1080p resolution encoded with 9.7 Mbps H.264 video and AAC audio
