Akamai’s global customer base can now leverage Bitmovin’s transcoding, which includes containerized encoding on-premise and in the cloud.
Bitmovin said it has officially been qualified as a video transcoding partner by Akamai Technologies, a CDN and edge-processing platform, to enable secure digital content delivery to all consumer platforms. Akamai has worked closely with Bitmovin since Bitmovin ended its Media Services on Demand (MSOD) transcoding service two years ago.
Akamai’s global customer base can now leverage Bitmovin’s containerized encoding on-premise and in the cloud transcoding solution, which is now fully integrated with Akamai NetStorage and Media Delivery products.
“Streaming TV providers, content creators and publishers using Akamai now have access to Bitmovin’s next-generation encoding capabilities,” said Jon Alexander, Senior Director, Media Product Management at Akamai. “We’re helping joint customers take advantage of the scale and capacity of the Akamai Edge and deliver high-quality video optimized for delivery across multiple networks and to any device.”
Akamai’s global users now have access to Bitmovin’s cloud-based encoding capabilities as part of their usual video workflow. Bitmovin Video Encoding offers per-title, per-scene and three-pass features that automatically select the best encoding options according to the complexity of each piece of content, adjusting bitrate requirements to optimize the delivery of each individual asset. This reduces bandwidth consumption by applying the minimum bitrate required to maintain perfect visual quality.
Akamai customers will also be able to use multiple codecs, including next generation options such as AV1 and VVC, to ensure the best possible consumer experience across multiple devices. Full support for ad insertion, plus a wide range of digital rights management (DRM) solutions, means using Bitmovin represents a complete end-to-end encoding solution.
