Video processing implications when working with CMAF, multiple HDR specs and next-gen audio

Share on

While CMAF is an important attempt to converge streaming formats, there are still differences in how MPEG-DASH and Apple handle captioning and encryption, placing emphasis on JIT packaging so you can still use a single encode. Here, Mike Callahan, Senior Director, Solutions Marketing at AWS Elemental, explains some other important industry developments and how they impact workflows, like the emergence of multiple HDR specifications and how software-based video processing makes it possible to switch between formats and adopt new ones as they become popular, and the additional metadata requirements of next-generation audio. He also notes how HEVC compression is being applied to HD and SD, as well as UHD, and explains a potentially game-changing cloud-based image recognition solution that makes it easier to find content.
