Bitmovin will showcase its video streaming tech

Bitmovin has been a pioneer in almost every significant development in online video

At NAB Show 2018, Bitmovin will showcase its latest video streaming tech coming on booth #SU9901CM (Connected Media|IP). Bitmovin has been a pioneer in almost every significant development in online video, from building and deploying the world’s first commercial adaptive streaming (MPEG-DASH/HLS) HTML5 Player, to being the first to achieve 100x realtime encoding speeds in the cloud.


In April 2017, Bitmovin delivered the world’s first AV1 live stream. At the time this required over 200 processor cores to stream, but five months later at the IBC show in Amsterdam they delivered the same demonstration using just 32 cores. Since then Bitmovin have continued to improve their AV1 technology, and this development will only accelerate going ahead towards NAB 2018.


Here are several of the technologies that Bitmovin will bring to the NAB show floor this year:

  • Bitmovin Newest Player V8: Bitmovin want to demonstrate how the smallest video player on the market leads to performance improvement and feature modularity.
  • Next Generation Streaming Optimizations: Bitmovin continues its encoding technology innovations in Per-Title Encoding, Multi-Codec Streaming, Per-Scene Adaptation and the latest, AI-enabled 3-Pass Encoding.
  • Containerized Video Encoding: Bitmovin’s distributed video encoding can be deployed anywhere, on public cloud (AWS, GCS, etc.), private cloud (Scality, example2, etc.), or datacenters.
  • AV1 End-to-End Workflow: The next generation video codec in action – from source ingestion and cloud encoding to browser-based playout with Mozilla.
