VOD Professional | How Quickly Can Live Content Be Made Available on-Demand? | Video in a connected world | Scoop.it
What are the challenges and cost implications? And is transcoding / encoding really as scarily technical as it sounds? Find out here in conversation with Arqiva and Brightcove.
Valery's insight:

Question that comes back VERY often and quite complete answer (for a first glance at least).

 

Working on this subject, I can add

- If your live content is already delivered for many devices, you can glue the chunk to make the content avalaible for start over and replay. It can be more or less instanteneous (say 5 minutes).

- you can also choose to transcode after it is finished. Then it will take quite a lot of time depending on how many servers you have and how many devices (resolution screens) you cover. With GPU (Graphical transcoding instead of CPU) you can have one hour transcoded in 45 minutes (or even 10 minutes if you work SD only).
