Video Transcoding and Processing
Our system is built to support any transcoding workflow you define. Just upload the content and we’ll transcode it into multiple flavors, and deliver it with adaptive bitrate technology, for the best viewing experience on any device. You can also control the entire process yourself by using your own transcoder.
Our cloud-based transcoding quickly converts any type of uploaded video into a variety of flavors (optimized output files), so that your viewers get the best quality video on any device. Using our enterprise-class transcoding cloud rids you of the expense and hassle of maintaining your own transcoding hardware.
Multi Bitrate, Multi Format
Our system automatically detects the viewer’s connection speed and device capabilities and delivers the optimal video flavor. In the case of changing network conditions, Kaltura will adapt mid-stream to deliver uninterrupted playback.
Transcoding Decision Engine
Our transcoding decision engine provides you with optimal video quality while maintaining minimal storage costs. The engine analyzes each source file, and determines the optimal output files required for high-quality delivery to any device.
Use the Transcoder of Your Choice
You can use your own transcoder, or a third party transcoding service, with either Kaltura On-Prem or Hosted (SaaS) Edition. Hosted Platform (SaaS) customers can upload the transcoded content to Kaltura, or stream from their own network/third-party CDN, and simply use Kaltura to manage the metadata and settings.
Scale, crop and rotate images and even grab images from your favorite frame in a video. Get fancy with our developer tools and API, or manage and manipulate your images with the Management Console.
Stay protected with automatic malware scanning for ingested files of any type.
