As with most new technologies, ABR streaming is a double-edged sword. Its beneﬁts to end-users are obvious, but it brings with it some signiﬁcant challenges for content owners and others who prepare media for distribution. Unless addressed carefully, those challenges can easily push content preparation infrastructure past its sweet spot, introducing inefﬁciencies that steeply increase labour requirements and processing time.
This white paper provides an overview of how ABR ﬁles differ from conventional streaming ﬁles, the implications of those differences for conventional media preparation processes, and how those processes may be successfully adapted to create highly-efﬁcient, cost-effective ABR workﬂows.
