Creating Encoding Presets

This page describes functionalities of presets that can be used in encoding VOD jobs and Live Channels.

VOD and Live Presets

Whilst the encoding parameters are largely the same for VOD and Live encoding, the platform stores separate presets for each type of job. VOD presets can only be used for VOD jobs and similarly Live presets are needed for live channels.

Preset Creation

Presets are made up of one or more profiles associated with a specific encoding type and the individual encoding parameters for each. The V-Nova platform also includes a selection of default presets which can be used to get started.
