Creating an Akamai Output Hublet Preset

The Akamai transcoding output Hublet enables you to create an Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) package for streaming multiple renditions of your content to the Akamai CDN. Producing multiple renditions of the stream helps ensure quality delivery that can be adapted as needed for a variety of devices and experiences while reducing bandwidth, storage, and delivery demands. Settings are often specific to the type of players or service delivery options you have chosen.

Use the Akamai Output Hublet to save bitrate/resolution configurations for up to 8 renditions that can be used across similar video assets in your catalog and for streamlining route creation. 

To create a preset using the Akamai Output Hublet:

  1. In the
    Admin Area, select Preset Creator
    towards the top of the screen.
  2. Click the New Preset button
    and select the preset you wish to create.
  3. Select Akamai Preset from the New Preset drop-down menu.

    Use a descriptive name for the Hublet so that your team recognizes it as the one to use for a particular asset or use case.
