Reference Bitrate Ladder

Under the Reference Bitrate Ladder tab, you can specify a set of renditions (bitrate + resolution) for SD/HD and 4K inputs, which can then be used to compare against the quality that you get with the renditions that LightFlow proposes (based on our Content Aware Optimization analysis). When LightFlow does the analysis for each video, it presents the graphical results in the Video Comparator explaining how the quality versus bit rate varies based on different settings, including the optimized settings recommended by LightFlow.


Under the Reports tab, you can quantify the parameters used by LightFlow to estimate your quality optimizations and cost savings:

  • Available user bandwidth (Kbps)
  • Start buffer length (seconds)
  • Encoding cost per minute
  • Storage cost per GB
  • Delivery cost per GB
  • Estimated play times (plays/asset)
  • Average playtime (minutes/asset)
