Cisco AnyRes VOD Post-Encode Node

Optimize High-Volume Encoding

Checking the quality of every frame of every output file is tedious and painstaking, especially when outputting multiple files for Apple HTTP adaptive bitrate (ABR). The Cisco AnyRes VOD Post-Encode Node, formerly known as Inlet Armada Post-Encode Node, lends much-needed support for this tedious task.

The Post-Encode Node packages and delivers the assets, including companion files such as poster art or a movie trailer, and performs quality control (QC) tasks. The Post-Encode Node license is optional for Cisco AnyRes VOF, but it is required for quality checking and delivery.
