When a video file is ready to be transcoded from one format to another, Cisco AnyRes Encode Node, formerly known as Inlet Armada Encode Node, performs the job. First, the Encode Node decodes the incoming source file. It then makes new assets that are ready for playback on any television, PC, and mobile devices.
Advanced parameters tell the encoding engine which video, audio, and wrapper format to use, as well as what quality settings and profiles are desired. All the popular file codecs, including HTTP adaptive bitrate (ABR) formats, are supported.
The Encode Node is required for file-based transcoding with Cisco AnyRes VOD. Adding Encode Nodes increases the capacity of the platform to simultaneously output files.
