SlashedCloud's Video Encoding Service

As we approach the end of the year, we look forward to being your go-to partner for all your image processing and video encoding needs. Here we'll unveil some details about our upcoming Video Encoding Service

Transparent Billing Process

We aim to introduce a dynamic pricing model where you only pay for delivered assets. The pricing is calculated based on a simple multiplier system, taking into account both input and output encoding jobs. This ensures that you pay for the value you receive.

The status of each encode is meticulously tracked through the following stages: RECEIVED, VALIDATING, ENQUEUED, PROCESSING and FINISHED.

The billing process begins only after an asset is delivered.
Estimates are provided during the validation phase, where a captive amount is applied.
Actual charges are applied incrementally as uploads are completed.

Similar to our image processing service, you will have access to a cost calculator that enables you to accurate predict each associated cost and applied multiplier.

Codec Flexibility

Choose between AV1, H.265 and H.264 codecs based on your specific needs. Whether you prioritize cutting-edge compression efficiency with AV1 and H.265 or broad compatibility with H.264, the power is in your hands.

Customizable Encoding Parameters

Select between up to 30 or up to 60 frames per second (FPS), adjust the output quality, define custom file names, tailor the output video resolutions to match your platform or device requirements and even personalize the callback mechanism to receive notifications in the format that suits your workflow best. We give you the power to fully tailor your videos to match your desired viewing experience and meet your exact specifications.

Priority Settings

Optimize your workflow by assigning high or low priority to each encoding request you make. High-priority tasks undergo processing with a 2x multiplier, providing a streamlined approach to accommodate stringent deadlines while maintaining flexibility.

Destination and Storage Options

Seamlessly integrate with your workflow by choosing destination folders and storage locations, with support for popular cloud storage solutions like Amazon S3.

Real-Time Monitoring

Track the status of your encoding jobs almost instantly and gain visibility into the time taken for each task. Whether it's the status of a processing job or the exact finishing time of an encode.

What's Next?

We're committed to delivering a service that is not only efficient and cost-effective but also transparent and trustworthy.

In the upcoming year, we're exploring the possibility of offering a complete package, by including a video player service supporting both AV1, H.265 and H.264. This player will provide multiple streaming methods, allowing you to choose the best fit for your content delivery.

Stay tuned for more updates!
