All Noisypeak solutions including Encoding As a Serviceare built on a uniform set of advanced video encoding technologies. It doesn’t matter which Noisypeak device you choose, it will have the same set of core features and user interface. The usage experience is fully transparent across all models.

standard settings for multibitrate

Many options are possible for multibitrate configuration. In our benchmarks we use the following settings for SD and HD:

HD (HEVC)
# Bitrate Resolution
1 4500 1920x1080
2 2500 1280x720
3 1500 1024x576
HD
# Bitrate Resolution
1 6000 1920x1080
2 4500 1280x720
3 2500 1024x576
SD
# Bitrate Resolution
1 1600 720x404
2 1100 640x360
3 700 480x270
4 400 312x176
