Scality’s partner Bitmovin provides a dedicated service, enabling live and on demand encoding of videos into adaptive bitrate formats such as MPEG-DASH and HLS in the cloud. This service comes with a comprehensive API that allows seamless integration into any video workflow.
Recently Bitmovin released a managed on-premise encoding solution on top of Kubernetes and Docker that works for VoD and Live and offers the same features as their cloud encoding service. Managed on-premises encoding offers the benefits of Software as a Service solution while utilizing your own infrastructure.
With the release of their managed on-premises encoding, Bitmovin also released support for Scality RING storage, allowing this storage solution to be used in the private cloud. In the following tutorial we will describe how to setup a Scality S3 Server and use it together with the Bitmovin API to download input assets from, and upload the encoded content Scality S3 Server.
