Is the Beamr Optiimization Technology being used in the Transcoder VOD or is that totally separate? Any plans to integrate?
Beamr’s Optimization Technology is integrated into the Transcoder for HEVC. For h.264, Beamr Optimizer is available as a separate product.

Excellent news! Now I just need to learn how to use it correctly.
The CABR rate-control that is available with the Beamr 5x codec SDK that comes with the Free to Start edition of Beamr Transcoder VOD is very simple to activate - we’ve abstracted the complexity of needing to configure a lot of fields to essentially a “check box.”
If you want to see it in action, check out the following YouTube links where you’ll get an idea of the savings possible.
