AuroraCloud Intelligent Transcoder


The Visionular AuroraCloud Intelligent Transcoder combines AI and advanced image processing into a simple to use media processing cloud service that can reduce the bitrate of existing H.264, HEVC, and AV1 encoded files by 30% to 50% with no perceptual loss of quality.

Built for modern video workflows, users manage file and live stream transcoding tasks through the web console, rest API, or AWS triggered event. The resulting transcoded files are fully standards-compliant able to be played across all devices. 

With AuroraCloud, regardless of the business model, you will find an easy to calculate return on investment because of improved user retention metrics and reduced operational costs. Simply drop your files in an Amazon S3 bucket to experience the power of AuroraCloud.

The AuroraCloud Intelligent Transcoder dynamically optimizes each input video file using AI-based scene classification, proprietary content-adaptive encoding technology, and video quality enhancement, to deliver a high-quality media experience at the lowest bitrate.

By minimizing video bitrate and file sizes while maintaining the same visual quality, smoother video playback, and reduced operational costs will be a primary benefit.

Source video files can vary in quality. Using our intelligent video processing the system will remove noise, reduce blurriness, and enhance overall video clarity.

Advanced codec standards are being developed that can reach high levels of compression efficiency without introducing visual artifacts. These standards do not enjoy sufficient playback support in the market which is why AuroraCloud uses the most ubiquitous codecs available, H.264 and HEVC, to enable reliable and smooth playback on all devices (desktop, TV, and mobile).

Support for the full ABR ladder includes multiple resolutions (SD, HD, UHD) to allow users with varying network connection speeds the best viewing experience.

AuroraCloud is the fastest way to integrate the two-time MSU #1 nominated Aurora1 (AV1) along with Aurora5 (HEVC) and Aurora4 (H.264) codecs for file and live streaming based workflows.
