Video Transcoding / Conversion
Video transcoding is the direct digital-to-digital format conversion from one encoding format to another. Perhaps you have older footage stored in an obsolete format that needs to be converted into a more modern format. Or maybe you have current footage that you want to repurpose for online use or playback on a mobile device. Or perhaps the video format recorded by your camera is not directly compatible with your editing software. These are just a few of the reasons you may need to utilize a video transcoding service.
The most popular method of video transcoding is to decode the original data to an intermediate format in a way that still contains the content of the original, and then encoding the resulting file into the target format. This allows the opportunity to edit the footage in its interim state prior to re-encoding.
