More than ever, video and preparing it for delivery is a critical part of many jobs. One of the keys to delivering a high-quality video experience is understanding the fundamentals of video and video compression.


Video Compression Handbook gives you these keys by explaining the core concepts of compression, the latest tools to use, and the important workflows for creating video for specific deliveries. After the groundwork is laid, you will learn how to compress video according to the specific requirements of your projects and will learn some best practices by following the author's own tips and recipes.


Experts in the field lend their own solutions in several sidebars throughout the book, making this a valuable learning tool for anyone learning to encode video, whether you are a video editor, independent filmmaker, or simply involved in the video-to-viewer process.

Author Biography

Andy Beach was a video geek who got into this business after starting in the postproduction world. He quickly realized that making video look good was hard and was worth spending time to learn to do better and to pass that knowledge on to others. His career took him to the startup world, where he built encoders and live streaming tools for a living, and eventually to his role at Microsoft, where he works with a large-scale commercial media infrastructure.


Aaron Owen got his start in live television and then continued his career in commercial postproduction, playing a key role in transforming Phoenix Editorial (now Bonfire Labs) from a three-suite boutique editorial companyinto a full-fledged facility. Leveraging his vast advertising and high-end corporate experience, he founded Cinematiq in 2012 with the goal of bringing high-end postproduction techniques to filmmakers everywhere.
