Video compression is not a new process; however, it is forever evolving. New standards, codecs, and ways of getting the job done are continually being created. Newcomers to video compression and seasoned veterans alike need to know how to harness the tools and use them for specific workflows for broadcast, the Web, Blu-rays, set-top boxes, digital cinema, and mobile devices. Here to guide students through the multitude of formats and confusing array of specifications, Andy Beach and Aaron Owen use a practical, straightforward approach to explaining video compression. After covering the fundamentals of audio and video compression, they explore the current applications for encoding, discuss the common workflows associated with each, and then look at the most common delivery platforms. The book includes examples from the authors’ projects as well as recipes that offer a way to define some of the best practices of video compression today.

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.
