Benefits

Cloud Storage Management

Leveraging Tencent Cloud's powerful cloud storage platform, VOD provides secure and reliable cloud storage services tailored for audios and videos, such as audio/video upload, cold/hot backup storage, media asset management, video information retrieval, and origin server migration.

Professional Video Processing

VOD boasts cloud-based transcoding and processing services that can handle vast amounts of multimedia data. It can transcode audio/video files to different formats suitable for OTT services or playback on PC and mobile devices. It also offers services such as cover generating, editing, porn detection, and encryption.

Global Acceleration

Tencent Cloud has 1,100+ CDN cache nodes across China covering China Telecom, China Unicom, China Mobile, and over a dozen small and medium-sized ISPs. Outside China it has 200+ cache nodes in more than 50 countries and regions across North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia, supporting global acceleration of live broadcasting services.

Low Costs

VOD is billed daily or monthly on a pay-as-you-go basis with no minimum fees, so you only need to pay for what you use. Plus, it can be scaled elastically at any time according to your needs, thus greatly reducing your costs.

Statistics Analysis

VOD can visualize your file management experience via API or console. You can monitor the entire lifecycle of a video file from upload and storage to the transcoding and delivery.

Video AI

VOD can automatically tag audio/video file contents and generate covers with the optimal video frame. It can also screen the file content for pornographic, terrorism, and politically sensitive information, helping you lower labor costs and risks of incompliance.

Tencent Extreme Speed High Definition (TESHD)

Empowered by deep learning models, VOD can identify video scenes and use optimal preprocessing and codec algorithms to enhance video quality without changing the bitrate. Alternatively, it can also lower the bitrate while ensuring decent video quality.

Adaptive Bitrate Streaming

Fueled by reinforcement learning, VOD can intelligently select the bitrate most suitable for the current network environment, ensuring smooth playback at all times.

DRM Encryption

VOD provides a one-stop DRM solution covering content encryption, transcoding, packaging, license generation, key management, and decryption for playback to help you avoid economic losses caused by video piracy.
