Calculates required CPU resources for given transcoding volume


Use this sizing calculator to estimate how many CPUs you will need for offline video transcoding in your organization, given your required VOD encoding parameters.

How to use


Select Format, Resolution, Quality and Bitrate and then click the Add to List button. This will create a virtual transcoding preset. Continue adding presets as required, according to your VOD transcoding needs.
