Transcoding

Video transcoding is the process of decoding a video from one format and re-encoding it into another. In an Internet video context, transcoding is frequently used to refer to the process of taking a high-bitrate video and, from it, creating multiple renditions to form an encoding ladder for adaptive bitrate streaming.
