Optimizing Storage Costs of Large News Archives Through Dynamic Management of Video Bit Rates

WP_Optimize_Storage_Costs_Dynamic_Bitrates_Coverwithborder.pngThe largely unpredictable long-term editorial value of most news content makes managing news archives frustrating from a business and cost perspective. A relatively small percentage of stories and video assets will be re-purposed and monetized in the future, with the remaining content consuming costly storage resources but ultimately never used.

This paper explores a strategy that preserves all assets but also controls storage costs, by dynamically reducing the file size of archived clips when configurable criteria indicate that they are less likely to be used in the future.
