Transcoding service

Fee calculation formula: Transcoding fee = Output file duration x Transcoding unit price

Description:
1.The output specification is determined by the horizontal and vertical sides of the output video resolution. For example, output video resolutions where the horizontal side does not exceed 1280 and the vertical side does not exceed 720 are regarded as SD (1280 x 720) specification. If the horizontal side of the output video exceeds 1280 or the vertical side exceeds 720, this video provides a higher specification
2. Above price is for normal transcoding, the price of narrowband HD 1.0 is triple the normal price.
