Crunch can perform:

  • ⚡️ Video Optimization: Crunch takes your original video in .mp4 and .mov formats, and performs Analyzing and Encoding as a two-step process. This lets us generate the same perceptible video quality as input, but at the lowest file size possible. Most video optimization services that are available today are making a simple trade of reduced file size with a corresponding reduction in quality. Crunch internally uses proven video processing algorithms and methods on top of any standard video codecs to control the encoding operation in a truly content-aware fashion.
