Multi-Rate Bundle Encoding
Automatically packages files for Apple HLS, Adobe Dynamic Streaming, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, MPEG DASH, and MP4. Five times faster than encoding separately!
We___ve added VP9, the successor to VP8. VP9 reduces the bit rate by up to 50% compared to VP8.
This new HLS security feature utilizes customized root URLs in manifest files in order to serve index files and media files from different locations.
Closed Caption Insertion
Import a separate .scc file and video file. Squeeze 10 will link the two together into broadcast streams.
Preliminary 4K support ___ Two 4K presets have been added including H.264 and x265.
Optimized HTML5 & Multi-Screen Encoding
Makes encoding video files for multi-screen playback easy and intuitive.

No other encoding product has anything like it.
Pre/Post-Roll Stitching & Closed Captioning
Add pre- or post-roll video to any primary video. Full support for both EIA-608 or EIA-708 closed captioning in source video, and corresponding TTML output with compressed Squeeze files, for standard and high-definition digital video content.
