Control deinterlacing by the Wowza Streaming Engine Transcoder

This article describes how to control the way the Transcoder in Wowza Streaming Engine™ media server software deinterlaces incoming video.

To control how Transcoder deinterlaces incoming video, add the following parameter to the Decode/Video/Parameters section in your Transcoder template:

<Parameter>
    <Name>deinterlace</Name>
    <Value>512</Value>
    <Type>Long</Type>
</Parameter>
Possible values are:
 
  • 256 – field interpolation top
  • 768 – field interpolation bottom
  • 512 – vertical smoothing
Add 2048 to the above value to reorder fields.

For example, to turn on field interpolation bottom with field reordering use the following <Parameter>:
 
<Parameter>
    <Name>deinterlace</Name>
    <Value>2816</Value>
    <Type>Long</Type>
</Parameter>
