Ground breaking video compression technologies launched
01 April 2015
London based consortium V-Nova has released a number of video compression products based on its PERSEUS technology, which could make 4K more commercially available.
The new products include a scalable end-to-end solution for mass-market adoption of live ultra-high definition (UHD), as well as other distribution products for UHD, high definition (HD), and standard definition (SD) video.
PERSEUS demonstrates in both testing and live operations, some two to three times average compression gains, at all quality levels, under practical real-time operating scenarios versus h.264, HEVC and JPEG2000 video compression formats.
According to Guido Meardi, CEO and founder of V-Nova, PERSEUS enables UHD quality at HD bitrates, HD at SD bitrates, and SD video at audio bitrates.
PERSEUS makes 4K commercially viable at scale, enables HD over 3G/4G mobile networks and makes video available to millions who do not yet have it, he says, adding that PERSEUS achieves this within currently available bandwidth and infrastructure.
