V-Nova Perseus Plus Lands On Telestream’s Lightspeed Live Encoding

The Perseus Plus codec will be supported by Telestream’s Lightspeed Live video streaming system from version 3.0.

V-Nova claims Perseus Plus enables video to be transmitted at half the bitrate of existing H.264 solutions whilst improving picture quality, and it also increases encoding density by 2-3x when compared to HEVC.

The combination of Telestream and V-Nova technologies offers video service operators “unparalleled performance”, while “significantly increasing operational efficiency” they say. 

“We have always been committed to ensuring our customers have access to the most innovative and advanced video delivery capabilities on the market,” said Scott Murray, VP of Product Management at Telestream. “It is clear that V-Nova’s unique Perseus codec plays a key role in rolling out higher-quality and more efficient video services.”

Guido Meardi, CEO and co-founder at V-Nova, said, “We are seeing tremendous momentum with major international video service providers looking to upgrade their video delivery to achieve higher quality. Telestream has come up time and time again as the preferred encoder vendor for so many of them and we’re excited that they will now have an out-of-the-box solution to switch on the power of Perseus Plus delivery..
