V-Nova Promotes AI-driven Compression

V-Nova is promoting its PERSEUS compression technology and says its the only commercially deployed codec leveraging AI.

Guido Meardi, CEO and co-founder at V-Nova, said: “It is an amazing time for media delivery transformation and compression is at the core of it. Compression can enable many new applications and business models, from everything cloud and IP to debottlenecking AI and ML functions. It is not science fiction, we are showcasing some of this power already at NAB as well as deploying products, such as P-Link, that leverage AI to reduce visually lossless UHD contribution bitrates by up to 70% and at the industry’s lowest cost per channel."
V-Nova’s solutions shown at NAB include P.Link an intra-only contribution encoder with claimed significant efficiency gains over JPEG 2000, MPEG-4 and HEVC-I solutions. It is also showing PERSEUS Pro for ML-powered media analysis and indexing acceleration and a new cloud-based solution for deployment of PERSEUS performance on streaming services.

PERSEUS Plus uses some of the same principles to enhance the compression and computational performance of existing codecs such as AVC/h.264, HEVC, VP9 and in the future AV1. Working with industry-standard formats like MPEG-TS, HLS and MPEG-DASH, PERSEUS Plus delivers the best picture quality across any platform. At NAB 2019, V-Nova will present new cloud distribution solutions to quickly enable operators and service providers to launch PERSEUS Plus enhanced services.
