V-Nova Launches Perseus Platform

The cloud-based SaaS transcoding and delivery platform enables service providers and third party streaming platforms to rapidly launch Perseus Plus services offering “higher quality video at up to 50% lower bitrates to a multitude of existing devices.”

Running on AWS, the Perseus platform can be rapidly integrated into any service via APIs and utilises industry standard security and scalability practices for operator-grade robustness and uptime. The platform is also integrated with Amazon CloudFront enabling immediate distribution of content, or operators can push to any CDN of their choosing.

Perseus Plus is described by V-Nova as a unique compression technology that enhances the compression and computational performance of existing codecs such as AVC/H.264, HEVC, VP9 and in the future AV1.
Guido Meardi, CEO and co-founder, said: “Moving transcoding services to the cloud, in particular for live streams, has remained economically challenging for many operators despite the clear benefits. However, the Perseus platform redefines those dynamics completely. I invite operators of all shapes and sizes to trial it alongside their existing encoding pipelines and see the results for themselves – thanks to the platform we can have them up and running in no time.”

V-Nova is offering free trials of the platform until 31 May.
