iSIZE Joins AWS Partner Network

iSIZE, a London-based specialist in deep learning for video delivery, has joined the AWS Partner Network (APN), the global community of businesses using Amazon Web Services (AWS) to develop products and services.

The company has also completed an AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR) of its BitSave deep psychovisual pre-processing technology. BitSave pre-processes the input video prior to encoding and removes imperceptible information that is costly to encode.

It improves efficiency over the non-preprocessed content encoding, saving an estimated 15%-25% in bitrate and energy over the utilized encoder, verified by standard widely-used quality metrics such as VMAF and SSIM, according to the company. FTR enables AWS Partners to identify and remediate risks in products or solutions, being led by an AWS Partner Solutions Architect (PSA) who reviews AWS Partner products against specific requirements based on the Security, Reliability, and Operational Excellence pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework.

BitSave allows the encoder to be used with simpler encoding recipes, making it faster, saving datacentre costs and improving sustainability of video streaming. It requires no changes to the encoding, delivery or decoding devices, the company insisted.

“By being a part of the APN, we can enable our customers to maximise existing technology investments, benefit from greater efficiencies when processing video streams, and provide better video streaming experiences to millions of users worldwide,” said iSIZE CEO Sergio Grce.
