Perseus Can Run on NVIDIA GPUs

Compression technology developer V-Nova has announced that its Perseus video processing technology can now run on NVIDIA GPUs, and is now commercially available to equipment vendors, system integrators, service providers and operators.

Perseus' "massively parallel" approach to signal processing means that it is able to run on a GPU without additional hardware.

“This provides a quantum leap in real-time video compression efficiency across a number of professional and consumer devices such as encoders, transcoders, set-top boxes and connected devices,” says V-Nova.

Perseus GPU-powered products are being deployed in video contribution applications, delivering high-quality feeds from events and through the backbones of Tier-1 operators and service providers. It claims to deliver UHD/4K with visually lossless quality at 300 Mbps, 2.5% of the original uncompressed signal size. Both encoding and decoding processes can run in real-time on a single NVIDIA GPU well below the 16ms necessary to process a full frame UHD/4K picture at 60 fps.

“Whereas legacy codecs are highly serialized, Perseus is able to harness all of the processing power of NVIDIA GPUs. Perseus’ ability to distribute processing load across the entire GPU allows the processor to ‘clock down’ to a more power efficient mode of operation,” said Guido Meardi, V-Nova CEO / Co-founder. “With support for NVIDIA GPUs, we are now able to provide the manufacturers of professional video equipment with massively parallel compression technology running on massively parallel hardware, to deliver the best possible video compression performance.”
