Perseus can deliver visually lossless UHD contribution.
Compression specialist V-Nova has bought the patents of Faroudja Enterprises, a video imaging specialist to enhance its Perseus codec.
Faroudja Enterprises was founded by Emmy Award winner Yves Faroudja, and the acquisition of its patent portfolio is a strong investment by V-Nova. The addition of the technology will improve the efficiency of V-Nova's compression technology Perseus.
Guido Meardi, V-Nova CEO & Co-Founder, said: "These are exciting times for V-Nova and our customers, as we continue to expand our capabilities and grow internationally. New, disruptive technologies such as Ultra-HD TV, 360 video, VR immersive video and high quality video transmission on any network can all significantly benefit from solutions that reduce the bandwidth requirements in a cost-effective and scalable way. By acquiring the highly complementary patents of Faroudja Enterprises’ ground-breaking solutions, we are enhancing our ability to achieve this even further. Faroudja’s technology has already been demonstrated to provide a bitrate reduction of 35-50% over an existing compression technique. A tighter integration with V-Nova’s Perseus will leverage the codec’s own bitrate reduction performance to provide even greater benefits.”
The patent portfolio consists of the Faroudja pre-processor (for use prior to compression) and post-processor (after compression decoding). The system also includes techniques for video enhancement such as multi-dimensional video processing as well as the use of a unique support layer in parallel with the conventional compression path.
