IBC 2015: PERSEUS® demonstrates unprecedented performance and commercial applications with Tier-1 partners and customers

  • New Tier-1 partnerships make PERSEUS video compression technology available across the TV value chain
  • PERSEUS shows unprecedented benefits to broadcast and OTT operators at IBC
  • V-Nova participates in three IBC conference sessions, including the Keynote Session: “Breaking the Codec: Are current video compression standards enough?”

London, September 1st, 2015 – V-Nova Ltd., a leading provider of video compression solutions, announced today that IBC will see a number of new demonstrations of its PERSEUS® video compression technology.  V-Nova will team with its growing consortium of leading industry partners to show how PERSEUS can be deployed to reduce video bandwidth requirements and obtain irresistible ‘beyond bandwidth’ advantages.

“We are very excited to show IBC guests how far we have come since our public launch in April 2015,” commented Guido Meardi, V-Nova CEO & Co-founder.  “In addition to the bitrate savings we have demonstrated in commercial contribution applications, visitors will see how PERSEUS delivers significant improvements in picture quality, processing speed using standard hardware, signal robustness, as well as simultaneous reductions in footprint, power usage and library redundancy. Graceful, block-free degradation at ultra-low bitrates is another unique benefit.  PERSEUS solves commercial challenges that are not addressable using legacy approaches.  These include UHD delivery over existing HD infrastructure and HD over 3G mobile networks.  PERSEUS also enables high-quality mobile video in bandwidth constrained emerging markets, such as Africa and India.”

Partner demonstrations will enable IBC visitors to see PERSEUS in action in real world, commercial applications throughout the media delivery chain. As well as supporting its renowned partners, V-Nova will announce new significant Tier-1 partnerships in the run-up to, and during, IBC. PERSEUS-powered demonstrations on the show floor will include:

  • The only full-frame real-time glass-to-glass delivery of UHD/4K p60 content
  • The world’s first integration of PERSEUS in a linear compression headend for DTH, IPTV and OTT service delivery
  • A deployed VOD asset generation solution using PERSEUS-enabled transcoders
  • Market-ready ultra-low latency Contribution solutions
  • An innovative Remote Production solution leveraging unique PERSEUS benefits
  • PERSEUS-enabled set-top-box chipsets
  • Multiple middleware and media players showing support for PERSEUS encoded streams
  • PERSEUS delivery within multiple transport mechanisms, from satellite to video CDN solutions and optimisation for the public internet
