V-Nova has released its PERSEUS video compression technology as a software development kit (SDK) for integration into third-party encoders and video players. The release is intended to allow operators, service providers, system integrators and online video platform providers to integrate and deploy PERSEUS technology for streaming IP video over bandwidth-constrained networks, such as OTT video over mobile networks.
PERSEUS software is available in the form of an encoder plug-in (EPI) and a decoder plug-in (DPI) for integration and deployment within an operator's existing ecosystem. PERSEUS plug-ins are supported on a number of different platforms including Intel x86-based encoders and iOS and Android consumer devices. They are also available in pre-integrated encoding/decoding combinations through industry partners.
"This product release is the result of the work we have done in the past year with customers and industry partners to address real-life customer projects. We have now packaged the software to make it more readily scalable and available for TV service providers and platform operators to deploy on any equipment or media player in their ecosystem," said Guido Meardi, V-Nova CEO and co-founder.
PERSEUS video processing technology is designed to provide high quality video (both linear and non-linear) at very low bitrates, such as UltraHD/4K at HD bitrates on large screen TVs, HD at SD bitrates on legacy set-tops and mobile devices, and SD at audio rates on mobile devices.
