October 16, 2014

Faroudja Enterprises has announced that company founder and president, Yves Faroudja, will present “Improving Video Streaming and File Compression Efficiency without Affecting Quality” at the SMPTE® 2014 Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (SMPTE 2014) in Hollywood, California.

Scheduled for Tuesday, October 21 at 10:45 AM, Yves’ presentation will show how the efficiency of today’s digital video compression systems may be improved through the use of pre-processing (before compression encoding) and post-processing (after compression encoding). The presentation is part of the “Video Compression” track, held in Salon 2 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel.

Yves Faroudja has been a major contributor to advanced video technologies for broadcast, digital cinema, and home theater. He has been granted over 75 patents and received three Emmy® Awards, including the Charles F. Jenkins Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award. A life Fellow of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers®, Yves was awarded the David Sarnoff Gold Medal, and has been the recipient of many other honors.

The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) is the preeminent leader in the advancement of the art, science, and craft of the image, sound, and metadata ecosystem, worldwide. The SMPTE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition is the premier annual event for motion-imaging and media technology, production, operations, and the allied arts and sciences.

Faroudja Enterprises develops intellectual property to improve video streaming and file compression efficiency without affecting perceived quality. The technology potentially delivers a bitrate reduction of 35 to 50 percent with any existing compression system via the use of novel pre- and post-processing that is video compression/codec agnostic.
