V-Nova, a provider of video compression solutions and NETINT Technologies, an supplier of computational storage and video processing SoC solutions, have announced a collaborative roadmap that accelerates V-Nova LCEVC’s market deployment while further improving the performance of NETINT’s encoding technology.
NETINT Technologies launched the Codensity T408 video transcoder platform featuring real-time, high-quality, scalable H.264/H.265 ASIC based transcoding for live video streaming at up to 8K. Packaged in a 2.5” U.2 module form-factor for easy field upgrades, the T408 features sub-frame encoding latency that ensures an immersive experience for interactive video services and ultra-low-power and high density encoding for Edge based deployments.
“With the explosive growth of internet streaming video, new technologies that enable lower total cost of ownership for data centre operators is a critical requirement for creating scalable, sustainable encoding solutions. We have been following the progress of LCEVC standardisation and are excited by the recently published performance reports and its ability to be deployed immediately, even in software,” said Tao Zhong, Chief Executive Officer, NETINT Technologies. “We are excited with the performance of LCEVC and look forward to a continued collaboration between both companies, as we work towards implementing LCEVC in NETINT’s next-generation silicon.”
“Our collaboration with NETINT illustrates again how even high-performance hardware transcoding applications can be enhanced to deliver next-generation picture quality for both live and VOD applications,” added Guido Meardi, CEO and co-founder at V-Nova. “The proven ability of LCEVC to enhance the compression performance of any base video codec (e.g., AVC, HEVC, AV1, EVC or VVC) while lowering the overall computational complexity, is gaining strong traction in multiple applications. It’s great to see more and more companies working towards LCEVC adoption. We see a lot of interest in high-quality high-density transcoding from customers of both parties, so we look forward to working together in addressing these opportunities.”
