InterDigital is joining forces with Vantrix to demonstrate live transcoding using the Vantrix Media Platform.
Vantrix has enhanced its open transcoding pipeline with InterDigital’s PerceptFX perceptual pre-processor, and has claimed that this has resulted in bandwidth savings for video compressed with H.264 and H.265.
The company noted that encoding 4K video for normal viewing distance with this new process allows the video to be streamed at 10.7 Mbps for a 29% saving in bandwidth. In some instances, savings can reach 50%, Vantrix added.
The Vantrix Media Platform is a software-defined video-processing platform with a modular, pluggable and extensible architecture that is open to third-party plugins.
InterDigital’s PerceptFX technology eliminates imperceptible image data for 4K and other resolution video, said the company, to yield bandwidth savings compared to traditional encoding solutions.
