Synamedia says it has achieved 8K real-time encoding and streaming with ‘zero compromise’ on its VIVID Compression platform powered by AMD EPYC 7763 processors.
According to the company, leveraging AMD’s processors eliminates the need for screen splitting and other “technology tricks” which compromise video quality.
The team at Synamedia built compression algorithms by leveraging the full codec toolset, powered by AMD’s processors. This meant there was no need to split the 8K signal into 4K quadrants, eliminating issues with memory communication and throughput, as well as local video quality variations.
Synamedia has also extended its cloud-based video quality analysis solution, Video-Quality-as-a-Service (VQaaS), with 8K resolution. VQaaS provides both objective measurement and subjective visualisation analysis, resulting in a simplified way to measure improvements of 8K video quality, said Synamedia.
“We are experiencing a technology shift here, combining our unique and one-of-a-kind compression algorithms, advanced video analytics, and proven expertise with the incredible speeds of the AMD EPYC 7763 processors,” said Elke Hungenaert, vice president, Product Management, Synamedia.
“The flexibility of using one CPU without a single technological compromise allows us to provide our customers with the high-quality video content they expect from us. By combining our team’s expertise with the performance of AMD EPYC processors, we can enable more 8K content to the market at a more affordable price to enable the 8K economy.”
