V-Nova has released a software development kit that will allow operators, service providers, system integrators and online video platform providers to integrate and deploy the company’s compression technology on existing ecosystems.

The company’s Perseus video processing technology promises delivery of UHD content at HD bitrates, HD at SD bitrates and SD signals at audio rates.

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 workflow.

The plug-ins are supported on different platforms including Intel x86-based encoders and iOS and Android consumer devices. They are also available in pre-integrated encoding/decoding combinations.

“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,” said Guido Meardi, V-Nova chief executive and co-founder (pictured, right).

“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.”
