Perseus SDK Now Available

V Nova

V-Nova has launched its Perseus compression technology (V-Nova’s Perseus Lowers UltraHD Bandwidth Requirements) as an SDK. With this move, Perseus can be built into third-party encoders and video players. Perseus can be deployed on existing ecosystems for the delivery of Full HD video – UltraHD is not mentioned.

The SDK is available as an encoder or decoder plug-in (EPI/DPI). These are supported on multiple different platforms, including Intel’s x86 encoders and iOS/Android consumer devices. Pre-integrated encoding/decoding combinations are also available through industry partners, to speed time-to-market.

The company has also announced a new partner programme that is being joined by:

  • United Kingdom – TechEx, UK
  • France – Metracom
  • Spain – MoMe
  • Italy – Communication Video Engineering (CVE)
  • Benelux – Divitel
  • Finland – MediaTrade
  • Middle East – CVE

Under the programme, V-Nova’s contribution compression technology will be made available through national partners. V-Nova said that its technology was used in the recent ‘first ever’ Ultra HD transmission of the “El Clásico” match between Real Madrid and Barcelona.
