When iSize Technology is used with MPEG H.264/AVC, it allows for 40-60% reduction in bitrate*, whereas, when used with MPEG HEVC, 10-25% bitrate reduction is obtained – all with the power of our proprietary machine learning IP
* Bjontegaard-Delta bitrate over the rate regime of practical HD & 4K streaming
iSize brings over 2.5dB improvement at the low-bitrate / low-PSNR regime (where compression artifacts are noticeable by viewers), and surpasses all upscaling solutions, even those including highly complex deep neutral networks
The iSize solution can be “bolted” on top of any standard or proprietary video codec to provide bitrate saving, while remaining compatible with standard format containers (e.g.,MP4) and transport stream protocols (e.g.,MPEG-TS)
iSize technology caries out intelligent low-resolution encoding and decoding and upscales to full resolution at the decoder side; hence, it is computationally efficient for both the encoder and decoder, and can even run on CPU-only systems
iSize offers 4-fold reduction of the energy footprint of any video encoder, thereby prolonging battery life in energy-constrained drones, autonomous vehicles, action-cam systems, live video streaming from smartphones, etc.
While iSize benefits from off-line training, by combining content-adaptive filtering with machine learning, the technology can process any content input, from entertainment, sports and gaming to thermal images and surveillance footage
