Best of Show Awards 2019 WinnerOur first IBC Show was a resounding success. We were delighted to be exhibiting in the Future Zone – the place to discover the ground-breaking applications, innovations and concept technologies. Alongside a wide range of international companies and academia, we were proud to launch and demonstrate BitSave, a first-of-a-kind, fully AI-powered encoding platform that enables up to 70 percent bitrate saving versus non-AI competing codec solutions.

It was a fantastic opportunity to network with fellow exhibitors as well as to talk to new and potential customers interested in being able to deliver a high-quality experience for both VOD and live streaming customers whilst saving bandwidth and reducing bitrate ladders. We received a good amount of attention from several planet-level streaming companies with whom we are still discussing possible ways of partnering and licensing iSize technology.

Highlights for us included the opportunity for us to discuss the future of Compression and Distribution Technologies to a packed audience at the IABM  Future Trends Theatre, to see our CTO, Yiannis Andreopoulos, deliver an insightful technical paper as part of “Tech Talk: AI – more ways it will revolutionise our industry” and, of course, to receive a Best of Show Award from TVB Europe.

If you’re interested to see Yiannis present his technical paper, you can watch the presentation on the IBC TV website (Yiannis starts talking 21 minutes in):
