iSIZE is exhibiting as part of the Connected Media|IP at NAB 2021 and will show the latest version of BitSave, its fully artificial intelligence (AI)-powered technology. This first-of-a-kind solution leverages deep perceptual optimization in order to optimize video quality, and it offers significant bitrate savings for all video encoding standards.

ISIZE has also been selected to present a paper – entitled Perceptually-Optimized AI-Based Video Delivery Over Existing Standards – on Sunday, October 10 at 15:20, presented by the company’s CTO and Co-Founder, Yiannis Andreopoulos. Additionally, Andreopoulos is participating in a panel session entitled Meeting the Demand for a Content Everywhere Future.

The latest updates to BitSave mean it is now capable of achieving even greater bitrate savings, along with a leap forward in video quality and optimization. iSIZE is also demonstrating a new AI-based video codec de-noising technology and a degenerative video compression innovation at NAB 2021. A server-side preprocessing enhancement, BitSave gives customers an elegant way to integrate AI with existing systems and encoders to achieve the savings without moving to new codec standards.

iSIZE CEO Sergio Grce said, “The accelerating demand for higher quality video streaming and the need to deliver their video content as cost efficiently as possible are challenges that everyone who streams media now faces. We know that the amount of video content is only going to increase and that the demand for higher resolution content is on an upward trend – Cisco forecasts that 56.8 percent of the global IP video traffic will be HD and 22.3 percent will be Ultra HD by 2022. Studies also show that the growing carbon footprint of video streaming has overtaken that of the airline industry. BitSave addresses all three of these major challenges in a cost-efficient way without compromising the end viewer experience.”

iSIZE’s patent-pending technology is fully codec independent, increasing the efficiency and performance of all latest codec standards including AVC/H.264, HEVC/H.265, and VP9. This ensures seamless integration with existing media workflows, without breaking any standards or requiring any changes in the streaming process or the client devices.
