IBC 2017: Integration of V-Nova PERSEUS 2 with THEOplayer maximises quality across HTML5 platforms

V-Nova and THEO Technologies have announced the availability of V-Nova PERSEUS 2 decoding capabilities with THEOplayer. The joint solution allows operators and service providers to deploy the most efficient streaming services at the best picture quality within the largest standard cross-platform environment: HTML5. The solution will make its debut at IBC 2017, where it will be demonstrated on the THEOplayer’s stand 14.M32 and V-Nova’s stand 11.B30u.

The joint solution combines the next-generation compression performance of V-Nova PERSEUS 2 with THEOplayer Universal Video Player’s ability to consistently deliver the highest viewer experience across web and mobile web and its compatibility with all HTML5 online environments. For operators and service providers this equates to the best possible user experience and picture quality, increased reach and retention, while at the same time minimising the costs of delivery and platform support.

“Ubiquity of high-quality service delivery is fundamental to the business of content owners and TV operators and this means support across the widest ecosystem of devices on all delivery networks,” said Guido Meardi, CEO and Co-Founder of V-Nova. “Unique to PERSEUS and contrary to typical codec generational cycles, we designed PERSEUS 2 to be even lighter and to make it compatible with a wide range of environments, including HTML5-based browsers. Integration with THEOplayer demonstrates how quickly best in class technologies can come together to provide a pre-integrated, turnkey solution that combines top performance for all media types with a truly universal player for all connected devices, both online and on mobile web.”

V-Nova PERSEUS 2 addresses the real bottlenecks of IP video delivery, allowing for better viewing experiences across all data networks. Designed to provide enhanced platform support, the solution enables operators to quickly benefit from the core efficiencies of high quality encoding.

This is particularly valuable for new broadcasters offering video-hungry services such as social media applications. V-Nova PERSEUS 2 maintains full compatibility with the rest of the delivery workflows, such as DRMs, streaming protocols like HLS and DASH, ad-insertion and other processes. Coupled with the Content Delivery Networks (CDN) savings associated with bandwidth and profile reduction, V-Nova PERSEUS 2 is the most cost effective solution for next-generation service deployment today.
