V-Nova Addresses Challenges in Sports-Video Delivery
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome V-Nova as a corporate sponsor. Headquartered in London, the technology company provides next-generation compression solutions that address the ever-growing challenges in media processing and delivery.
“The SVG is unquestionably the leading forum for executives and thought leaders in the delivery of the most compelling and technically challenging content in our industry: sports,” says Bill Hendler, VP, sales, U.S., V-Nova. “We’re looking forward to working with the group to play a part in addressing those challenges across the entire video-delivery chain.”
V-Nova’s award-winning PERSEUS is the only cross-media codec format and delivers on the promises of next-generation image and video compression today. Using PERSEUS technology, media and entertainment companies can now monetize unmet consumer demand for higher-definition video everywhere, on existing devices and infrastructure, with a simple software upgrade.
The PERSEUS technology works in two ways: PERSEUS Pro is an Intra codec for mathematically lossless and visually lossless professional production, contribution, and imaging workflows. PERSEUS Plus is a temporal codec designed to enhance a base codec — such as H.264, HEVC, or AV1 — adding additional detail for unbeatable efficiency in distribution to consumers.
V-Nova is currently working with a range of major sports networks to optimize contribution and remote-production workflows using its P.Link contribution encoder/decoder appliance. Recently, V-Nova worked with NECF to allow Fox Sports Detroit to embrace a new remote-production workflow, splitting its production team among six sites rather than centralizing in one control room.
