LOS ANGELES — Terpon, the producer and distributor of virtual reality webcams, is featuring V-Nova Ltd.’s Perseus software to clear video compression challenges, including the critical elements of high-quality live streaming.
VR streaming requires far more than traditional video streaming, and that’s why Terpon is working on a full ecosystem with cutting-edge technologies, according to Terpon’s chief commercial officer, Tim Scoffham.
“Terpon is proud to be partnering with V-Nova, to bring their cutting-edge video compression to a market where the benefits will be significant,” Scoffham said. “Perseus software is able to reduce bandwidth costs by as much as 70 percent without impacting quality and is supported on all major platforms, including natively on Android, iOS and Windows and on all major browsers without the need of any plug-ins.
“The improved compression efficiency enables sites to reach more viewers and provide a robust service in countries where only low bandwidths are available and provide higher-quality delivery everywhere else.”
V-Nova is a well-established and deployed brand in the Pay TV and OTT spaces, yet their attempt into the modern webcam industry is new, according to V-Nova’s senior vice president of product and marketing, Fabio Murra.
“We are excited to be working closely with Terpon to enhance the live streaming video compression systems in place for their webcam platform clients,” Murra said. “The Terpon solutions are leading innovation and performance in the market and I look forward to expanding the technological reach of many more camera and content platforms in the very near future.”
V-Nova’s Perseus software is the only cross-media codec format and provides the promises of next-generation image and video compression.
The Perseus technology operates 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 layers of detail for unbeatable distribution efficiency to consumers.
