Vantrix Enhances Open Trancoding Video Pipeline With Interdigital PerceptFX Perceptual Pre-Processor

Advanced Pre-Processor Raises Quality, Efficiency in Video Delivery

WILMINGTON, DEL. and MONTREAL, QC — InterDigital, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDCC), a wireless research and development company, and  Vantrix, a global provider of media optimization and delivery solutions to video service providers and mobile service providers, today announced that Vantrix’s open transcoding pipeline now supports InterDigital’s PerceptFX perceptual pre-processor technology, resulting in dramatic bandwidth savings for video delivery.

PerceptFX eliminates imperceptible image data in video compressed using H.264 and H.265, enabling 4K and other resolution video to be delivered at impressive bandwidth savings. For example, encoding 4K video for a normal viewing distance enabled ultra HD video of mixed content encoded at 15Mbps to be delivered at an average bitrate of 10.7Mbps, a 29 percent savings. With some content, bandwidth savings reached 50 percent vs. the unfiltered original, with a minimum 15 percent savings over traditional encoding solutions.

“Vantrix Media Platform offers an integrated, open virtualized transcoding solution,” said Jean Mayrand, CEO and president of Vantrix Corporation. “Our component-based architecture is open to third-party plug-ins, and with new support for InterDigital’s PerceptFX, we enable our customers to deliver even higher quality video at the lowest bitrates.”

“PerceptFX technology yields impressive bandwidth savings results over traditional compression technology”, said Jim Nolan, Executive Vice President, InterDigital Solutions. “Now that the Vantrix Media Platform supports PerceptFX, customers can take advantage of our industry-leading quality advancements enabling video bandwidth delivery savings up to 50 percent.”

Vantrix Media Platform is a software-defined video processing, optimization, caching and analytics platform deployed as a turnkey appliance for deployment on-premises or in the cloud. Built on OpenStack for virtualization, it offers a modular, pluggable and extensible architecture for video transcoding and optimizing media experiences via adaptive bitrate streaming for delivery to TVs, PCs and mobile devices.

InterDigital’s PerceptFX optimizes the video experience for the reality of human perception. PerceptFX provides a set of tools, perceptual pre-processor and artifact removal toolkit, to help content publishers improve their customers’ viewing experiences and reduce costs for content delivery and storage.

Vantrix and InterDigital will be demonstrating its Vantrix Media Platform showing live transcoding with improved quality efficiencies at the upcoming CableLabs Summer Conference in Keystone Colorado August 2-5, 2015, and the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam September 11-15, 2015.
