MENA-based multi-platform entertainment specialist Selevision has announced the launch of its new codec, aptly named ‘Nukodec’.
The announcement was made at the TV Connect industry awards in London this week, where Selevision was shortlisted in the ‘Best Multiscreen TV Service’ category.
Designed to replace the H.264 and H.265/HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) codecs currently in use by the industry, the new technology will be made available to industry players across the globe, allowing them to migrate into an advanced HEVC algorithm engineered by Selevision.
“As a technology and content provider, we are constantly innovating behind the scenes to develop products and services that improve access to content,” explains Dr. Raed Khusheim, CEO of Selevision. “Our Nukodec algorithm enables access to Full HD quality content at a lower bandwidth, which is particularly significant for those living in areas, often remote, where telecommunications services are limited. The benefits of switching to our new code include faster content delivery, cost savings and increasing storage capacity, making the switch a no-brainer.”
