IRT has successfully carried out first video quality tests of V-Nova’s PERSEUS video compression solution in Contribution applications.
The IRT evaluated the V-Nova’s technology against benchmarks set by JPEG2000 in Contribution and production codecs such as AVC Intra Class 100 and XAVC-Intra 100 at comparable bit-rates. The results, based on a mixture of objective and subjective evaluations, confirm a substantial improvement compared to JPEG2000 and a quality that challenges H.264-intra-based production codecs.
“The IRT has always been at the forefront of modern media and the technology innovations needed to move our industry forward. Testing PERSEUS is important to enable our broadcasting, media, communications-engineering and IT clients to have a quantitative basis to assess the potential of this new technology” says Dr. Rainer Schäfer, General Manager TV, IRT.
