Video compression specialist V-Nova’s PERSEUS technology has been successfully deployed by Mediapro’s Overon for the November 21 “El Clásico” match between Real Madrid and Barcelona.
PERSEUS is based on the principles underlying human vision to deliver improvements in compression, picture quality, processing speed, latency and power consumption. PERSEUS shifts the entire video bitrate-quality curve to enable UHD quality video at HD bitrates, HD at SD bitrates, and SD video at sub-audio bitrates.
The Mediapro managed project saw Ultra HD live footage encoded at the stadium by a V-Nova PERSEUS-powered “P.Link” solution and contributed visually lossless content with ultra low latency at 240 Mbps over a 1 Gbps telco fiber connection to the Movistar Master Control Room (MCR) in Madrid. At the MCR, a “P.Link” server decoded the signal, which was then distributed to Canal+ Liga viewers in Spain.
