VBrick Systems has announced that its real-time video compression technology has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 7,751,482, which recognizes VBrick’s encoding algorithms used during the compression of streaming video.
The issue faced when compressing streaming video is how to best optimize the quality of the final image given its real-time nature. In a typical real-time encoder, there is limited CPU power to efficiently compress incoming video streams. VBrick’s patented technology, which specifically addresses the challenge of motion estimation, supports the delivery of high quality video (up to 1080p) while minimizing delay. Motion estimation is the most challenging and compute-intensive aspect of the H.264 algorithm.??
This patented technology powers VBrick’s integrated suite of H.264 solutions for the creation, delivery and consumption of live or on-demand IP video streaming for enterprise customers.
