With mass adoption of many OTT services, consumers are becoming increasingly intolerant of compression artifacts and buffering in their videos. Indeed, they expect “first-screen video quality” at all times, on all devices. With 4K finally arriving and 8K just around the corner, the future of content delivery could hinge on innovative compression techniques. Enter Harmonic and their amazing EyeQ real-time video optimization solution. Leveraging what they call the “Human Visual System” to drive its compression scheme, the company has enabled superior video quality at half the bandwidth, delighting consumers and saving bandwidth for providers.
