NTT Data integrates V-Nova’s Perseus

IT services provider NTT Data has integrated compression specialist V-Nova’s Perseus technology into its portfolio of video encoding solutions.

The currently deployed joint solution adds Perseus capabilities to NTT Data Hyper and NRT products.

V-Nova’s Perseus is a video compression technology that claims to enable operators to provide otherwise undeliverable services using existing infrastructure, hardware and workflows.  The company says the codec is based on principles underlying human vision to deliver significant and simultaneous improvements in compression, picture quality, processing speed, latency and power consumption.  Perseus enables UHD quality video at HD bitrates, HD at SD bitrates, and SD video at sub-audio bitrates, according to V-Nova.

 NTT Data Hyper is software for automated batch video transcoding for OTT VoD services up to UHD/4K.  It enables the creation of optimized encoding pipelines, leveraging features such as adaptive encoding techniques, grid computing architecture and intelligent Cloud Encoding.

“Partnering with NTT Data to bring Perseus benefits to its customers opens a new chapter in V-Nova’s journey. NTT DATA’s integration highlights the many benefits PERSEUS offers, beyond compression performance. With a simple software update, NTT DATA solutions can now offer OTT and VoD operators a real ‘game changer’, including the ability to extend their service reach by 10 times,” said Guido Meardi, V-Nova CEO and co-founder.

“As a global IT innovator, NTT DATA is proud to lead in responding to market demand for integration of Perseus compression technology. The combination of Perseus video compression with the flexibility and performance of NTT DATA encoding solutions offers our customers a winning combination for their VoD and OTT services,” stated Nadia Governo, head of telco and media NTT Data Italia.
