The battle for codecs intensified and dominated the most-read content management articles along with cyber security and interviews with 21CF and Aljazeera executives.
IBC365 takes an in-depth look at an increasingly popular choice for acquisition, with new methods trading cumbersome, data heavy workflows for virtually identical image fidelity but at lower data rates and file sizes.
Alliance for Open Media spokesman Matt Frost on the rollout of AV1 and the creation of another delivery codec.
Read technical papers from Ateme, BBC R&D and Divideon lifting the lid on serious disquiet in the world of video compression and watch experts recent progress and predict future performance gains.
This paper presents background information on the state of video codec licensing and lays out a description of the XVC licensing framework, constructed to significantly improve the current video codec licensing situation.
This paper analyses the overall compression capabilities of these two emerging technologies with respect to HEVC, including objective and subjective performance evaluation and the associated encoding and decoding complexities.
Now that the specification is finalised, the Alliance for Open Media has set high expectations for AV1. The prospect of a royalty free alternative to HEVC has many industry supporters, particularly those addressing streaming applications for a standard that is optimised for OTT delivery.
The world of codecs will be one of the big talking points at IBC this month, as the industry weighs up a raft of new, more efficient video compression techniques like AV1, VVC and XVC.
From board games to board rooms, the rise of Melody Hildebrandt to Global Chief Information Security Officer at 21st Century Fox has come at a time of great change and heightened risk in the media landscape.
Metadata is crucial as an enabler of automated production and targeted content. Would a standard help?
Work on the standard mastering format for B2B content distribution across the digital landscape has been a long process, but a gathering of the leading cheerleaders for IMF at NAB in Las Vegas may indicate that consensus is closer than ever
IP connectivity and the cloud means that both the intellectual property and the infrastructure of broadcast and media companies is now at risk of cyber attack.
Some of the leading exponents of AV1 speak with IBC365 about the origins of AV1, the industry’s reaction to the codec, and how it is likely to evolve.
Belden’s decision to buy SAM and combine it with Grass Valley continues a long history of acquisitions for both companies, but what are the challenges in merging the firms and what does the deal mean for the wider industry?
Deep learning, metadata and digital transmission were among the research areas explored across the IBC2017 technical papers.
In the era of multiplatform delivery the ability to create many formats at speed is vital, but where does the cloud fit in a broadcaster’s transcoding strategy?
A replacement for the JPEG 2000 (J2K) block coder that offers exceptionally high throughput, with a small reduction in coding efficiency.
Video production is characterised by large data volumes, to ease intensive workflows a novel image and video codec called JPEG XS is currently standardised.
Improving the quality of service and efficiencies with higher resolution, HDR and WCG in online delivery, there is a need for advanced video compression standards.
This ”State of the Web” whitepaper from Bitmovin explores Digital Rights Management systems and supported devices in 2017.
If you want the values and benefits that the cloud can actually bring, your approach to thinking about it has to change, argues Greg Hoskin, managing director, EMEA and APAC, Signiant.
