In addition to the virtual exhibitions, we also offered a webinar on "AI-Powered Encoding & Optimized Streaming". The live demo and talk offered comprehensive insights in the latest developments of our Deep Encode Solution.
AI-Powered Per-scene Live Encoding
Video streaming content differs in terms of complexity and requires specific encoding settings in order to achieve a certain visual quality. The FAMIUM Deep Encode solution leverages machine learning techniques to avoid test encodes and enables per-scene encoding for live linear content. It automatically predicts video quality metrics like PSNR, SSIM and VMAF, detects complex metadata like scene changes, and performs object classification and labeling for each video. Thus, FAMIUM Deep Encode provides the optimal encoding ladder for your applications and services.
Stream Analytics (SAND)
FAMIUM SAND is a streaming analytics solution for online video streaming. The SANDLibrary is a plug-in for video players, such as dash.js, exoPlayer or hls.js. The SANDServer includes a Web interface to analyze cross-platform streaming analytics, featuring real-time metric reporting to monitor player performance information like average throughput, buffer level and representation switch events. The FAMIUM SAND also enables shared resource allocation, which facilitates fair bandwidth sharing of multiple DASH clients competing for bandwidth in the same network.
