Unlock the potential of higher resolution, richer detail, smoother motion and a wider range of colors. Don’t worry about old devices, LCEVC upgrades them all.
Because LCEVC enhances any codec, you can confidently stream LCEVC-enhanced videos now. Any device not yet updated for LCEVC will simply play as before.
V-Nova LCEVC Licensing Terms are now available for Entertainment Video Services.
The terms are the following:
V-Nova LCEVC license is free for integration. Device or chipset manufacturers, operating systems, browsers, in-house development and encoder/player vendors can all integrate for free.
V-Nova LCEVC license for usage is low-cost and based on service size (per-user licenses start from as little as $0.01 per year) and capped at $3.7 million.
V-Nova LCEVC licensing terms were designed together with customers and key industry players.
Enhancing streams with LCEVC allows for the delivery of UHD streams at bandwidth typically used for HD video. That’s because LCEVC can deliver better or equivalent quality at up to 40% lower bitrates. It also enables HDR 10-bit over 8-bit codecs such as h.264 or VP9.
LCEVC’s quick software upgrade will enable you to access larger audiences, engage them with a superior video experience, and retain them for longer:
Deliver the highest resolution and quality video to all devices to maximize customer engagement and satisfaction.
Satisfy the exponential increase in demand for video communication while keeping down costs, processing requirements, and complexity.
Effectively manage different codecs and workflows for different devices. Improve performance of legacy devices, quickly and without disrupting existing workflows.
Whether you operate a social media platform, a video calling application or a live sports service, there are common key challenges that impact the success of your product or service. LCEVC unlocks unique efficiency gains:
Broad device support
Roll-out to all clients or phase-in deployment as non-LCEVC players can still play the base codec.
With LCEVC, deployment is fast and easy on top of your existing systems. You do not need a new hardware implementation for it to work. Video quality enhancement will be visible from day one.
Our software development toolkit is already available as a software library for all major architectures, platforms, and operating systems.
LCEVC is the only way to deploy latest-generation codecs such as AV1 and VVC at scale by enabling you to address millions of devices that don’t have dedicated hardware support for these emerging codecs. LCEVC’s unique low-complexity design enables higher resolutions at sustainable battery consumption.
LCEVC produces higher quality, lower bitrate streams particularly suited for ultra-low latency conditions.
