“The TV industry is facing unprecedented challenges as consumer expectations for high quality video constantly increase across any network to any device. TV Connect gives us a great platform to demonstrate the benefits and opportunities that PERSEUS has to offer Telcos and OTT service providers as they battle to fulfil customers’ demands, and solve fundamental problems around bandwidth and infrastructural limitations,” said Guido Meardi, V-Nova CEO & Co-founder. “The rapid deployment of PERSEUS on Wyplay solutions for the benefit of all Wyplay customers demonstrates the market-readiness and ease of adoption of our technology.”

Visitors to TV Connect can see live demonstrations of integrated PERSEUS products at:

  • Wyplay (Stand: MR32) will be showing currently implemented pay-TV technology on which PERSEUS has been integrated with its Frog Client middleware.

In the wake of a very successful NAB debut – where PERSEUS-powered products won the coveted “Best of Show” award – V-Nova brings its technology to TV Connect with an ever-growing consortium of leading industry partners.

“Dell OEM Solutions provides the infrastructure backbone and enables faster time to market for thousands of customers like V-Nova that are developing products and services that have the potential to revolutionise and make impactful changes for their own customers across developed and emerging markets. With V-Nova’s PERSEUS video compression solution, customers in a variety of industries can create, use, transfer and store dynamic video content with low latency while maintaining high quality,” states Dermot O’Connell, Executive Director and General Manager, Dell OEM Solutions EMEA.

We are delighted to partner with V-Nova in this significant area, leveraging its new and innovative encoding technology. Our customers will seize tangible benefits as reducing drastically the bandwidth required for UHD video contribution and distribution, and making SD videos deliverable also through low bitrate networks”
