Video compression solutions provider V-Nova and adaptive and intelligent computing company Xilinx have announced the availability of new video encoding solutions.

VNOVA Xilinx 21March 2019The new products comprise PERSEUS XSA, a deployable plug-and-play encoding accelerator for existing live or VOD encoding pipelines and PERSEUS XDE, a native encoding solution running entirely on FPGA. Both solutions are available for Xilinx’s Alveo cards and are claimed to deliver no less than ‘unparalleled’ video quality and processing density in private or public clouds.

Xilinx Alveo Data Centre accelerator cards are designed to meet the changing needs of the modern data centre, providing up to 90x performance increase over CPUs for common workloads, including machine learning, video transcoding, and database search and analytics. Xilinx FPGA platforms are broadly deployed across leading cloud platforms including AWS, Alibaba Cloud and Huawei as well as video service providers like Twitch.

“The extreme processing capabilities of our FPGA solutions only matter when paired with IP that can truly leverage it,” said Sean Gardner, senior marketing manager, Cloud Video, Xilinx. “PERSEUS Plus is the perfect example of that, and we’re excited about the potential this solution has to deliver a higher-quality video experience to millions of users whilst saving millions for the operators serving them. For services delivering thousands of streams a day these savings are transformative.”

Added V-Nova CEO and co-founder Guido Meardi: “We are really proud to announce the availability of PERSEUS XSA and PERSEUS XDE. The explosion of streaming services across the globe requires the best efficiencies in every part of the delivery chain. The combination of our PERSEUS Plus technology and Xilinx FPGA simply enables best quality video per bit, in the most cost-efficient way. This is valuable to all service providers and especially those that are looking to scale on cloud platforms, where the combination of V-Nova PERSEUS Plus and Xilinx FPGAs is ready to provide this step-change in the video quality and processing cost trade-off that can redefine the bottom line for video service operators.”
