Die Net­flix Part­ner-Firma, EYE IO, hat eine neue Ver­sion ihrer Enco­ding-Soft­ware ver­öf­fent­licht. Die neue Ver­sion soll so effi­zi­ent sein, das man Ultra HD/4K Videos über das Inter­net strea­men kann.

EYE IO LLC behaup­tet ihre neue H.264 Soft­wareen­co­die­rung arbei­tet 45 Pro­zent schnel­ler und redu­ziert die  Über­tra­gungs­bi­trate um 26 Pro­zent im Gegen­satz zur ers­ten Ver­sion der Soft­ware. Auch die Bild­qua­li­tät soll sich noch­mals ver­bes­sert haben.

Im fol­gen­den Jahr, soll auch der neue Codec-Stan­dard H.265 inte­griert wer­den, der noch effi­zi­en­ter arbei­ten soll als der „gepimpte“ H.264. Man kann davon aus­ge­hen das Net­flix sich früh genug für die „Ultra HDca­lypse*“ rüs­ten möchte – wenn sie denn kommt. (*Somit habe ich auch das Thema Welt­un­ter­gang ein­mal ange­spro­chen)

Das Ziel ist welt­weit HD-Inhalte über das Inter­net anzu­bie­ten“ sagt der Fir­men­chef Rodolfo Var­gas.

Net­flix ist einer der größ­ten Anbie­tern von „Video on Demand“ in den USA. Der Anbie­ter bie­tet seine Dieste auch in Europa und Asien an.

eyeIO Announ­ces Second Gene­ra­tion of Tech­no­logy – HD Video Over Inter­net for Audi­en­ces World­wide

New pro­duct suite achie­ves new levels for ultra-low-band­width Inter­net video – enab­ling deli­very of full HD 3D, Stu­dioHD, and UltraHD (4K Video)

PALO ALTO, CA – Decem­ber 20, 2012 – Eye IO, LLC (eyeIO) today unvei­led its second-gene­ra­tion tech­no­logy rai­sing the bar for Inter­net video qua­lity. Impro­ving pro­duc­tion speed and effi­ci­ency, the expan­ded pro­duct suite inclu­des Stu­dio HD, Full-HD 3D as well as UltraHD (4K video). eyeIO uti­li­zes a revo­lu­tio­nary, arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence approach to con­sis­tently deli­ver mar­ket stan­dard based high-qua­lity video. The next-gene­ra­tion eyeIO soft­ware suite builds on the bre­akth­rough tech­no­logy that was first unvei­led in Febru­ary 2012 and has been suc­cess­fully tested for inter­ope­ra­bi­lity on hund­reds of H.264 devices.

Com­pa­red to its first gene­ra­tion, eyeIO’s next gene­ra­tion of H.264 soft­ware encodes 45% fas­ter and redu­ces bitra­tes by an addi­tio­nal 26% while inte­gra­ting Stu­dio-level pro­files that improve video data on several fronts by more than 50%. eyeIO HDRes now pro­vi­des super-fast play­back and even clea­rer, cris­per images. eyeIO’s 3D suite is avail­able with MVC, frame-sequen­tial or frame-packing opti­ons for seam­less deploy­ment world­wide on con­nec­ted Smart 3D TVs and 3D-enab­led play­ers and con­so­les.

The eyeIO engine ope­ra­tes auto­ma­ti­cally and elas­ti­cally, locally or in the cloud, and redu­ces infra­struc­ture costs and ope­ra­tio­nal com­ple­xity while achie­ving a new level of pro­duc­tion sta­bi­lity. To date, more than 65 bil­lion video frames have been pro­du­ced with a record of zero soft­ware cras­hes. The suite comes with exten­sive indus­try-stan­dard APIs for easy, fle­xi­ble inte­gra­tion and a rich real-time reporting capa­bi­lity.

With today’s announ­ce­ment, eyeIO’s advan­ced capa­bi­li­ties extend to meet the gro­wing needs of HD video pro­vi­ders to increase their audi­ence reach, video deli­very effi­ci­ency, and pic­ture qua­lity while ulti­mately redu­cing cost.

Built to Hollywood’s 4K requi­re­ments, eyeIO Stu­dio­Res deli­vers UltraHD, stu­dio-grade H.264 videos (10 bit, 4:2:2 video, xvYCC). eyeIO Stu­dio­Res is avail­able for both package media and Inter­net strea­m­ing deli­very to bring no-com­pro­mise pic­tures to the next gene­ra­tion of 85″ and lar­ger UltraHD/4K screens.
• eyeIO.265. Brings eyeIO tech­no­logy to the com­ing H.265 HEVC ITU stan­dard and long-term indus­try efforts.
• eyeOS. The eyeIO video ope­ra­ting sys­tem. A supe­rior, true UNIX™ Ope­ra­ting Sys­tem fea­turing advan­ced ker­nel enhan­ce­ments achie­ving ultra-sta­bi­lity, bare-metal vir­tua­liza­t­ion per­for­mance, auto­ma­tic load-balan­cing trans­co­ding, clo­sed-envi­ron­ment secu­rity, elas­tic sca­la­bi­lity, and advan­ced 4K video pro­ces­sing inclu­ding native sup­port for the fort­h­co­m­ing Inter­ope­ra­ble Mas­ter For­mat (IMF). eyeOS will be avail­able in beta form for lar­ger ent­er­pri­ses in the spring of 2013.

Today, eyeIO deli­vers the future of tele­vi­sion and sets new bench­marks for qua­lity and band­width. We are exci­ted to offer these inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons to bring stun­ning HD tele­vi­sion to view­ers around the world.“ said Rodolfo Var­gas, CEO and CTO of eyeIO, „We are deli­ver­ing today what other tech­no­lo­gies pro­mise for tomor­row-without their asso­cia­ted costs or per­for­mance penal­ties, and more import­antly without com­pro­mi­sing inter­ope­ra­bi­lity with mil­li­ons of instal­led devices. Our goal is the best TV expe­ri­ence ever-anyw­here, any­time on any con­nec­ted device.“
