(Oregon - March 22, 2016)
- At NAB 2016 in Las Vegas, isovideo will showcase its latest NVIDIA GPU-accelerated,
cinema quality, on-the-fly Viarte server clusters, which can seamlessly digitally
convert/transform/remaster/encode a wide variety of media content, including SD to UHD,
interlaced/progressive, HFR, HDR/WCG, PQ (SMPTE ST 2084) and HLG, etc. with highest
precision computational pipeline (16-bit I/O and 32-bit internal float-point processing),
and with concurrent multi-format configuration and output.
In particular, isovideo will be demonstrating its latest Viarte motion-compensated (MC) HDR/SDR noise reduction, which has made another substantial advancement, primarily due to improved motion and robust noise modelling. For example on HDR test material, at 50dB PSNR, the bit-rate reduction is over 80%, dropping to 65% at 45dB on average. The PSNR gain at 3Mbps or higher is over 3.5dB. In general, the latest processing bests the previous version by 1-3dB, reducing HEVC/AVC bit-rates by 50% on average, and up to 5x on lower CQP values, while maintaining very subtle details and sharpness.
Benefits and Applications of MC Noise Reduction:
Features and Advancements in MC FRC and Deinterlacing:
The latest Viarte MC processing can readily handle HDR material to the high precision required. Viarte any-to-any MC frame-rate conversion offers particularly highly accurate conversion for HFR, and with stunning quality for HDR with HFR. It also provides additional features:
Viarte MC deinterlacing (with 100% vertical output resolution, and imperceptible flicker), and
sophisticated inverse telecine, when used in conjunction with MC noise reduction
offers unmatched image quality with significant HEVC/AVC bit-rate reductions.
This enables content owners to repurpose valuable interlaced content to Blu-ray and OTT, while saving significant bandwidth.
Award and Film Applications:
Viarte was one of five winners of the prestigious Game-Changer Awards by the IABM/NAB 2013. Viarte technology has been used in numerous films and digital remastering applications, including "Made in America" by Academy-Award winner Ron Howard, and the newly released "Daze of Justice" documentary (world premiered on March 12, 2016), etc.
Advantages and Application of On-the-fly Viarte Server Clusters:
Viarte server cluster processing gets a near-linear boost in throughput with the number of servers, leveraging isovideo's proprietary, efficient and scalable splitting technology. It enables
