Easy & Safe Codec Modernization with Beamr using Nvidia GPUs Following a decade where AVC/H.264 was the clear ruler of the video encoding world, the last years have seen many video coding options battling to conquer the video arena. For some insights on the race between modern coding standards you can check out our corresponding […]
The proliferation of AI-generated visual content is creating a new market for media optimization services, with companies like Beamr well positioned to help businesses optimize their video content for reduced storage, faster delivery, and better user experiences. We are living in a brave new world, where any image and video content we can imagine is […]
2023 is a very exciting year for Beamr. In February Beamr became a public company on NASDAQ:BMR on the premise of making our video optimization technology globally available as a SaaS. This month we are already announcing a second milestone for 2023: Release of the Nvidia driver that enables running our technology on the Nvidia […]
We are thrilled to share with you that Beamr has won the Seagate Lyve Innovator of the Year competition!
Receiving our 50th granted patent seemed like a good opportunity to reflect back on our IP journey, and share some lessons we learned along the way.
In this post we present the results of integrating CABR’s content-adaptive rate control with the libaom AV1 encoder. CABR can reduce AV1 bitrates by a further 25-40% without compromising perceptual quality.
In this blog post we present the results of a encoding a set of videos from YouTube’s UGC dataset with Beamr’s CABR technology.
Introduction There are several different video codecs available today for video streaming applications, and more will be released this year. This creates some confusion for video services who need to select their codec of choice for delivering content to their users at the best quality and lowest bitrate, also taking into account the encode compute […]
TL;DR Post COVID-19, the work from home trend will continue, and this will extend the pressure on the Internet from video traffic. Even with the EU Commissioner’s call for video services to reduce their traffic by 25%, as Internet traffic patterns shift from corporate networks to mobile, fixed wireless, and broadband networks, the need to […]
TL;DR: Beamr CABR operating with the Intel Media SDK hardware encoder powered by Intel GPUs is the perfect video encoding engine for cloud gaming services like Google Stadia. The Intel GPU hardware encoder reaches real-time performance with a power envelope that is 90% less than a CPU based software solution. When combined with Beamr CABR […]
