In yet another deal for the encoding and playout engine provider, V-Nova is to enter into a strategic partnership with broadcast IT system architect Qvest Media.

Specialising in the television, media and telecommunications industries, Qvest Media offers expertise in the design, development, implementation and operational support of media technology infrastructures. Under the terms of the deal Qvest will integrate into its own systems the PERSEUS V-Nova video and image processing unit. The system is claimed to offer 'unprecedented' bandwidth savings, delivering Ultra HD video at HD bitrates, HD at SD bitrates, and SD at sub-audio bitrates.

"With PERSEUS, V-Nova meets the challenge of constantly increasing amounts of data and ever higher data rates," said Qvest Media managing director Daniel Url.

"During the first review of the technical information about PERSEUS, we were very curious. Because until now it had been virtually impossible to demand a low bit rate, very low latency and, at the same time, high image quality from a codec. However, a live demo and subsequent technical analysis have completely convinced us. In our opinion, PERSEUS is an obvious pioneer in codec and compression technology."
