iSIZE, a specialist in deep learning for video delivery, today announces that it has joined the AWS Partner Network (APN), the global community of businesses using Amazon Web Services (AWS) to build solutions and services for customers.
In addition to joining the APN, iSIZE has completed an AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR) of its award-winning, patented BitSave deep psychovisual pre-processing technology. BitSave pre-processes the input video prior to encoding and removes imperceptible information that is costly to encode by all existing video encoders. It delivers greater efficiency over the non-preprocessed content encoding, i.e., 15%-25% bitrate and energy savings over the utilized encoder, verified by standard quality metrics (VMAF, SSIM, etc.) that are widely used in the industry. FTR enables AWS Partners to identify and remediate risks in products or solutions. The FTR is led by an AWS Partner Solutions Architect (PSA) who reviews AWS Partner products and solutions against a specific set of requirements based on the Security, Reliability, and Operational Excellence pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework.
iSIZE CEO Sergio Grce commented, “We are delighted to join the AWS Partner Network. By being a part of the APN, we can enable our customers to maximise existing technology investments, benefit from greater efficiencies when processing video streams, and provide better video streaming experiences to millions of users worldwide.”
Using iSIZE’s technology prior to conventional encoding makes encoding significantly more efficient in terms of bitrate saving at the same or improved visual quality. An encoder agnostic solution, BitSave also allows for the encoder to be used with simpler encoding recipes, thereby making it faster, saving datacenter cost and significantly improving the sustainability of video streaming. It requires no changes to the encoding, delivery or decoding devices.
