Euclid Discoveries Announces Video Compression Technology Advancements





BOSTON, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Euclid Discoveries announces that its EuclidVision video compression technology is now playable in any media player with a standard H.264 decoder.

With today's announcement, the company is able to provide EuclidVision video compression on H.264 codecs, which is the present state of the art for media players. "This is an exciting development in the commercialization of our technology," says Richard Wingard, Euclid CEO. "We now have the ability to enable part of our technology in today's encoding process, and to demonstrate compression and quality gains to media players with standard H.264 decoders.  While this was not our primary objective, this new development allows current video processing technology to take advantage of some of EuclidVision's advanced model-based techniques."

Initial testing results for this deployment have demonstrated bandwidth reductions of 5-20% for high motion, high complexity HD videos, the type of videos where EuclidVision's advanced model-based techniques perform best.  Another benefit of the EuclidVision technology is its ability to improve visual quality of high motion, high complexity videos without increasing bandwidth consumption.  The company is continuing to work on ways to deliver additional bandwidth reductions and visual quality improvements in this environment.

In the months to come, Euclid will continue to improve its H.264-based compression technology while also integrating EuclidVision algorithms within MPEG-2 and HEVC (H.265) compliant streams.  Together, this suite of capabilities will enable EuclidVision to enhance the video experience of users over a wide variety of devices and applications.  

The company is actively pursuing potential partners who can commercially benefit from these extended capabilities, and will be demonstrating its capabilities during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, January 8-10, 2013.

About Euclid Discoveries: Euclid Discoveries is a video technology development company focused on the delivery of HD video over constrained networks. For the past 12 years Euclid has been tackling this challenge and has invented an innovative technology that delivers significant benefits in video distribution.

The company's patented technology utilizes object modeling to deliver improved video compression with no loss of visual quality. Until now, the company's technology has been operating exclusively on a proprietary codec.  During the course of the company's research and development, it was discovered that certain components of the technology could operate entirely within the H.264 environment, delivering compression and video quality enhancements.
