VideoEdge, a leading online publication dedicated to content production and delivery, recently published, “Pre-processing Could Help Push 4K/8K Through Limited Pipeline,” featuring Mari Silbey’s coverage of the Vantrix announcement that its open transcoding platform now supports InterDigital’s PerceptFX.

PerceptFX works by filtering raw video, isolating and removing bits of data that are invisible to the human eye, quotes VideoEdge from the news analysis published by Sibley, senior editor Cable/Video at Light Reading. PerceptFX deals with the perceptual pre-processing then hands the content off to an encoder. Vantrix Media Platform, with support from PerceptFX, can be applied to offline video and live broadcasts.

In August 2015, PerceptFX and Vantrix debuted the solution in a live transcoding environment at Cable Labs Summer Conference. Later this week, the two companies will demonstrate the Vantrix Media Platform again at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam.
