Who are they
V-Nova is a London-based IP and software company.
The company’s main goal is to improve data compression. Its innovative applications use AI and parallel processing for analytics, and video and image compression.
The financing was used to develop and accelerate the rollout of V-Nova’s video-compression software:
- MPEG-5 LCEVC is the only enhancement standard that improves video codec and addresses the entire video-distribution market. It boosts the quality of existing video services and enables new user experiences. MPEG-5 also improves video delivery to the end-user in a cost- and energy-efficient way.
- SMPTE VC-6 is a professional production codec that offers higher quality at faster speeds. Furthermore, VC-6 accelerates AI media indexing, supporting the next generation of intelligent media.
