InterDigital Demonstrates User Aware Video at International Broadcasting Convention

WILMINGTON, Del. and AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, Sept. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterDigital (Nasdaq:IDCC), a research and development company, will be demonstrating its Perceptual Pre-Processing and User Adaptive Video streaming solutions during the 2014 International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) September 12 – 16 in Amsterdam (Hall 14, Stand 14.D24).

During the conference, InterDigital will demonstrate how its technologies address bandwidth constraints for Pay TV and Over-the-Top (OTT) content publishers, utilizing solutions residing in the encoding workflow and solutions residing in mobile devices, to optimize content delivery based on the end user environments. The company will exhibit the no-compromise visual experience of bandwidth savings with a side-by-side comparison of two complex 4K video clips, challenging viewers to identify the original content versus the reduced bit-rate version benefitting from InterDigital's technology.

"IBC attendees are engaged in creating, managing and delivering the future of electronic media and entertainment technology and content, making it the perfect venue to showcase our video streaming solutions," said Bill Crean, Director of Product Management, InterDigital Solutions. "InterDigital works closely with TV service providers and OTT content providers to help them proactively address bandwidth management issues, without sacrificing the video quality consumers have come to expect."

Before the encoding process, Perceptual Pre-Processing proactively filters out parts of visual content that the human eye cannot see. By optimizing the encoding workflow, InterDigital's technology delivers equivalent perceived quality while reducing bit rates and delivering up to 60 percent bandwidth savings. The benefits of Perceptual Pre-Processing apply to HD and Ultra HD (4K) content, for televisions and mobile devices, enabling content publishers to mitigate the effects of bandwidth constraints across multiple platforms.

In addition to the benefits offered by Perceptual Pre-Processing, InterDigital's User Adaptive Video solution extends streaming advantages by empowering Over-The-Top (OTT) content publishers to address bandwidth constraints from within mobile applications. User Adaptive Video monitors and adjusts video streaming rates based on user behavior and environmental factors, which impact visual perception to decrease bandwidth usage without sacrificing visual quality.
