Beamr unveils new video compression technology

Beamr has unveiled Beamr Video, a re-compression algorithm, which is said to be able to reduce the bitrate of H.264 video streams by up to 75%.

The system is capable of supporting any resolution up to 4K Ultra HD, and streams processed by Beamr’s patent-pending technology retain the resolution, perceptual quality and H.264 standard format of the original.
Streams recompressed using Beamr can be played using any media player or browser and device without the need for special plugins or software. It can enable the delivery of higher quality video over low bandwidth channels to fixed and mobile destination.
