Compression specialists, V-Nova, have announced a new 4K-shrinking technology dubbed ‘Perseus’ at an event which was attended by over 20 large telecoms companies including Sky Italia, Intel, and the European Broadcasting Union. The new compression will allow three simultaneous 4K video streams over the average UK broadband speed.
4K video streams have a resolution of 3840 x 2160 which equates to over eight million pixels. For comparison, a “Full HD” 1920 x 1080 resolution stream which most of us are used to is four times smaller at just over two million pixels.
