Product Description

Beamr's perceptual quality measure was developed over seven years and is backed by 50 pending or granted patents that provide the bitrate reduction engine to our HEVC and H.264 software encoders and optimizers. Beamr Optimizer is ideal for any application where storage or bandwidth is at a premium, or where user experience can benefit from a bitrate reduction of up to 50%. The new Beamr 5x HEVC Encoder complements our Beamr 4 and Beamr 5 software encoders by combining a high-quality encoder with a perceptual quality driven optimization process that enables HEVC video at bitrates up to 50% less than the current state of the art.
