Madrid(02 Aug 2018)
Epic Labs (www.epiclabs.io), a proud member of the DASH Industry Forum and Digital Production Partnership (DPP), is pleased to announce its presence at IBC 2018 introducing a new QoE enhancer media platform known as LightFlow.
LightFlow is an easy-to-use service that enables an enhanced user experience by leveraging advanced encoding techniques using machine learning techniques. LightFlow also introduces ultrafast (real-time) encoding and cognitive services to optimize video streams bringing the best quality of experience for customers. It works either for VoD (file-based) and live streams on DASH and HLS on any device player.
LightFlow improves media through proprietary Machine Learning algorithms that analyse content providing the best video quality at a lower bitrate by generating an optimal ABR ladder and encoding profiles. Some of the benefits are: minimize rebuffering events, improve video start time (VST), exit before video starts (EBVS) and reduce video start failures (VSF) achieving a best-in-class stream that flows perfectly over any internet connection.
A more efficient use of video bandwidth means a lower cost for storage and improving CDN performance while reducing transcoding costs.
LightFlow can be easily integrated on any OTT or live TV Channel workflow by consuming a light and intuitive API and an architecture that allows multiple deployment models (SaaS, on-prem, cloud, hybrid).
Customers will get an enhanced QoE, better user engagement and user retention by offering a TV-Like experience.
- LightFlow main features:
- Per title smart encoding.
- Per scene smart encoding.
- Live smart encoding.
- Low-Latency smart encoding.
- Advanced media cognitive services: face recognition, auto-clipping, enriched archiving, contextual advertising and content moderation.
- LightFlow can be deployed on any media workflow and any existing infrastructure either on-premises or on any cloud provider. Epic Labs can also provide the encoding, storage and delivery for any workflow. LightFlow enables a 100% out-of-the-box solution to fit on any workflow or requirement.
Alfonso Peletier, Epic Labs CEO and Founder: “We have identified a raising demand of OTT providers and broadcasters to improve viewers’ experience: a great image quality and a lighter stream that loads up fast, with no rebuffering events no matter the network condition or device brand. At Epic Labs, we have put an incredible Team of media software engineers, encoding and machine learning experts to create LightFlow with the mission to boost viewers QoE while keeping media workflows costs at bay. We are proud to be at IBC, the best place to be when launching a new product like LightFlow and stay in close touch with decision makers from all over the world.”.
In addition to offer attendees the chance for a hands-on demonstration and in-depth information about LightFlow, Alfonso Peletier, Epic Labs CEO & Founder, will be part of the panel “Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: Status update” that will be held on Saturday 15th at 15:30 in the Hall 14 Content Everywhere Hub.
Epic Labs will be at stand A36 in Hall 14 at Amsterdam RAI. To schedule a meeting with Epic Labs at IBC 2018, please send an email to email@example.com or visit www.epiclabs.io
