BitSave is an AI-based perceptual preprocessing solution that allows conventional, third-party encoders to produce higher quality video at lower bitrate. BitSave preprocesses the video content before it reaches the video encoder, such that the output after compressing with any standard video codec is perceptually optimized with less motion artifacts or blurring, for the same or lower bitrate. BitSave is able to reduce bitrate requirements for a given quality level by up to 20% versus that encoder. When coupled with open-source AVC, HEVC and AV1 encoders, BitSave allows for up to 40% bitrate reduction at no quality compromise in comparison to leading third-party AVC, HEVC and AV1 encoding services. Lower bitrates equate to smaller file sizes, lower storage, transmission and distribution costs, reduced energy consumption and more satisfied customers. This results in substantial bandwidth, energy and cost savings for VoD and live streaming services, broadcasters and the end consumers.
- Simple Integration
BitSave pre-processes video content without changing the encoding; consequently these gains are attainable without any of the disadvantages associated with replacing components of encoders, streaming infrastructures, or client devices.
- Codec Independent
BitSave is compatible with any existing codec (including MPEG AVC/H.264, HEVC/H.265, EVC, VVC and AOMedia VP9, AV1, AV2), and supports all resolutions up to 8K. The preprocessing accepts all video formats as input and outputs.
iSIZE’s proprietary deep learning-based models can run on all CPU and GPU hardware. The current generation of BitSave models is able to run on 4 CPU cores or higher, achieving real-time preprocessing and AVC encoding on most cloud instances.
