Bitmovin, a global leader in online streaming video technology has been honored with a Technology & Engineering Emmy® Award by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS). Bitmovin demonstrated how its use of machine-learning and optimization techniques have contributed to the "Development of Massive Processing Optimized Compression Technologies."
Bitmovin continues to be a leader in the research and development of actual perceptual quality metrics standards. The metrics are used to emulate the human perceptual system and leverage the information to maximize the efficiency of video encoding parameters. Bitmovin customers such as the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and Hulu Japan, are actively working to implement perceptual quality metrics with the Bitmovin Encoder product and its per-title encoding capabilities.
"Bitmovin is extremely honored to receive an Emmy® Award for our technical contributions to the booming area of online video streaming," said Stefan Lederer, CEO and co-founder Bitmovin. "Since we founded Bitmovin, our mission has been to help the transformation of video consumption towards online streaming using technology, and in particular improve the industry's viewing experience with the most advanced encoding technology developed by our R&D team.
