Raystream announced that a free trial of its high definition (HD) video compression service is available to any business offering HD video content online.
The company proprietary video compression technology decreases the file size of HD videos – up to 90 percent, with an average of approximately 70 percent. Company officials said that there is no loss in the quality or crystal clarity for which the HD video is known.
For raw HD video files – such as those still in capture devices or stored on DVDs or Blu-ray discs – the company’s rate of compression is more dramatic; in fact, it is up to 10 times greater.
Raystream has reduced the file sizes to a “staggering degree” to provide huge bandwidth savings to HD video content providers. Company officials said that they have also created a superior online viewing experience for the consumer, which brings an end to buffering and stopping of the video during play.
And, for streaming previously recorded HD video files, the disruptive innovation from Raystream can be used by businesses. In addition, businesses can also use it for live streaming of HD video in real time and even for full HD 3D video.
Additionally, Raystream has also announced that an independent international property rights management law firm conducted a thorough investigation of their algorithm. Company officials said that the firm has issued an opinion letter verifying that all aspects of Raystream’s software and technology are in complete compliance with the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) held by the Free Software Foundation.
Built on the x264 encoder licensed by CoreCodec, Raystream’s compression algorithm is compliant with the worldwide standard format for video output. Company officials said that this allows for seamless integration of compressed videos into existing environments, and for standard video player support.
Raystream is a provider of proprietary video compression technology to businesses and consumers worldwide. Earlier in November, the company entered into a new partnership with Laterna Magica, a video advertising production company based in Germany and South Africa.
