With Internet bandwidth demand doubling each year, broadcast media, IPTV, and new user-generated YouTube-style video are culprits exacerbating the problem. This is where and their new CodecSys offering can help reduce bandwidth for video applications by 50% or more, including High Definition (HD).

For the lay person, digital video is created with a video codec that encodes and compresses a stream of information. There are numerous codecs, each offering its own benefit and/or tradeoffs for visual or audio quality and file size.

Unlike traditional systems that force a single codec, CodecSys runs each frame of video past a collection of the codecs and determines which codec is best for that particular frame or series of frames. Exploiting attributes of multiple codecs, CodecSys can reduce bandwidth needs by 50-75%. Since it’s a software solution, new codecs can easily be incorporated into the system.

Broadcast International CEO Rod Tiede talks with Brad Baldwin about CodecSys and their recent demo with IBM at the 2007 IBC Expo in Amsterdam on the new BladeCenter QS20 “Cell Blade”.
