Beamr Imaging Ltd. Software Codec Development AMD EPYC 7742 Product Brief





Beamr Imaging started in 2009 by the serial entrepreneur Sharon Carmel who has two previous startup exits to his credit including a digital graphics and imaging technology company that rocketed to a $7 billion valuation on the London stock exchange, and a cloud synchronization company acquired by Phoenix Technologies. Beamr maintains offices around the world in Tel Aviv Israel, St. Petersburg Russia, and Palo Alto California. This guarantees the highest level of support for our enterprise clients, cable companies, satellite distributors, online video distributors, and online-video platforms expect.

Beamr products are known for enabling as much as a 35% network reclamation by reducing video files as much as 50% with Beamr 4x and Beamr 5x H.264 and HEVC CABR enabled content-adaptive encoders. Beamr provides the best video quality at the lowest bitrate for mobile operators and public networks and managed service platforms seeking to reduce video bandwidth utilization on the network backbone and edge.

Beamr's perceptual quality measure is built on a proprietary, low complexity, highly reliable, perceptually aligned quality metric that is covered by thirty-three International patents. The existence of this unique quality measure enables controlling a video encoder to obtain an output clip with maximal compression of the video input while maintaining the input video resolution, format and visual quality. This feat occurs by controlling the compression level of each frame in the video sequence so that it is compressed to the maximum while producing a perceptually identical output.

The Beamr quality measure has been in development since 2009. After extensive refinement, and subjecting it to the strict requirements and testing of ITU BT.500 which is an International standard for verifying and testing image quality, we were able to confirm that there is a sufficiently high correlation of our quality measure with human viewing results. The Beamr quality measure takes into account temporal artifacts. Since it is not sufficient to ensure only at the frame level that degradation has not been introduced - it is also necessary to preserve the quality of the video's temporal flow. When viewing a video encoded using the VBR rate-control and a video encoded with the CABR rate-control side-by-side, they will be perceptually identical to the human eye under normal viewing conditions. This is a secret to how the process is able to guarantee image quality.

Continuing the rich legacy of innovation, Beamr showcased at NAB 2019 CABR accelerated with silicon by showing integration with the Intel Media SDK. Silicon accelerated CABR allows Beamr to complete our original vision of optimizing the network and bringing newfound bandwidth savings. The Beamr CABR SDK enables video engineers to utilize the efficiency of silicon encoders so that they can create massively scalable click here consumer device, cloud, and edge encoding solutions which balance encoder density and performance, with bitrate efficiency.
