Video Bandwidth Reduction (VBR)

Improves the customer’s viewing experience, increases network efficiency and offers new revenue opportunities by removing artifacts, noise, and other common entities that waste bandwidth.

The Experience

other technology
  • Significantly degrade the source video
  • Blur detail and texture
  • Reduce real resolution
  • Degrade color
  • Add motion blurring, motion echoes, and color banding
  • Frame by Frame
vbr technology
  • No degradation of the source video
  • The most accurate and precise motion estimation process in the industry (i.e., Optical Flow)
  • Significantly reduces file sizes, delivers results in real time, while maintaining visual quality
  • No color banding, loss of detail, or motion blurring
  • Pixel by Pixel
  • Works for all live linear and VoD content

Easily distinguishes actual image detail from noise

Random Noise

Actual Image Detail

VBR intelligently determines which is which and removes noise while leaving fine scene detail and texture alone

Easily distinguishes between real scene edges and compression artifacts

Compression artifact

Actual scene edge

Performs De-Banding and De-Blocking of videos without removing scene details

Upstream Ringing Artifacts


Encoding & Storage Savings

By using a sophisticated process based on patented algorithms, VBR selectively removes unwanted, unnecessary artifacts which only consume valuable bandwidth. By doing so, it allows an encoder to be more efficient and consume less space required for storage.
