WAKEFIELD, Mass. â The Alliance for Open Media (AOMedia) announced that iSIZE, a company with codec-independent AI technology that reduces bandwidth usage and improves the video experience, has joined the organization at promoter level.
As a member of the Alliance, iSIZE will work with members of AOMedia, the leading Internet and multimedia technology companies, to advance open standards for multimedia compression and streaming on the Web while promoting the adoption of the Internet. ‘hardware video encoding, the group said.

iSIZE specializes in deep learning for smart and sustainable video delivery. Its proprietary Deep Perception Optimizer uses AI trained to âsee with the human eyeâ to optimize video quality, and it offers significant bitrate savings for all video encoding standards, including AV1.
Thanks to AV1’s improved data compression over existing standards, fewer bits need to be streamed to achieve high visual quality levels and a better user experience. ISIZE’s BitSave AI preprocessor solutions can be used in tandem with any VP9 or AV1 encoder to enhance the quality of VP9 or AV1 video on client devices without requiring modification on streaming or decoding devices.
