Coming Soon - Back to the Future of Video Compression

Have you ever seen pixilation or noticed face details disappear, frames freeze, confetti in dark areas, or simply muddy video? These are negative effects of compression. Most camera outputs (including cinema) and videos from 720p and up are compressed. Why? Compression is needed to enable transport over ethernet, internet, Wi-Fi, cable, and satellite. It’s also needed to limit storage size. These restrictions have been met in part by compromises in image quality, increased latency, introduction of artifacts, and obliteration of fine details.
