Beamr teams with NVIDIA to accelerate Beamr technology on NVIDIA GPUs
Nvidia is working with video technology developer Beamr to bring GPU acceleration to Beamr’s video bitrate optimizers. The use of GPU power is said to lead to a 10X faster processing speed and works on AVC, HEVC and AV1 content up to 8K HDR quality. The project has taken two years to come to fruition. Beamr also said that it plans to offer its technology on a cloud-based ‘Software-as-a-Service SaaS’ exploiting Nvidia GPUs.
