Beamr Launches Beamr Video 2.0 for Improved User Experience and Efficiency in Video Optimization

TEL AVIV, Israel–()–Beamr (, an
imaging technology company that powers some of the world’s top web
publishers, social networks and media companies, today announced the
launch of Beamr Video 2.0, an updated video optimization solution for
enhancing user experience and reducing video delivery costs.

Launched at IBC 2013, Beamr Video automatically reduces the bitrate of
any H.264 or HEVC video stream by up to fifty percent, enabling a
smoother streaming experience with reduced buffering and a faster stream
start. Using a patent-pending perceptual quality measure, the process
results in increased monetization, longer viewing times, and cost
savings in both delivery and storage without any change to the
perceptual quality or format of the original stream. Just one year after
its initial launch, Beamr Video 2.0 now offers a web dashboard for easy
monitoring and control of the video optimization process, as well as
multi-core processing capabilities for maximum performance and a shorter
turn around time. For more information about Beamr Video 2.0, visit

The new web-based user interface provides easy access for controlling
and monitoring Beamr Video optimization from any web browser, and
enables users to create and manage each new or existing video
optimization job. With the dashboard, users can view statistics in real
time about the overall and average bitrate savings across all
jobs—including the progress and optimization parameters used for each
job as well as the system resource utilization for CPU and memory.

“We are very proud that after four years of extensive research and
development, Beamr Video has proven itself as the leading video
optimization solution, cutting bitrate by up to 50 percent to result in
the highest quality videos streaming as quickly as possible,” said
Sharon Carmel, CEO of Beamr. “With our latest product, we are taking
that to the next level by adding more power and usability to enable
enterprises of all sizes to save time, money and bandwidth with video
optimization. Our customers are going to be very pleased with what the
new tool has to offer.”

In addition to the updated user interface, Beamr Video 2.0 now includes
multi-core processing capabilities, which will enable the most efficient
usage of computing resources. Once a user selects the number of cores
allocated for processing, the tool divides the video file into multiple
segments and processes them in tandem on different cores, ensuring the
maximum performance and fastest turn-around times for a user’s video
optimization jobs. Once the optimization is complete, Beamr Video 2.0
“stitches” the segments back together to create the output file.

“With the updated user interface, we are giving Beamr Video users a way
to manage all their video optimization jobs as efficiently and
intuitively as possible” Carmel added. “While the product continues to
enable the fastest high-quality streaming without producing any visual
artifacts, we have refined our tool even further, enabling maximum
computing performance and fast turn-around times for heavy duty
optimization tasks.”

The Beamr Video 2.0 announcement was made at the 2014 International
Broadcasting Conference. To learn more about Beamr Video 2.0 at IBC,
