AOMedia Video 1 (AV1), backed by industry giants like Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, is an emerging video format known for its efficiency.

However, its adoption faces hurdles due to the complex and costly process of upgrading existing video libraries, especially in burgeoning markets such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, streaming, and user-generated content. Today, Beamr and NVIDIA will unveil a proposed solution to address this challenge at the ACM Mile-High-Video 2024 conference.

The joint research aims to spotlight the collaboration between Beamr and NVIDIA in facilitating the widespread adoption of AV1.

They will outline an automated process to migrate video libraries and repositories to the new format, ensuring video quality optimization while utilizing NVIDIA’s hardware. This collaborative effort marks a significant step towards addressing the obstacles hindering the broader adoption of AV1 in the evolving landscape of digital media.
