A view on VP9 and AV1 part 1: specifications Introduction The success of a video coding standard depends on many factors. Many articles try to benchmark the performance of codec implementations or make comments about the ecosystem of codecs. But I … Continue reading →

In the previous post of this 2 parts series, I have analyzed the technical features of the codec VP9 and concluded that, technically speaking, VP9 has the basis to compete with HEVC in terms of encoding efficiency. But, you know, theory is a different thing than reality and in video encoding a big part of the…
A technical primer VP9 is a modern video codec developed by Google as the successor of VP8. While VP8 was aimed at offering an open alternative di AVC (aka H.264), VP9 challenges the latest HEVC (aka H.265).

Expway, the wireless multicast leader, presented today at Mobile World Congress FastLane, a new Content Delivery Network (CDN) solution with a unique approach to optimizing mobile content delivery. The solution focuses on optimizing the link from the network cell to the devices using LTE Broadcast, Multicast Dynamic Switching and pre-emptive caching.
At the Mobile World Congress Akamai booth (3B30), Expway and Akamai will demonstrate how switching from unicast to multicast using Expway FastLane helps avoid traffic peaks and reduce network bandwidth.
The Huawei – booth (1J50), will showcase how user experience quality can be monitored using FastLane, and the Expway – booth (8.0J40), will reveal what a high-quality HD video user experience looks like with FastLane.
FastLane uses LTE Broadcast, a 3GPP feature available in any recent LTE network, to deliver the content once, to a thousand users or more, leading to enormous bandwidth savings for the delivery of popular content. FastLane is a true end-to end Mobile CDN and includes all components necessary to deliver true LTE Broadcast. It is composed of Expway’s proven products, namely its BMSC, BPM and Device Middleware, already deployed by tier one operators and device makers worldwide, and a new product called the Device Agent.
