Ottawa, July 23, 2008 ...   the opportunity relates to a GeorgiaTech-Venture Lab company currently funded by grants that specializes in the deployment of video quality measurement and video enhancement solutions. It provides accurate estimates and diagnostics of video quality: both in a global fashion (Mean Time Between Failures/Artifacts or MOS scores) and in granular detail (nature and strength of compression and network artifacts).

In spite of being a no-reference measure that does not need a comparison to the source video, its video quality metric, termed AVQ, has been shown to have a strong correlation with actual subjective scores, with these correlations approaching or exceeding the performance of full- and reduced- reference metrics. The no-reference feature, together with scalable computing, permits the use of AVQ in any part of the video distribution chain.


The company is currently testing a real-time beta product with leading players in the video distribution industry in the US. It is also interested in strategic alliances with companies in Canada that specialize in video content creation, aggregation, and distribution.
