iSIZE Technologies graduates from inaugural Oxford CDL and raises 740k GBP from notable Silicon Valley angel and institutional investors Posted: 14/05/2020
iSIZE Technologies graduates from inaugural Oxford CDL and raises and pound;740k from notable Silicon Valley angel and institutional investors

Deep-tech company iSIZE Technologies has today announced the closure of its first seed funding round, raising a total of £740k from figures including Patrick Pichette, partner at Inovia Capital and ex- Google CFO; TD Veen AS, a notable Norwegian family office; and a number of other CDL investors. This round brings iSize total funding to date to over £1.3m.

The round was led by some of the leading tech investors of the inaugural Creative Destruction Lab programme at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School. iSIZE graduates the accelerator programme this month alongside only nine others, from over 250 applications, after an intensive nine-month programme.

iSIZE specialises in deep learning for video delivery and has developed a deep perceptual 'precoder' - a software solution that uses AI-trained to optimise visual quality in order to save video bitrate during encoding. Its flagship product, BitSave, available both as a SaaS platform at bitsave.tech and for on-premise use, reduces encoding bitrates by up to 40%, while at the same time enhancing video perceptual quality. This results in substantial data, energy and cost savings for both the company hosting the video and the end consumer.

iSize Technologies introducing BitSave v.2, the next-generation AI-powered Technology and SaaS Video Encoding Platform Posted: 16/03/2020
iSize Technologies to showcase BitSave v.2, the next-generation AI-powered Technology and SaaS Video Encoding Platform at NAB 2020

iSize Technologies, the London-based deep-tech company specializing in deep learning for video delivery, are introducing BitSave v.2, the next-generation ‘precoder’ for perceptual optimization of video content prior to subsequent encoding.

BitSave v.2 is a pixel-to-pixel neural-network solution that optimizes video frames before the pixels reach the video compression software according to the latest advances in perceptual quality metrics. It enhances details of the areas of each frame that affect the perceptual quality score of the content after encoding and attenuates details that are not important.

This is designed to optimally balance perceptual quality against encoding bitrate. The solution is data-driven, trained on large image and video datasets, with no hand-crafted parameters.

It incurs a single-frame latency, can be used with any third-party video encoder with no changes in the encoding pipeline, and can run in real-time for up to 4K resolution.
