Reducing video data traffic to increase quality
Watching movies at home has come a long way since the glory days of the video stores and VHS tapes. Today’s videos are distributed over-the-top (OTT), making video streaming a major source of internet traffic. The OTT market is growing fast, driven mainly by Netflix and YouTube. But the surge in video streaming is mainly in developed countries. In the rest of the world, the situation is different. For instance, half of the world’s population still does not have internet access. In this context, the EU-funded ENHANCEplayer project aims to shrink the digital divide by decreasing video streaming traffic by 80 % while retaining video resolution and increasing quality. Specifically, it will leverage deep learning to automatically increase the resolution and quality of videos on consumer devices.
