eyeIO Announces Second Generation of Technology - HD Video Over Internet for Audiences Worldwide

Eye IO, LLC (eyeIO) today unveiled its second-generation technology raising the bar for Internet video quality. Improving production speed and efficiency, the expanded product suite includes Studio HD, Full-HD 3D as well as UltraHD (4K video). eyeIO utilizes a revolutionary, artificial intelligence approach to consistently deliver market standard based high-quality video. The next-generation eyeIO software suite builds on the breakthrough technology that was first unveiled in February 2012 and has been successfully tested for interoperability on hundreds of H.264 devices.

Compared to its first generation, eyeIO’s next generation of H.264 software encodes 45% faster and reduces bitrates by an additional 26% while integrating Studio-level profiles that improve video data on several fronts by more than 50%. eyeIO HDRes now provides super-fast playback and even clearer, crisper images. eyeIO’s 3D suite is available with MVC, frame-sequential or frame-packing options for seamless deployment worldwide on connected Smart 3D TVs and 3D-enabled players and consoles.

The eyeIO engine operates automatically and elastically, locally or in the cloud, and reduces infrastructure costs and operational complexity while achieving a new level of production stability. To date, more than 65 billion video frames have been produced with a record of zero software crashes. The suite comes with extensive industry-standard APIs for easy, flexible integration and a rich real-time reporting capability.

With today’s announcement, eyeIO’s advanced capabilities extend to meet the growing needs of HD video providers to increase their audience reach, video delivery efficiency, and picture quality while ultimately reducing cost.

  • eyeIO StudioRes. Built to Hollywood’s 4K requirements, eyeIO StudioRes delivers UltraHD, studio-grade H.264 videos (10 bit, 4:2:2 video, xvYCC). eyeIO StudioRes is available for both package media and Internet streaming delivery to bring no-compromise pictures to the next generation of 85” and larger UltraHD/4K screens.
  • eyeIO.265. Brings eyeIO technology to the coming H.265 HEVC ITU standard and long-term industry efforts.
  • eyeOS. The eyeIO video operating system. A superior, true UNIX™ Operating System featuring advanced kernel enhancements achieving ultra-stability, bare-metal virtualization performance, automatic load-balancing transcoding, closed-environment security, elastic scalability, and advanced 4K video processing including native support for the forthcoming Interoperable Master Format (IMF). eyeOS will be available in beta form for larger enterprises in the spring of 2013.

“Today, eyeIO delivers the future of television and sets new benchmarks for quality and bandwidth. We are excited to offer these innovative solutions to bring stunning HD television to viewers around the world,” said Rodolfo Vargas, CEO and CTO of eyeIO. “We are delivering today what other technologies promise for tomorrow—without their associated costs or performance penalties, and more importantly without compromising interoperability with millions of installed devices. Our goal is the best TV experience ever—anywhere, anytime on any connected device.”

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
