Panasonic Introduces Smart Coding Technology to Reduce Bandwidth Demand

The new technology yields up to a 70% improvement in bandwidth reduction.

Panasonic introduces Smart Coding, a new technology that enhances the encoding algorithm in standard H.264 video streams, yielding up to a 70% improvement in bandwidth reduction.

The technology lessens the bandwidth demand and the amount of storage needed for surveillance video images while maintaining high picture quality and full compliance with the H.264 standard. It is available as an upgrade for all new generation Panasonic 3, 5 and 6 Series Models.

Smart Coding technology uses a variety of advanced noise reduction processes and algorithm advancements: Frequency Divided Filter (FDF), 3-D Multi-Process Noise Reduction (3D-MNR) and Group of Picture Control (GOP). Those advancements achieve a lower bit rate for images without degrading the captured and transmitted video stream, according to Panasonic.

FDF and 3D-MNR act to reduce both fine picture noise and video-grain generated under low illumination improving picture quality before compression. GOP Control removes unnecessary information in a scene which results in a lower bit rate.

These features combine to reduce bit rate in the recorded video without a loss in image quality.

Panasonic has its entire portfolio on display at ASIS 2015 at booth 3709 in Anaheim, Calif.
