Beamr is a global video software technology leader in H.264 and HEVC encoding and optimization solutions. The company was founded in 2009 by a team of leading image science experts and is backed by Verizon, Disruptive, and Eric Schmidt's fund, Innovation Endeavors. Beamr has more than 80 employees located in Palo Alto California, Tel Aviv Israel, and St. Petersburg Russia. Hollywood studios, MSO's, and some of the world's largest OTT distributors use Beamr technologies to ensure reliable delivery of maximum video quality, while reducing delivery costs, improving user experience, and lowering the TCO of cDVR, VOD and TVE systems. Beamr software is available across a broad range of platforms including cloud and on-premises installations, we have received 36 granted patents with more than two dozen still pending, for the industrys first fully content-adaptive perceptual optimization process that reduces the bitrate of video streams and files up to 50% without compromising quality. Key company milestones include the 2016 acquisition of Vanguard Video, a move which allowed Beamr to extend our perceptual quality measure into the heart of the video encoder. And as a result, achieve a further 20-40% bitrate efficiency over the savings HEVC delivers. While in 2018, Beamr extended the product line to include a novel virtualized video transcoder that is light weight and flexible, perfect for containerized (virtual) architectures. Beamr Transcoder VOD was awarded by Streaming Media the 'Best of NAB 2018' award. Beamr's unique technology has also been commercialized for use with photos, and is being used by leading photo sharing websites, new media portals, social networks, e-commerce sites, and professional photographers to reduce the size of images by 50% or more. Benefits include reduced storage cost, faster page load times and simpler workflow management. Learn more at - https://beamr.com
