What is LightFlow?

LightFlow is a video platform that leverages the use of perceptual video quality metrics and machine learning algorithms to individually optimize the quality of each of your videos at the most effective bitrate. LightFlow can be easily integrated in any existing media publishing workflow.

How does LightFlow work?

LQI (LightFLow Quality Index): A metric for video quality

LightFlow uses a proprietary Machine Learning to make smart analysis of video content (per title or per scene), giving as result the best Quality-Bitrate performance. LightFlow introduces the concept of LQI, a video quality metric which represents how good the human visual system perceives a specific video content at different bitrates and resolutions.

LightFlow enhances viewers experience and increases user engagement, while reducing your CDN (delivery and storage)and transcoding costs around 30-40% in average.

Cognitive Services

LightFlow is not just about video quality. Taking advantage of machine learning and the LightFlow Engine, the platform provides access to contextual cognitive services such as face recognition, content moderation or taxonomy classifier.
