MediaKind ACT: AI-based Compression Technology

Technology Innovation Series

MediaKind’s AI-based Compression Technology (ACT) is a new compression algorithm enabling significant operational and performance improvements. ACT uses Artificial Intelligence to select the most effective balance of compression methods in real time for the content type it’s delivering, working for both traditional linear and ABR encoding and transcoding.

ACT intelligent encoding is exclusive to MediaKind and is now supported in our Aquila solutions, offering an exciting and innovative way to improve encoder performance and increase compute resource efficiency, all the while reducing delivery and infrastructure costs by minimizing bandwidth.
