The costs for motion picture and commercial production have spiraled upwards for years. The costs for managing production and the tools for production oversight and auditing have been limited. But like most things tech today, the technology tools to facilitate production executive’s involvement in the production process across great distances has transformed in the availability of broadband, wireless LAN and the Internet.

Production and Post Facilities operate worldwide today, leveraging on the availability of hight tech talent in countries across the globe. The ability to review dailies, casting of talent, collaboration on storyboards, budgets & sharing applications over these platforms has literally transformed in the past two years. Expanded far beyond “Go To Meeting” type applications in the availability of a High Definition 1080p platform and the ability to “share the mouse” with everything from production content to accounting spreadsheets shared in in real time. The ability to review without the “viewer fatigue” associated with legacy technology is a direct result of the new visual clarity provided by 1080p visual fidelity using platforms over the Internet. One such new paradigm application is Magor TeleCollaboration use of scalable video coding..

Video coding is the process of acquiring large amounts of information from a video source, compressing it for transport and expanding it after transporting it. Using a codec-agnostic peer-to-peer video architecture called SVC++, Magor Telepresence enables robust, independent encoding control of 1080p resolution video at each endpoint and to deliver the visual detail required for natural collaboration. It uses flexible pre-video compression processes that can adapt in real time to varying network conditions and end-user behavior.

In essence, SVC++ makes Magor TeleCollaboration a good network citizen, enabling it to provide transparent network access to other applications, while delivering error-free HD video. To achieve this, SVC++ combines the following to deliver a dynamic pre-encoding process:

For Collaboration over distant endpoints, the Magor architecture provides dynamic segmentation, which partitions the video into segments based on the characteristics of the video content and applies a separate codec to each segment to ensure that motion and detail are appropriately encoded. This feature distinguishes the platform from everything else in the collaboration space.

Scalability, which on a link-by-link basis scales the number of rendered pixels to match available network resources. Adaptation, which dynamically lowers and raises video quality, resolution and frame rate of the video stream, in real time, to seamlessly optimize the key areas of the picture to respond to changing network conditions.

This powerful combination allows Magor TeleCollaboration to send independent pieces of video to multiple video encoders that use the H.264 Advanced Video Coding (AVC) High Profile (HiP) standard codec. Because each section of video is handled separately, every endpoint has the flexibility to dynamically adapt encoding processes to deliver the best visual experience.
