Illutsra IntelliZip

Illustra® IntelliZip

Smart Bandwidth Management

Illustra IntelliZip simultaneously allows users to receive real-world cost savings by both reducing the load on their network and lowering the amount of storage required. Customers with scenes that feature times of no movement or areas within the image that remain static stand to gain the most from this smart compression technology. These conditions allow IntelliZip to dramatically reduce the amount of bandwidth and storage needed while still recorded at a high quality.

Intelligent Bitrate Control

Illustra IntelliZip uses intelligent bitrate control mechanisms to adjust the compression configurations during live streaming, minimizing network bandwidth and storage requirements for H.264 and H.265 video streams.

For a static scene where motion is low and light level is even, the IntelliZip rate control engine will perform the following actions:

  • Increase the GOP length up to a maximum of 180 to reduce the frequency of large I-frames, therefore reducing the average bitrate required
  • Lower the target bitrate for the encoder

For a high motion scene the IntelliZip rate control engine will perform the following actions:

  • Reduce the GOP length down to a minimum (equal to the frame rate) to increase the frequency of I-frames ensuring that quality is maintained
  • Adjust the QP values to increase the level of detail in the image
  • Configure ROI to increase the detail of regions of high motion and reduce detail for regions of low motion
  • Increase the target bitrate for the encoder

Ideal Applications

The common use case for this technology is for customers with scenes that feature times of no movement or areas within the image that remain static. For example a car park or building entrance scene may have low motion activity for large periods of each day. These conditions allow Intellizip to dramatically reduce the amount of bandwidth & storage needed whilst allowing the customer to record and/or live view a high quality video stream.
