The Need for a Revolution

According to estimates, by 2018 global internet traffic will reach 1.6 zettabytes per year, or 131.6 exabytes per month.  A large part will be video; in fact the sum of all forms (TV, internet, video on demand, & P2P) is expected to be 80% to 90% of global consumer traffic by 2018.  The problem is the demand for video bandwidth keeps growing, but network compression schemes’ efficiency only doubles every ten years.

“It is clear that a fundamental change must be made in how networks operate. Our new technology provides a solution for this today, easily integrates into existing systems, and is fully compatible with future compression schemes.”

- Yves Faroudja
