ZOND 265 Incorporates the Netflix VMAF Metric for Quality Estimation

TOMSK, Russia, April 04, 2018

The new edition of HEVC video analyzer Zond 4.1 incorporates the Netflix VMAF metric for quality estimation

Solveig Multimedia, a leader in video editing and customizable multimedia, announces a new edition of its Zond 265 – HEVC Video analyzer, version 4.1. Solveig Multimedia and its partner nablet will showcase the new software and functionality at NAB Show in Las Vegas on April 9–12, 2018 (booth SU13713).

For over five years, Zond 265 has been the best-in-class tool for analyzing the 'High Efficiency Video Coding' (HEVC/H.265) standard. SolveigMM empowers software developers with a HEVC bit stream analyzer – instrumental to design and implementation of H.265-compliant codecs. The software reveals NAL information, frames types, frames sizes, time stamps, decoding/display order counters, bits distribution between frame elements, coding units data and more details.

Zond 4.1 now supports the Netflix's Video Multi-method Assessment Fusion (VMAF) metric for quality estimation. The software leverages VMAF to compare an original YUV file with a preloaded video file. Correlating with human perception, this metric enables more precise video assessment after compression. Since relying on manual visual testing at all times proves unrealistic, VMAF attempts to address the issue by utilizing samples from Netflix content to help design and validate the algorithms.

The latest Zond edition comes on the heels of a major update – version 4 – that greatly expanded the product’s compatibility matrix. The novelties of Zond 265 v4 encompassed 

  • AOMedia Video 1 (AV1) codec support in WebM format
  • MPEG-2 codec support as video elementary stream
  • Twitch and YouTube streaming of game sessions or video blogs
  • HEVC Screen Content Coding Extension (SCC) support, and more.
