V-Nova™ is a London-headquartered company providing advanced video and image processing hardware and software solutions. Its novel encoding technology, PERSEUS™, is based on principles underlying human vision. PERSEUS™ simultaneously offers significant improvements in compression, picture quality and processing speed with reduced power consumption. This is true in all practical commercial applications, such as on- and offline broadcasting, contribution, production and distribution at all quality levels, and within existing infrastructure. Founded in 2011 as part of a growing consortium of leading global partners, V-Nova™ serves multiple industry segments, including broadcasting, aerospace & defence, security, video conferencing, medical imaging and telematics.
Our product, “P.Link”, is designed as a piece of equipment for sending studio quality video (SDI signals) between two sites (such as television studios) over Ethernet. The encoder takes an SDI input, compresses it with the Perseus Codec and sends it over the network to the decoder. The decoder receives a network input, decodes it with the Perseus Codec and outputs as an SDI signal. Encoding and decoding happens in real-time for both HD and UHD signals.
This Software Engineer role reports directly to a Group Manager responsible for development, but the candidate must also interact with other development disciplines to create and integrate Network/GPU/FPGA/Software technology into the product portfolio.
The company places high importance on a positive environment where talented individuals deliver exceptional products. The candidate must share that vision and be passionate about ‘right first time’ execution.
