Beamr has HEVC workflow ready for perceptual filter compression

We have been talking about Beamr Imaging since IBC 2013 when the term “perceptual filter” was added to our vocabulary as a way of compressing video. The idea is simply to eliminate any detail that the human eye cannot see, simplifying the compression process and getting streams down to lower and lower bitrates.
