Total Multimedia Prepares Release of Technology for High Quality 4k and 8k Video with 70% Bandwidth Savings

April 10, 2019

NEW YORK, April 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Total Multimedia Incorporated (OTC PNK: TMMI) (“TMMI” or the “Company”). Web site: http://www.tmmi.us.

TMMI is preparing the upcoming release of its proprietary TRUREZ™ video scaling technology for better imagery together with new versions of its TRUDEF™ Video Player.

The new technology is aimed at the content providers experiencing pressure from bandwidth consumption and increased costs as they expand their menus to compete for subscriber share at higher 4K and 8K resolution. Coupled with the market need to offer better video for large displays, TMMI’s bundled technology solution is positioned for the exponential growth in streaming video.

For every doubling of resolution from 2K to 4K to 8K, approximately 400% more bandwidth is required. The upcoming releases of TMMI’s technology supports the latest AV1 video codec on the Microsoft UWP platform in a software system. It delivers up to 70% bandwidth savings at higher resolution generating visibly higher quality video, compared to the widely used standard linear scaling widely used today for mainstream 2K.

Currently, 1GB of data per hour is used for each 2K stream of High Definition. Subscriber service plans currently impose bandwidth limitations or caps on their Internet service creating real cost issues for the consumers.

The emerging 8K resolution contains 16X more pixels than 2K. The impact on increased consumer broadband consumption and expense to achieve the better video is significant. Published numbers reflect that in the United States alone the 109 million subscribers spend an estimated $65.4 billion on bandwidth. One leading content provider alone expends in excess of $450 million annually to stream at lower resolution.

A recent survey of 150 service providers involving 2.1 billion worldwide subscribers reports that streaming video overwhelmingly dominates bandwidth use representing 57.7% of the total worldwide downstream traffic on the Internet followed by 17.0% web, 7.8% gaming, and 5.1% social media. (Sandvine’s Global Internet Phenomena Report as reported in Variety)

President and CEO, Paul Healy stated, “The combined pressure on increased bandwidth consumption, increased costs and the need for better video imagery puts TMMI’s technology at the crossroads of the expansion in streaming video. TMMI’s upcoming release takes our proof of concept to the next level with increased graphics speed. The company plans to release demonstration models during the second quarter of 2019. With these milestones met, we expect to engage with new growth capital funding sources.”

TMMI is providing a bundled subscriber solution utilizing its proprietary TRUREZ™ video scaler in TMMI’s Mini PC X™, a superior and powerful home entertainment device based on the Intel NUC, which has been named one of the top nine devices of its kind on Lifewire.com (specifications below).
