Video Compression Software

NXPowerLite Video - Arriving end of 2018

 

Many of our users have seen how effective our technology at alleviating their storage issues. So much so that they're now NXPowerLite for File Servers customers.

Our solution currently supports the majority of the file types commonly used at work and at home - PDF, JPEG, PNG, TIFF and Microsoft Office files. However, one file type we currently don’t support is the other main server storage hog... video files.

After many user request we have decided to set our minds to tackling video compression and I’m glad to say that this will soon be a reality with our video compressor for file servers NXPowerLite Video. It will initially compress MP4 and MOV files and is in production now.

Compressing Video Files

NXPowerLite Video will work just like our NXPowerLite for File Servers solution offering high level video compression software. Built by file compression experts using best in class 3rd party libraries to reduce video file size with the following features:

MP4 & MOV Support

Compress MOV and MP4 files and in multiple locations.


Background Service

It runs in the background unattended to compress video while avoiding any preset tasks.

Up To 50% Reduction

So far we’ve been able to reduce video size by 30 - 50%.


Metadata Preserved

Resolution, frame-rate and all metadata will be retained and unaffected.

Batch Compress Video

Scan and batch compress video files in multiple folders or drives.


Easy Scheduling

Setup via the task scheduler to work around tasks and backups in your current workflows.

How It Works

The Proof of Concept application uses a video library from MainConcept and was built using their Codec and Transcoding SDK’s. Our application instructs this library to decode the video streams and then re-encode them using more processor-intensive settings. Encoding this way takes more computing power and a longer time but as a result it can significantly decrease the size of the finished video file.

Assessing Impact

To get an accurate picture of the total volume of MP4 and MOV (H264) files on your system we recommend using Tree Size Pro (https://www.jam-software.com/treesize/index.shtml).

This quickly identifies the volume of supported video files on your system to allow you to assess approximate storage savings that could be achieved.

Tree Size Pro is available on both free trial and paid versions.
