Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC (“SIE”) has made public the company is going to acquire iSIZE, a UK-based company that specializes in deep learning for video delivery. To deliver bitrate savings and quality improvements for the media and entertainment industry, iSIZE builds AI-powered solutions; its acquisition provides Sony Interactive Entertainment with expertise in applying machine learning to video processing, which will benefit a range of Sony’s R&D efforts as well as video and streaming services.
Founded in 2016 and based in London, iSIZE has a team of engineers and technical experts who have developed a suite of software solutions to optimize video.
