Technologies and solutions for energy-efficient and sustainable video streaming

About us

Energy-efficient and sustainable streaming for a green future of digital media

In the age of ever-expanding video streaming options online, we are thoroughly examining energy efficiency and sustainability across the entire streaming value chain. Our project seeks to assess and optimise all components, from A/V encoders to content delivery networks and end devices. With the aid of machine learning and artificial intelligence, we are crafting an eco-friendly digital clone of the streaming value chain that will support the optimal system parameters for sustainable operation and eco-friendly use of streaming content. Be part of the green future of video streaming!

Facts and figures


Analysis of all components throughout the streaming value chain in terms of their energy efficiency, including A/V encoders, packaging, content delivery networks (CDN), A/V players and end devices

Artificial Intelligence

Use of machine learning techniques and AI models (artificial intelligence), developing a green digital twin of the streaming value chain


Identification of appropriate measurement points, definition of measurement variables, collection of component-specific measurement data and utilization for optimizing the effect chain with real-time data from processing and playback processes


Result Measurable and thus assessable streaming value chain that enables sustainable operation and use of streaming content in terms of its carbon footprint in an automated, adaptive and self-learning manner

Our partner
