â€œIn order to meet the broad spectrum of our partnersâ€™ and customersâ€™ needs, PERSEUS is offered in the form of appliances, embedded software and codec plug-ins. At NAB we will showcase these products across the entire range of video delivery, from contribution to distribution on connected devices.â€
