SK Telecom partners with French company to sell video tech
SK Telecom signed an agreement with French media security company Verimatrix to market its video remastering technology overseas.
Supernova is an artificial intelligence (AI) program created by SK that uses machine learning to increase the resolution of old video or audio files.
It has been used in various ways such as improving the quality of old videos for TV channel MBC and restoring old data for the Independence Hall of Korea, according to SK. The company introduced a mobile app version of Supernova at MWC 2022 in February.
Verimatrix is a content and app security provider that has over 1,000 clients in 120 countries, mainly in the content and telecommunications fields.
The two companies will combine Supernova with Verimatrix’s security service and offer a package deal to companies in South America, Europe and Asia.
They will also launch a cloud service that will allow video resolutions to be increased in real-time.
“SK Telecom will expand the presence of its media technology across the world and also contribute to the spread of Hallyu [Korean wave] content,” said Kim Hyuk, head of SK Telecom’s Global Media Support unit.
