Title: SYSTEMS, DEVICES AND METHODS FOR SECURELY DISTRIBUTING HIGHLY-COMPRESSED MULTIMEDIA CONTENT
Abstract:
A multimedia distribution device (Figure 2, 200) includes a nonvolatile memory (202) that stores a compressed media signal in which at least two scenes are selectively compressed using different codecs from a codec library, the codecs being automatically selected to produce a highest compression quality for the respective scenes according to a set of criteria without exceeding a target data rate. The nonvolatile memory (202) also stores a plurality of codec indicators (110a-d) specifying which codecs from the codec library were used to respectively compress each scene within the compressed media signal.
