B.H.A Corporation announced a revolutionary new video compression technology, the XVD™ Media Platform.
BHA also announced an investment in creator of XVD, California-based DigitalStream-USA, Inc., together with an agreement covering joint development and marketing of the technology worldwide.

XVD is a highly versatile, multipurpose video and audio compression format that combines high compression ratios with the highest image and sound clarity compared with existing video technologies, such as MPEG. Since XVD achieves DVD-quality video at only 850-1,000 Kbps, a fraction of the bitrate required by DVD-video discs, the technology enables low-cost CD-R media as a suitable video storage media and facilitates high-quality streaming applications.
The XVD compression technology can produce output from 96x64 pixels for applications with extremely limited bandwidth up to 1920 x 1080 pixels for HDTV encoding and supports a multitude of source resolutions, frame rates, and target bitrates.
XVD software encoding applications are slated for release during the second half of 2003 to further spark the adoption and proliferation of the XVD standard among consumers.
