Develop new video codec based on vectors: Farewell to the videos pixelated?

The University of in conjunction with Root6 Technology, Smoke & Mirrors and Ovation Data Services are developing a new video codec, which they say will lead to the death of the pixel within the next five years (2017).

The video vector has been shown at the event CVMP 9th European Conference on the Visual Media Production Held at Vue Cinema in Leicester Square, London, and aims to displace existing based on pixels, which require large amounts of data and require too many resources to be compressed, losing quality in the process.

The new video based on vector seeks to remedy the problem of the current video offering maximum visual quality no matter the resolution used, both claim to have corrected all the problems previously present in this type of technology that prevented adoption increases use such as the difficulty of filling in color between the many professional quality vector curves.

Yet know if this new video format based on vector revolutionize the world of video, or join existing as another interesting option.
