Video Coding simply explained with a video

What is the Spectos video coding service? How exactly does it work? And what are the advantages for Parcel and Mail service providers? We explain it with a new video.

Of all shipments, 3-7 % cannot be processed automatically by sorting machines. However, for an efficient workflow and smooth delivery processes a fast decoding of unassignable letters and parcels is extremely important. In particular during peak times such as holidays, the sorting centers are repeatedly at their limits. Volatile quantities also require constant personnel adjustments.This is because all mailings that cannot be read and sorted by the machines must be processed manually by employees. Spectos has developed a solution in order to avoid workflow disruptions and delays in mail processing: Video Coding.

Smooth delivery processes despite dynamic shipment volumes

This service supports the sorting centers of Parcel and Mail services in the assignment of mailings via remote session in real-time. Spectos video coding can be quickly and easily integrated into existing sorting systems, whereby it naturally complies with EU data protection guidelines.

The result: No impact on daily business operations due to scalable processes. Because of the higher sorting quality resulting from video coding, Parcel and Mail services can meet their delivery times regardless of dynamic mail volumes. Video coding not only increases delivery quality, but also enhances the efficiency of work processes.
