This case study explores the “hologram technology” from MirrorTab for secure web app access, particularly for sensitive applications like banking. The application uses Visionular’s AI-powered video encoders to ensure a seamless, high-quality experience at low bitrates, indistinguishable from actual web-based browsing.

The Convenience Conundrum

The internet fuels our modern lives, connecting us to information, services, and opportunities at our fingertips. With a single click, we manage finances, access healthcare portals, and even shop online. However, lurking beneath this convenience lies a hidden danger: browser extensions.

These seemingly harmless add-ons, promising grammar perfection, coupon alerts, and productivity boosts, come at a steep price: your sensitive data.

Browser Extensions - a Trojan Horse in Disguise

Extensions, once installed, reside within your browser, and are granted near-limitless access to your most valuable information. Each extension is like a digital stranger watching your every online move, capable of:

  • Reading Everything You Do: Bank statements, medical records, personal emails – nothing is off-limits.
  • Manipulating Websites: Subtly injecting ads, tracking your activity, or even initiating unauthorized transactions.
  • Exposing Your Data: Unsecured extensions become gateways for hackers, jeopardizing entire companies and financial systems.

These browser-based vulnerabilities create a massive cybersecurity blind spot, often left unaddressed and putting countless individuals and organizations at risk.

MirrorTab: The Holographic Shield

Enter MirrorTab, a revolutionary solution from a forward-thinking tech startup. MirrorTab tackles the inherent flaws of browser extensions, offering an elegantly powerful alternative:

Imagine a “hologram” – a secure, real-time, and interactive visual representation of websites and applications projected directly within your browser. This impenetrable shield isolates your device from the actual website code and data, safeguarding your privacy and security.

The Challenge: Finding the Perfect Formula

While the hologram concept was brilliant, translating it into reality presented a significant hurdle: finding the right video compression technology.

MirrorTab needed a solution that could:

  • Deliver Flawless Streaming: Ensure smooth video playback even on limited bandwidth networks.
  • Maintain Pixel-Perfect Visuals: Guarantee a visually indistinguishable experience from the original website.
  • Eliminate Lag and Delays: Provide instant responsiveness for seamless user interaction and this needs a low-latency video encoder at its heart.
  • Minimize Resource Consumption: Provide high CPU efficiency and scalability without incurring high server costs.

Existing options, such as VP8, VP9, and open-source versions of H.264/AVC and AV1 could not satisfy the four requirements, thereby preventing MirrorTab from launching its promising new concept.

Enter Visionular: The Missing Piece of the Puzzle

In their quest for the perfect solution, MirrorTab discovered Visionular, a company at the forefront of AI-powered video compression technology.

Incorporated in 2018, Visionular’s state-of-the-art video codecs have transformed the businesses of over 100 enterprises globally.
