Media Links Integrates TICO Lightweight Compression into its MDP Series
At IBC, Media Links’ MDP3040 IP Media Gateway will support 4K by including ultra-low latency TICO compression technology developed by intoPIX.
Media Links, announced at IBC 2018 the release of a intoPIX technology TICO-enabled decoder/encoder.
This multi-channel Media Links processor is a versatile two channel 4K/UHD TICO lightweight compression encoder/decoder, supporting several configurations. Two 12G-SDI inputs can be TICO encoded and transmitted over dual 10GbE network trunk interfaces or two TICO encoded network streams can be simultaneously received and decoded as two 12G-SDI outputs.
For delivering 4K/UHD signals over existing 3G-SDI infrastructures, the MDP3040 can function as a standalone two channel 12G-SDI input to two channel TICO compressed BNC output encoder, or as a two channel TICO compressed BNC input to two channel 12G-SDI output decoder.
Media Links’ SMPTE ST2022 compliant IP technology supports video, audio and data distribution over IP networks, replacing traditional dedicated switches and encoding devices.
Standardized by SMPTE as RDD35 and at ISO as JPEG XS (upcoming), TICO is an advanced, visually lossless compression technology designed to be the standard for efficiently handling UHD content in live production workflows. Widely used in the broadcast industry, TICO is a disruptive technology enabling compatibility and interoperability between manufacturers and broadcasters.
