​IntoPIX Previews JPEG-XS At SMPTE

Coding experts intoPIX are demonstrating a first TICO-XS hardware implementation of the upcoming JPEG-XS standard at the SMPTE 2018 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition in Los Angeles.

Currently under standardization as JPEG-XS by the JPEG committee (ISO/IEC SC29 WG1), the codec is suitable for IP workflows in studio environments, local video networks and VR/AR applications. Built on IntoPIX’ TICO codec, it enables the use of standard COTS Ethernet infrastructures or other wired connections for a cost-effective move into IP workflows.

According to IntoPix, the codec brings further bandwidth efficiency for HD, 4K and 8K with “microsecond latency, lossless quality, and bandwidth usage ranging from 125Mbps to 400Mbps for HD and 500Mbps to 1.6Gps for 4K.”

The developer wants visitors to judge the codec’s quality on a split screen playback for themselves. The display will show various videos in a side by side uncompressed and compressed mode with varying compression ratios down to 10:1 compression.
