A growing consortium of members.
EVS has joined the TICO Alliance which is working to establish a new visually lossless (up to 4:1) video compression standard that enables 4K/UHD transport over existing SDI infrastructures as well as 10 GigE IP production and contribution networks.
EVS says its move to join the growing consortium is in line with its “IP4Live” IP-based approaches to live video infrastructure and open solutions that supports interoperability between technology providers and optimisation of existing customer infrastructures to meet new production standards.
“With the steady transition to IP and the need to move 4K/UHD and even higher resolutions and frame rates in the future, precise compression is essential to next-generation video production and distribution,” said Benoit Fevrier, CTO, EVS. “TICO is an important step in this evolution and we’re committed to developing the standard and to the larger IP-based live ecosystem.”
Since January 2015, a Registered Disclosure Document (RDD) is under specification at SMPTE defining TICO compression and 4K mapping over active 3G-SDI and IP Networks (RTP). Developed by intoPIX, TICO compression technology is designed specifically for high bandwidth video transfer - HD to 4K/8K Ultra HD - over IP.
