intoPIX Announces New TICO FPGA IP-cores for 4K Video Over IP

New intoPIX TICO FPGA IP-cores offer low cost performance for video over IP in 4:4:4 color space, UHDTV1 and 4K with full 8, 10 or 12-bit depth in 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 sampling rates.

Because the intoPIX TICO FPGA IP-cores support 4K/UltraHD up to 60p video formats as specified by HDMI2.0 or DP1.2, they will enable the industry to build higher performance video over IP products to transport 4K over inexpensive 10GbE IP networks and other limited existing or legacy interfaces.

“The release of the TICO 4:4:4 cores represent a real breakthrough, delivering cost-effective high frame rate 4K at up to 60p and 4:4:4 to the Pro-AV industry,” said Jean-Baptiste Lorent, product and marketing manager, intoPIX.

“The TICO IP-core delivers a vast range of cutting-edge features because it is more than a codec, it is a tool replacing uncompressed video to offer more.”

TICO lightweight compression offers a true lossless and visually lossless compression up to 4:1, with no impact on latency--only few lines of pixels--and high performances on either a CPU (Central Processing Unit), FPGA (Field-programmable Gate Array) or ASIC (Application-specific Integrated Circuit). When implemented in FPGA, ASIC or even CPU designs, this compression technology, which was submitted as RDD to SMPTE, offers light visually lossless compression of any kind of content.

New TICO UHD4K 4:4:4 IP-cores Features Include:

Supports 4K and UltraHD at frame rates up to 60p

Supports 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 workflows up to 12bit

Smallest Altera / Xilinx FPGA footprint (no external DDR)

Best quality up to 4:1 compression (from Mathematically lossless to Visually Lossless)

Just a few pixel lines of latency
