Comprimato, a compression technology developer based in Czech Republic, says its JPEG2000 codec is available as a plug-in for solutions from Imagine Communications. Workflow designers using Zenium-powered products from Imagine will be able to drag and drop the codec to create practical processes as required.
JPEG2000 is, of course, a popular wavelet compression providing excellent image quality and good efficiency. Comprimato's version uses the massively parallel processing available on today’s GPUs and CPUs to achieve claimed high-speed processing, consistent latency and high quality.
The Comprimato codec is available as a software plug-in. Zenium is Imagine Communications’ modular platform “for building smarter virtual applications and services”. One of the first products to use Zenium is the SelenioFlex File media processing solution, which blends transcoding and workflow capabilities to support a comprehensive range of formats.
"The key advantage of a software-defined architecture is the ability to drop in the functionality you require. Not every user will need JPEG2000 encoding and transcoding, but for those who do we can now offer Comprimato’s software codec as an optional plug-in.”Brick Eksten, chief product officer, Imagine.
“JPEG2000 is a key requirement in IMF, DCP, or broadcast applications, so we are very excited to see how it will be used in combination with Imagine Communications flexible software-defined architecture.”Jirˇí Matela, Comprimato founder and CEO.
