Making Ultra HD easy to deploy with BBright UHD-Decode now supporting JPEG XS over ST2110-22
Mont-Saint-Guilbert & Rennes, November 16, 2021 – intoPIX is excited to announce that BBright has integrated the intoPIX accelerated JPEG XS software in their UHD-Decode platform. A universal multichannel live production server designed for professional Broadcast applications such as for satellite, terrestrial, cable, OTT operators and IPTV networks, is now equipped with JPEG XS output over ST2110-22.
This intoPIX FastTICO-XS SDK allowed BBright to build advanced software-based solutions offering very high performance and low latency for HD, 4K or 8K workflows. It makes it easy to incorporate it into latency-critical applications for live, remote or even cloud production. The new JPEG XS mezzanine codec standard can be applied wherever uncompressed video is currently used. As a lightweight image coding system, it also offers line-based latency with compression ratios typically up to 12:1 (or even more) while maintaining lossless quality.
“We are excited to announce the addition of JPEG XS in our gateway. I am impressed by the efficiency of the intoPIX software and the performance of JPEG XS.” said Guillaume Arthuis from BBright. “On top of that, the FastTICO-XS SDK was very easy to integrate in our product. Our R&D was very happy to work with it”.
“The SMPTE 2110-22 ecosystem is growing rapidly, we are happy to see BBright also embracing JPEG XS to create low-latency and bandwidth-efficient live production workflows.” said Gael Rouvroy, intoPIX CEO. “The BBright UHD-decode is fantastic in terms of versatility: it can now easily convert various formats into JPEG XS SMPTE 2110 streams.”
