NAB Show, Las Vegas, NV - April 16th, 2016 - intoPIX, an innovative technology provider of video compression solutions, announces that industry specialists Blackmagic Design and Panasonic will adopt their TICO compression IP cores.

In the future, TICO 4:1 visual lossless compression algorithm will be used by Australian TV and cinema electronics manufacturer Blackmagic Design for their IP transmission equipment.

TICO compression IP cores offer visually lossless video compression at a 4:1 rate with only a few lines of latency. This makes it the perfect technology for applications that rely on live video transmission such as sports event broadcast.

This displays a major step in in the company’s offerings to move along with the industry’s transition to an IP based infrastructure.

Next to Blackmagic Design, also Panasonic will adopt intoPIX’s TICO IP cores. As a new member of the AIMS Alliance, the adoption of TICO compression manifests Panasonic’s position as a major player in the broadcast and Pro AV industry, with their ongoing advancement of Media IP Solutions.

Having a shared booth this year, Panasonic showcases the interoperability of its system with that of Canon using an IP infrastructure. This demo proves seamless transmission of data across both manufacturer’s stands thereby emphasizing the advantages of AV over IP.
