With JPEG-XS, EVS Media Infrastructure, delivers the path to “bandwidth-efficient” ST2110 IP transmission

Mont-Saint-Guilbert, May 15, 2020 – intoPIX is happy to announce that EVS Media Infrastructure, global leader in broadcast network infrastructure, chooses to include intoPIX TICO-XS solution in its Neuron product range.

Designed around IP technology, Neuron sets new benchmarks in performance and flexibility. High performance processing in a centralized and virtualized environment, delivering total flexibility and performance, and using significantly less electrical power. Neuron solves every processing task a broadcaster encounters in the IP and legacy domains, enabling multiple channels in a single device. No more physical cascading of products.

With the JPEG-XS option powered by intoPIX, EVS Media Infrastructure Neuron product range is enhanced with compression and decompression functionality. JPEG-XS is the new standard created for latency-critical applications. It offers lossless quality video compression at very low complexity and low power consumption. Latency is as low as few lines of pixels, so less than ONE millisecond to encode and to decode a video stream with 8:1 -10:1 compression ratio.

The Neuron JPEG-XS encoder and decoder run on the same hardware as Neuron’s general processing module. By uploading different firmware to this board, up to 8 HD encoders/decoders or up to 4 UHD encoders/ decoders can be added. The inputs and outputs of the 16 processing paths can be freely configured to use SDI, ST2022 or ST2110 or (de)compressed JPEG XS feeds. This means when you enable e.g. 4 HD encoders and 4 HD decoders, you have 8 paths left for SDI to IP, IP to SDI or IP to IP processing.

Both EVS Media Infrastructure and intoPIX are showing new products powered by JPEG-XS in a series of webinars. The two companies welcome everybody to contact their respective sales team to sample the intoPIX JPEG-XS technology and the EVS Neuron product.
