New “FastTICO-XS” SDK allows software-driven live production solutions running in HD, 4K and even 8K.

NAB Show, Las Vegas – April 7th 2019, intoPIX, leading provider of innovative image processing and video compression technologies, announced today the demonstration of their FastTICO-XS SDKs, that will accelerate JPEG-XS encoding and decoding for Live production. 

intoPIX’s team has worked intensively to extend TICO compression’s capability with the new TICO-XS being standardized as JPEG-XS. The new SDK will offer sub-frame latency and bandwidth ranging from 125Mbps to 400Mbps for HD, from 500Mbps to 1.6Gps for 4K, and from 1Gbps to 4Gbps for 8K. It is a great enabler for Live Production to manage more pixels without adding complexity to infrastructures and systems.

Two FastTICO-XS demonstrations will be shown to visitors on intoPIX’s booth C8626 in central hall at NAB Show 2019:
  • 1. FastTICO-XS live streaming of HD and 4K running on Intel X86 CPU processors and 
  • 2. FastTICO-XS live 8K 60 frame per second decoding and playback on Nvidia GPU.

Charles Buysschaert, Head of software development at intoPIX states: “We are seeing growing demands to move live production to virtualization, cloud and software-centric approach. Our new FastTICO-XS SDKs will perfectly complement this trend to deliver bandwidth-efficiency solutions with the usual intoPIX deliverables of lossless quality and ultra-low latency.”

With compression coming to SMPTE ST2110 as “part 22”, JPEG XS is set to become the go-to solution for broadcast professionals that want to create bandwidth-efficient production workflows over IP networks. 

More information on the FastTICO-XS SDK, its first official release date, and evaluation can be obtained by NAB visitors from intoPIX’s booth staff of via mail enquiry to
