Another InfoComm has passed and left us with many news.
Here are our highlights of this year’s show in sunny Orlando, FL:
First adoptions of DanteAV powered by intoPIX J2K ULL
Only in February this year, Audinate released their new DanteAV suite and already at InfoComm, Japanese multinational Yamaha has announced its adoption. DanteAV leverages intoPIX’s broadly established JPEG 2000 ULL (Ultra Low Latency) technology. The codec provides it with the capability to transport 4K60 video over a standard 1Gig network. Unlike standard JPEG 2000 IP-cores, intoPIX’s solution is adapted to Pro-AV use cases. intoPIX’s engineers have optimized the algorithm to specifically suit more complex “screen-content” such as excel spreadsheets, CGI, fine text, etc. On top of that, the ULL mode of intoPIX brings down the codec’s latency to less than 10 milliseconds.
Crestron extends their DM NVX product portfolio with direct plug-in for screens
After the official integration of intoPIX FlinQ technology as part of Crestron’s Pixel Perfect Processing upgrade, the DM NVX product line has been extended by another product: the DM NVX D80. The D80 is a decoder that can be plugged straight into a display. This way, any 4K display can be transformed into a native DM NVX endpoint. This eliminates cost for the end-users, as it allows them to get rid of cables and power boxes, thus simultaneously simplifying installation.
The DM NVX D80 is based on development together with intel and leveraging intoPIX’s new FlinQ technology. The cooperation with leading display manufacturers such as LG, Philips, NEC, Avocor, and Smart technologies will serve implementors a wide variety of DM NVX enabled displays in the future.
Just as in previous DM NVX products, FlinQ technology delivers Pixel Perfect Quality on any type of content over a 1G network to reveal even the finest details in the densest images
TICO-XS gaining traction in the Pro-AV market
intoPIX, being highly involved in the development of the new ISO standard JPEG XS, has presented multiple demonstrations of their product implementation of the standard, named “TICO-XS”.
A hardware demonstration proved the technology’s capability to transport 4K60 4:4:4 video over a single 1GbE network, without visual loss in quality or impact on latency.
Their technology partner Macnica Americas has already shown the first product making use of this technology at InfoComm: their MPA1000 module.
On top of JPEG XS, Macnica’s module makes use of another open standard: ST2110. A winning combination that is already proving itself highly valuable in the broadcast industry.
