A new single-chip technology for Digital Cinema Mastering
Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium, 4 March, 2008: intoPIX, the leading JPEG 2000 solution provider, is promoting its new real-time JPEG 2000 hardware encoder IP for 4K Digital Cinema at ShoWest 2008.
Now extending its activities into Post Production intoPIX created a new 4K JPEG 2000 Encoder, the IPX-JP4K-E, with its established IPX-JP4K-D Decoder as a complete JPEG 2000 2K and 4K compression and decompression solution.
Encoding 4K in real-time and processing 2K images at up to 96 frames per second, the intoPIX range now brings JPEG 2000 scalable coding, lossless and high compression quality benefits exceeding DCI standards to the complete Digital Cinema production and Post-Production chain.
In common with the intoPIX decoder range, the new IPX-JP4K codec family is also based on a single, cost effective, FPGA.
intoPIX CEO Jean-Francois Nivart said “Digital Cinema is already revolutionising the cinema industry. intoPix’ new technology will enable the industry to realise its goals bringing huge benefits to production and post production in terms of speed and image quality.”
Further information at ShoWest are available by contacting Sales Manager Olivier Rey +32 477207998 or Jean-François Nivart on +32 495230008.
intoPIX develops and markets handling tools for large data stream with intrinsic high value with special regard to pictures having value in their quality, security and authoring rights.
Based in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, intoPIX was established in 2005 following a decision taken in 2001 by the Catholic University of Louvain (UCL) to direct the activities of its Electronic, Cryptographic and Image Compression laboratories towards the development of efficient JPEG 2000 compression solutions.
intoPIX’s world leading competences include FPGA and software engineering, JPEG 2000 image compression and symmetric-asymmetric security.
