Following quickly on the introduction of its single chip FPGA JPEG2000 technology earlier this month intoPIX has today announced an agreement with MikroM, a leading provider of audio-visual digital OEM product, to provide a total decoding solution for Digital Cinema.
The agreement - under which intoPIX will provide its IPX-JP2K compression and AES security IP’s as core components of MikroM’s new Digital Cinema decoder product - marks the fi rst step in intoPIX world-wide distribution of its FPGA IP solutions.
“We have selected intoPIX because of their know-how in JPEG2000 compression technology and their smart implementation as a single chip FPGA.” commented Holger Krahn, CEO of MikroM,” This gives us the opportunity to provide a single chip agile decoder capable of MPEG and JPEG2000 processing and therefore a competitive advantage in the face of ASIC.”
“I’m delighted to be able to announce the selection of intoPIX technology at this moment” added Jean Francois Nivart, intoPIX CEO. “MikroM’s experience in a wide range of very demanding visualization markets and reputation for quality and reliability gives me great confi dence in their ability to provide, and support, their fl exible Digital Cinema processor”.
Both intoPIX and MikroM will be present at ShoWest, Las Vegas, March 13-16
