NAB Show vendors devote significant time and resources to bringing their best new developments to the show floor. The IABM Game Changer Awards honor this effort and the forward-looking solutions it yields. The judging panel has identified intoPIX TICO compression technology as one of the leading products to be exhibited at NAB Show 2015.

TICO is a the new disruptive lightweight compression technology developed by intoPIX, which enables 4K/UHD to be transported over legacy SDI infrastructure and 10GbE networks with the smallest latency, the smallest complexity and a preserved high quality.  The technology is currently being pushed at the SMPTE as an RDD.

Main Characteristics of TICO are:

•  Visually lossless compression up to 4:1

•  Even Mathematically Lossless capable at lower compression ratio

•  Robustness to multiple encoding generations

•  Fixed & Pixel lines-based latency

•  Extremely light in FPGA (no external DDR memory)

•  Fast in software

•  Resolutions from HD to 4K/8K

At NAB, TICO® compression supporters announce the launch of the TICO Alliance (www.tico-alliance.org) to move to 4K/UHD in Live broadcast production. Several demos are organized by the Alliance members and other adopters including 4K video over 10G IP and over 3G-SDI, .
