Flawless link quality

Optimized for the full variety of screen-content:
Excel tables, fine text, natural video, CGI, video games, ...

FlinQ™ technology is an innovative image processor invented by intoPIX that enables higher quality and a significant gain of efficiency for high performance and reliable visual communication. FlinQ™ technology delivers flawless video quality and display transmission over both wired and wireless links. 

It opens up a realm of new capabilities to manage pixel perfect 4K and 8K display and video content, leveraging existing IT infrastructures and networks with very low power consumption, while safeguarding micro-second latency.

The FlinQ difference

Displays and video are everywhere to deliver us content with higher quality, higher dynamic range and higher resolutions. 
But these new technologies pose a serious challenge for continued connectivity due to extensive data rates and high bandwidth requirements.

Traditionally, there are 2 methods this problem is dealt with: 

Traditional method 1

Choosing large bandwidth streaming solutions
keeps quality high, but results in a high replacement cost, involving complex and power-hungry devices, cabling and infrastructures. 

Traditional method 2

Others settle for strong trade-offs and sacrifice quality through downsampling (from 444 to 420), traditional video compression (H264, HEVC, MJPEG) and other tricks that impact either quality, or latency or both at the same time.

The new method: FlinQ

FlinQ does not compromise and proposes
a novel approach through innovative pixel processing, enabling better quality pixels with 
a smaller bandwidth usage.

​Technology benefits

Flawless processing
​on any content

Patented display and video modes enable recovery of 

all the original information 

Pixel perfect quality

Natural video, CGI, and fine text without compression artifacts

Extremely low power
Extremely low resource
and memory usage
No latency

(imperceptible to humans)
High flexibility
Any resolution, color depth or frame rate
Multi-video & display-format management


It is essential to maintain image quality when connecting displays and videos over the network. 
4K and 8K links require no latency and optimal data rates in order to fit existing networks.
