TicoXS,  JPEG XS by intoPIX

"We invented the ultimate codec to manage and transmit more pixels ​with lower power, low bandwidth and lossless quality at the speed of light"
​Co-created by intoPIX, the new JPEG XS standard delivers the world smallest latency, best quality and lowest complexity in software and hardware.

TICO means TIny COdec. intoPIX has made significant intellectual property development in lightweight low latency video compression during the last 10 years, from inventing and standardizing the world’s smallest and fastest mezzanine  "TICO" (SMPTE RDD35) supported by the TICO Alliance, to being the proponent and co-creator of the world first international ISO standard technology "JPEG XS", addressing this matter. 

The technology and associated products are covered by one or more claims of patent, awarding intoPIX's hard work and innovation. Embrace the future of image and video compression with JPEG XS.

Due to increasing resolutions (4K/8K), higher frame rates, 360° capture and higher quality pixels (e.g. HDR), all devices and infrastructures have to handle ever increasing data volumes. Whether AV over IP, virtual reality, gaming, live production, remote production, automotive or digital cinema workflows, the JPEG XS mezzanine codec standard can be applied wherever uncompressed video is currently used. 

As a lightweight image coding system, it also offers line based latency with compression ratios from 2:1 to 12:1 (or even more) while maintaining lossless quality. 

XS stands for  "eXtraSmall" and "eXtra Speed"
​JPEG XS is the first ISO standard (ISO/IEC 21122) designed 
for latency-critical applications offering lossless quality at very low complexity

SAFEGUARDING ALL ADVANTAGES OF 
AN UNCOMPRESSED STREAM ...
Low power consumption (through lightweight processing)
Ultra low latency in coding and decoding
Lossless picture quality
Small size on chip

Fast on software (CPU with the use of SIMD and GPU)
... WITHOUT SIGNIFICANT INCREASE 
IN REQUIRED BANDWIDTH & COST
Low power consumption (through reasonable bandwidth interfaces)
Longer cable runs

Perfect fit for existing and new infrastructures
More pixels at a reduced cost 
(higher resolutions, higher frame rates, higher bit depth)

 Smallest Latency, Best Image Quality and Lowest Complexity

Support higher data streams (HD, 4K, 8K, …) in existing systems and infrastructures using the available pipeline bandwidth.

Enable the use of a lower link rate for applications where high link rates is not possible.

Increase the number of streams or the stream resolution that could be supported in a multi-stream configuration.

Reduce the number of lanes in a display or sensor interface needed to transport a stream in order to save power, cost, or both.

Significantly reduce the internal video bandwidth (and power consumption) in systems such as mobile devices, cameras, video servers and displays.

Increase the storage, video buffer or frame buffer capacity with cost-effectiveness for applications where high link rates may not be possible.​​
