Why compression

​Professional media transition to IP

IT networks start to be at the heart of most broadcast and media operations. intoPIX delivers the IP-cores and software solutions to create the products that support these operations.

IP networking has revolutionized media contribution and distribution along with the SMPTE ST2022 and ST2110 standards which lie at the core of new live workflows, dematerialized facilities and cloud-based operation. 


intoPIX compression solutions like JPEG XSSMPTE RDD35 and JPEG2000 Ultra Low latency are extending the network capacity to manage HD, 4K, 8K streams over IP (1G/10G/25G) keeping the lowest latency (down to a single millisecond) and a visually lossless quality.

​From SDI to IP using intoPIX

Transport of HD, 4K, 8K over IP with SMPTE 2110 (-22) with TicoXS (JPEG XS)  enabling you to carry efficiently any video formats over IP with full flexibility and all the benefits of intoPIX bandwidth-efficient solutions. Read more about the VSF TR08 or about the JPEG XS IETF RFC.

Transport of 4K or 8K over existing HD-SDI / 3G-SDI 

The mapping of the TicoXS (JPEG XS) or Tico (SMPTE RDD35) mezzanine compression to carry UHDTV 4K 60P over a single HD-SDI or 3G-SDI cable has been fully specified in the SMPTE RDD35 and by intoPIX. intoPIX provides all the needed building blocks to create a 4K over 3G-SDI / HD-SDI or 8K over 3G-SDI solutions. Have a look at the intoPIX TicoXS IP-cores and peripheral IP to map the compression over SDI.

Transport of 4K or 8K over existing SMPTE2022-6 IP protocol

As SMPTE ST2022-6, defines the transport of HD-SDI or 3G-SDI over IP, using TicoXS or TicoRDD35, it is easy to leverage an existing SMPTE 2022-6 system to carry up to three to six UHDTV 4K 60P streams over a single 10 GbE port using the SMPTE 2022-6 standard.

​Simplify your live production workflow 
in the LAN, over the WAN & to the CLOUD

Replacing SDI - Replacing uncompressed video - Moving to IP (ST2110)

In the LAN

  • ​Cheaper cables (CAT5e<1Gpbs, CAT6<10Gbps)
  • Friendly for PC
  • No need to re-deploy new cables​

Over the WAN

  • ​Cost effective bandwidth: 10x-15x smaller than uncompressed video
  • Ease the remote production, VAR, inter-facilities

To the CLOUD

  • Efficient in CPU, GPU and FPGA
  • Low-latency access (AWS CDI,..)

​Beyond 4K HDR Video: 
8K production with intoPIX

Over a single 2.5GbE, 5GbE, 10GbE

TicoXS can transport a 8K 60fps video stream with lossless quality over a single 2.5GbE / 5GbE / 10GbE link using JPEG XS RTP payload and a SMPTE 2110 transport.

Over a single 3G-SDI / 6G-SDI / 12G-SDI

It has already been proven. intoPIX can enable you to carry a 8K 60fps video stream over a single 3G-SDI, 6G-SDI or 12G-SDI link with lossless quality.

​Bandwidth-efficiency throughout
your whole IP network with JPEG XS

intoPIX's innovative image processing and video compression solutions create bandwidth-efficiency straight from the sensor of HD or UHD broadcast cameras throughout your entire workflow via IP networks. 

Typical applications for our IP-cores and SDKs are cameras, video editing, KVM, transcoding, recording, multi-viewers, playback and many more.

TicoXS IP-CORES & SDKs

A standard for 
compressed video over IP

Part 22 of the widely used SMPTE ST2110 defines a standardized way for transporting JPEG XS compressed video over IP workflows. The introduction of compressed video to ST 2110 intensifies the already existing advantages of moving to IP based workflows – flexibility, scalability, and unlimited accessibility. Allowing users to transport generally high-bandwidth videos like 4K and 8K over cost-effective COTS 1GbE/10GbE networks.  

​Contribution and remote-production
with JPEG2000 and VSF TR01

intoPIX JPEG 2000 perfectly suits broadcast needs. Its improved compression efficiency will provide a pristine image quality. Its resolution scalability seamlessly allows the extraction of small resolution proxies from the full resolution, a very useful feature on the acquisition site and during production.

Also, its intra-frame nature provides low latency processing throughout the whole chain, increased error resilience during transmission and easy editing (butt-splicing). Last but not least, its capacity to avoid additional image degradation at each encoding and decoding step provides constant quality multi-generations during the numerous post-production processes of the workflow. Furthermore the unique Ultra-Low-Latency mode developed by intoPIX provides additional benefits for Live transmission


VSF TR01 V1: 

J2K over SMPTE 2022 1/2 


intoPIX has successfully participated interoperability tests organized by VSF 

with intel-and Xilinx-based reference designs. Moreover our efforts have been awarded by an EMMY AWARD in 2015. We have developed a wide range of JPEG2000 encoder & decoder IP-cores, as well as memory controllers and MPEG2-TS IP-cores to enable our customer to create competitive VSF TR01 solutions.





VSF TR01 V2: 

J2K with Ultra-Low-Latency 


In fields such as live events or broadcast, where time accuracy is a must 

and delays are not acceptable, an additional Ultra Low Latency capability has been added to the JPEG2000 IP cores, allowing processing delay of less than

frame between encoding and decoding.

intoPIX works within the VSF J2K group to update the VSF TR01 specification 

to make use of the intoPIX JPEG2000 ULL encoder/decoder cores interop-erable in broadcast facilities. 



New Capture workflow using TicoRAW

TicoRAW allows low latency RAW Bayer streaming from the Camera to the Cloud, the Datacenter or the Remote CCU.


The Benefits of using TicoRAW in Live Production :

  • Transmit directly High Quality RAW Bayer streams (ie. over SMPTE 2110-22) to the cloud or to remote location with zero latency, lower bandwidth and low complexity.
  • Leverage powerful Remote Production resources (ISP Debayering, Stitching, Virtual View, Machine Learning, Automation, Region of interest,...).
  • Avoid the use of specific robotics, get fixed cameras to capture larger resolutions (with 8K cameras, camera array, 360 cameras,..) in studio or stadium with more efficiency.
  • Capture & Transmit more RAW data from HighSpeed or 8K Cameras.

THE CAMERA ARRAY EXAMPLE

A multitude of small cameras are installed in a circle around a stadium, in order to capture the whole field and not miss anything of the game. With TicoRAW, the huge amounts of RAW Bayer data generated by these cameras can be transferred without any latency or loss of quality into the cloud for live production with a much efficient bitrate and preserving the full flexibility of RAW.

​Video compression: 
​A long term solution

Image compression is often seen as a transitional solution before network bandwidth is increased to carry uncompressed video again. However, thanks to the lossless quality and near-zero latency of intoPIX's broadcast solutions, it can be a sustainable replacement with various advantages over uncompressed video:



Higher reliability

Thanks to the use of forward error correction (FEC), compressed video has lower chances of packet loss on IP networks than uncompressed.


Future-proof

Simply extend from HD to 8K, increase bit-rates, frame-rates, ... without the need of extensive network constructions.



More cost-effective

Implementing intoPIX's innovative compression can greatly reduce network investments and allows use of COTS IP products.
