an optimized footprint, the codecs fit in a single and cost effective FPGA chip. The performances are very impressive achieving 60 frames per second with a respective maximum compression bitrate of 2Gbps for 4K and 8Gbps for 8K at a visually lossless quality. The new intoPIX 4K and 8K codecs are a real opportunity to adapt today’s industry to the new ULTRAHDTV standard and implement a complete production and high quality transmission chain.
“With this new codec implemented in a single FPGA chip, intoPIX is offering a flexible solution for the future production workflows in Cinema and in Broadcast, from capture to post-production”. “We are focusing on providing 4K and 8K codecs with the lowest footprint & lowest power consumption achievable in the current FPGA”, said Gael Rouvroy, CTO of intoPIX.
The first product release is planned for Q4 2012. IntoPIX will be exhibiting at the IBC tradeshow in Amsterdam (Hall 10. D31 – 7-11 September) and will share more details about the targeted FPGA devices and release timeframe.
