Solution for consumer electronics manufacturers
Provider of innovative image processing technologies, intoPIX, introduced the novel JPEG XS standard with a preliminary demonstration of the TICO-XS FPGA and ASIC IP-cores, as well as CPU and GPU SDKs during CES 2019. Promising applications for TICO-XS include self-driving cars, VR/AR gear, displays, smartphones, or any other device that is required to transmit, manage or store video data.
Co-developed by intoPIX’s RD&I team and based on their widely used TICO RDD35 codec, JPEG XS is already reportedly generating interest across various industries such as industrial vision, broadcast, and professional AV. In the future, TICO-XS is aiming to be a crucial enabler for technological developments in any video-related device, as it provides the solution for a multitude of problems faced by consumer electronics manufacturers today:
- Managing more and better pixels: New resolution formats like 4K and 8K are establishing themselves rapidly. With JPEG XS, high resolution video can be carried over existing bandwidth, with lossless quality and imperceptible latency.
- Saving cost and power: Utilising JPEG XS for in-device video transport reduces internal links and memory. Paired with its extremely low complexity and low memory use, implementers can significantly reduce power consumption of any electronic device.
- Preserving quality with no latency: Being a line-based compression technology, JPEG XS induces only a few microseconds of latency - imperceptible to the human eye. After undergoing rigorous testing procedures by the ISO JPEG committee, the codec provides fully transparent quality at compression ratios from as low as 3bpp (8:1) for graphics, text, movie, gaming content and down to 1,5bpp ~ 16:1 typically for television and natural content.
- Simplifying connectivity: Processing video data streams with JPEG XS generates the crucial bandwidth savings needed to move more pixels over wired or wireless transmission (WiFi, WiGig, 5G), but also reduces the need for many internal links within a device.
