Comprimato Launches UltraPix  high performance 4K, 8K and VR format for Adobe Premiere Pro CC

Comprimato, a leading provider of GPU accelerated storage compression and video transcoding solutions, has launched Comprimato UltraPix, a simple video plug-in for popular post-production tools. The first release brings proxy-free, auto-setup workflows for Ultra HD, VR and more on any hardware running Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC, a key component of Adobe Creative Cloud®. Comprimato will demonstrate the technology at NAB in Las Vegas, April 24-27, 2017. 

The challenge for post facilities finishing in 4K or 8K Ultra HD, or working on immersive 360° VR projects, is managing the massive amount of data. The files are large, requiring a lot of expensive storage, which can be slow and cumbersome to load, and achieving realtime editing performance is difficult.

Comprimato UltraPix addresses this challenge, building on JPEG2000, a compression format that, offers high image quality (including mathematically lossless mode), to generate smaller versions of each frame as an inherent part of the compression process. With Comprimato UltraPix, the file is delivered at a size that the users hardware can accommodate.

Once Comprimato UltraPix is loaded on any hardware, it automatically configures itself with auto-setup, requiring no specialist knowledge from the editor who continues to work in Adobe Premiere Pro CC exactly as normal. Any workflow can be boosted by Comprimato UltraPix, and the larger the files the greater the benefit.

Comprimato UltraPix is a multi-platform video processing software for instant video resolution in real-time. It is a lightweight, downloadable video plug-in for OS X, Windows and Linux systems. Proxy-file rendering, transcoding or management is no longer needed on existing storage, and editors can seamlessly switch between 4K, 8K, Full HD, HD or lower resolutions anytime.

JPEG2000 is an open standard, recognised universally, and post production professionals will already be familiar with it as it is the image standard in DCP digital cinema files, said Comprimato founder and CEO, Jir Matela. What we have achieved is a unique implementation of JPEG2000 encoding and decoding in software, using the power of the CPU or GPU, which means we can embed it in realtime editing tools like Adobe Premiere Pro CC. It solves a real issue, simply and effectively. We believe video editors will soon be talking about exchanging UltraPix files.

Editors and post-production professionals need tools that integrate under the hood so they can focus on content creation and not  technology, said Sue Skidmore, partner relations for Adobe professional video. Comprimato adds a great option for Adobe Premiere Pro users who need to work with high-resolution video files, including 360 VR material. 

Comprimato UltraPix plug-ins are currently available for Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Foundry Nuke and will be available on other leading post-production and VFX tools soon. To learn more, visit our blog, download a free 30-day trial or buy Comprimato UltraPix for $99 a year.
