Net Insight teams up with intoPIX to develop next-generation JPEG XS compliant solutions

Author: Platform

Published: 12 November 2021

Net Insight announces its partnership with intoPIX, the leading provider of innovative compression technology, to develop cutting-edge JPEG XS compliant solutions. intoPIX’s TICO-XS is fully compliant with the new JPEG XS standard and delivers pristine image quality and imperceptible latency within a highly portable software application framework. Net Insight offers JPEG XS standard compliant applications within its Cloud and IP solution portfolio.

Available now, Nimbra JPEG XS applications are rolling out to support the delivery of some the

world’s biggest live sporting events. Net Insight’s Cloud and IP media platform

combines the power of zero-compromise video compression with its industry-leading,

open-standard media delivery technology.

The JPEG XS content production codec is a so-called lightweight image coding system that

processes video at the microsecond level with line-based latency. Based on real-world

testing and compression grades in the range of 4:1 to 12:1, Net Insight’s JPEG

XS applications can deliver lossless quality video while reducing typical network

resource consumption by 90%. As JPEG XS is designed to scale, it fully supports

the ability to natively process UHD-4K and UHD-8K content. JPEG XS may be used

wherever uncompressed video is currently used, including live and distributed

production, AV over IP, Virtual and Augmented Realities (VR, AR) and eSports.

The media industry has embraced remote working and the enabling technologies. By leveraging JPEG XS, we as an industry can further reduce our resource utilization and the number of processing steps. Software-based processing enables content editing and

production workflows to eliminate the need to jump back and forth between

different uncompressed interface standards and different codec formats. This

breakthrough in video workflow processing accelerates the transition to

high-quality distributed content creation. No longer is there a need to accept

heavily compressed and artefact filled workflows as the compromise for moving

to distributed production.

By integrating JPEG XS into its Cloud and IP media platform, Net Insight adds yet another processing option for content producers and service providers to harness. The same

application acceleration platform offers virtualized processing across IP, SDI,

and mixed format environments. Customers can reuse the same acceleration

hardware to perform both media and network processing. The application list

includes the IP Media Trust Boundary, lossless Ethernet switching, IP WAN

aggregation, MPEG-4, JPEG 2000, and JPEG XS. All of these processing apps,

whether it is for ST2110, SDI or IP/Ethernet data are available with lossless

1, 10, 25 and 100 GE network interfaces. Reusing the same hardware and loading

new software applications when needed allows Net Insight customers to plan

further ahead and adapt to the media industry’s shift to IP, secure IT and

Cloud services.

“We are proud and to be partnering with intoPIX, pioneer of class-leading video compression technologies, to create solutions that deliver meaningful environmental and financial savings for the media and broadcast industry,” said Christer Bohm, VP Product Management at Net Insight. “The JPEG XS standard strengthens the innovation possible within content production, thereby assisting to create improved live experiences for viewers all over the world. Net Insight’s JPEG XS applications bring game-changing cost reductions to our customers. In addition to bringing JPEG XS to our latest Cloud and IP solutions, we have also invested to bring JPEG XS to existing Nimbra media networks.”

“Net Insight’s leadership in Cloud, IP and standards-based technology represents the kind of

role model partnership needed to realize the full potential of JPEG XS,” said Jean-Baptiste

Lorent, Marketing and Sales Director at intoPIX. “We believe that content

producers, media companies and service providers will greatly appreciate the

engineering excellence and innovative nature of Net Insight’s adoption of the

JPEG XS technology. We are immensely proud to partner on new solutions that can

reduce resource consumption and environmental impact.”
