Artel Integrates JPEG2000 Compression Capabilities into DigiLink
DigiLink’s integrated solution takes an uncompressed HD-SDI signal and compresses the signal using intoPix JPEG2000 core, then encapsulates the compressed video along with the audio and all ancillary data into industry standard MPEG-2 TS and DVB-ASI.
“intoPIX is positioned at the leading edge of JPEG2000 compression technology development within the markets it serves. intoPIX’s JPEG2000 product range is developed with a constant attention to provide key improvements to the broadcast production workflow. Our commitment to deliver solutions that outperform the standards in terms of low-latency, image quality, and resolution is appreciated by our new partner Artel Video Systems”, said Katty Van Mele, Director of intoPIX Business Development.
“Bandwidth utilization has become a challenge as broadcasters and video service providers look to exploit existing IP and satellite networks for transporting contribution quality video signals. To address this challenge our industry is embracing JPEG2000 with its low latency and intra-frame compression as the best solution,” said Richard Dellacanonica, President of Artel Video Systems. “In developing our solution, we chose the intoPIX core as it has rapidly become the industry standard. We then chose MPEG-2 TS and DVB-ASI as the transport median to support existing infrastructures. Integrating JPEG2000 compression and transport into DigiLink provides a low cost, reliable, and simple to deploy solution for transporting HD-SDI across limited bandwidth networks.”
