intoPIX Honored With The Prestigious IABM Peter Wayne Award

Peter Wayne Award for TICO Lightweight Compression Used In 4K Over IP Workflows

intoPIX has been presented with the prestigious IABM Peter Wayne Award for Design and Innovation for its TICO lightweight compression. With this game changing technology, intoPIX and broadcast equipment manufacturers are easing the transition to IP and UHDTV  in Live production workflows while ensuring interoperability with existing SDI infrastructures.

The Peter Wayne Award for Design & Innovation was inaugurated by the IABM in 1990 in memory of a former deputy chairman of the association and recognizes new products and technologies that offer a significant contribution to the broadcast and media industry. Judged by a panel of renowned specialists, the award has become highly sought after as recognition of outstanding technical achievement. intoPIX was selected for this accolade from a list of 18 nominated companies.

About TICO compression
TICO is a compression scheme, extremely light and low cost when implemented in hardware (FPGA/ASIC) or software platforms and boosting the AV transition towards higher resolutions such as 4K or 8K. It produces a visually lossless compression up to 4:1 on any types of AV content and can even support mathematically lossless compression at lower compression ratio. It is robust to multiple encoding generations and robust to bit error to be used over existing transport schemes (various video cables such as SDI, as well as over various IP protocols). It produces a fixed latency of few lines of pixels. Amongst many other applications, it is used to move UHDTV over existing and affordable IP or SDI infrastructures.
