The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has honoured a number of IBC exhibitors with a Technology and Engineering Emmy Award.
Video Services Forum, Media Links, Nevion, DVBlink, Inc, Harris Broadcast Corporation (now Imagine Communications), Ericsson, Artel Video Systems, Barco-Silex and IntoPix were all recognised for their work on the standardisation of JPEG 2000 interoperability.
Their contributions aided the development of VSF TR-01, a recommended practice for compressing SDI signals into JPEG 2000 and encapsulating the signals along with audio and ancillary data into an MPEG-2 TS for transport over IP networks.
The vendors have helped to develop an industry standard for light compression of HD and 3G-SDI signals for transport applications.
"Recognition by NATAS demonstrates Artel's dedication to the development and adherence to industry transport standards," said Richard Dellacanonica, president, Artel Video Systems.
