The Lici codec developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS) adapts image data streams to the available communication infrastructure and bandwidth without high image resolution or dynamic range enhancements falling by the wayside.
Fraunhofer claimed that the Lici codec allows image-by-image, lossless transmission of high-resolution images with compression ratios of 1:2 to 1:6. It also features extremely low latency, high throughput and requires little logic to implement, said the institute. That makes it possible to integrate the Lici codec into existing, programmable modules or utilise low-cost modules.
Lici is a cost-effective alternative for image processing and transmission systems used in professional production and for multimedia applications, said Fraunhofer.
The Lici codec within keyboard/video/mouse (KVM) solutions is being showcased with partner IHSE at IBC.
