Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS (Fraunhofer IIS) says its JPEG XS SDK 5.0 solutions has achieved a 25 per cent acceleration for en- and decoding of 4K/8K images on x86 CPUs, ARM CPUs, and NVidia GPUs.
The Fraunhofer IIS SDK also allows MXF support in accordance with SMPTE ST2124.
The higher rate was enabled by the massive use of single-instruction multiple-data commands and the optimisation of the data pipelines for processing, said the organisation.
The big benefit for the production workflow is that less than four cores of a CPU processor are required to carry out the en- or decoding of UHD video content at 60 fps.
Fraunhofer IIS said it is also working on achieving a better compression efficiency for screen and mixed-signal content. “With the algorithmic enhancements the PSNR (Power Signal Noise Ratio) can be improved by up to 10 dB for screen content.” it added.
