Following the announcement in March that Marquise Technologies had integrated V-Nova’s SMPTE ST 2117-1 (VC-6) compression technology into its suite of media post production solutions, the company has now added the technology to its QC reference player.
SMPTE ST 2117-1 (VC-6), is a multi-layer coding standard that utilises in-loop AI techniques.
The company has added support for VC-6 on its ICE Prime player, which can be used for QC and real-time playback of broadcast, digital cinema, and OTT industry standards on regular desktop systems.
“ICE Prime is the perfect Reference Desktop Player for any facility working with media, so the addition of support for the latest codecs such as SMPTE VC-6 is important,” said Laurence Stoll, CEO at Marquise Technologies.
“The standardisation of VC-6 carriage in MXF containers is an important step in the adoption of VC-6 in post production workflows. The ability to easily extract high quality, lower resolution proxies from a VC-6 encoded file offers significant advantages when providing cloud-based workflow solutions, and we are working with V-Nova to further exploit the potential of VC-6 in our solutions,” he added.
