Nevion has announced the addition of a new JPEG XS encoding and decoding media function to its flagship Virtuoso platform.
JPEG XS (ISO/IEC 21122) is a new encoding standard for video that achieves visually lossless output at sub-millisecond latency.
JPEG XS enables high-quality compression for ratios up to 10:1 and beyond, making it applicable for low-latency real-time transport of HD and 4K/UHD video over wide-area networks (WANs).
Powered by TICO-XS from intoPIX, the function offers both encoding and decoding capabilities as well as multi-channel support.
It takes uncompressed video in either SDI and IP (SMPTE ST 2110-20) formats, and outputs JPEG XS encoded video for transport over IP (SMPTE ST 2110-22).
