Village Island Makes Move to XS

intoPIX and Village Island, well known for its activities in technology distribution, system integration, product design & manufacture in the broadcast and telecommunication industry, are proud to announce their agreement to integrate the JPEG-XS technology in the VICO products, the companies said.

The VICO converters deployed in Japan and world-wide for UHD visually lossless compression over SDI, fiber and IP were already powered by intoPIX´ TICO RDD35 technology, but will include from now the TICO-XS technology option. This upgrade ensures customers access to a higher compression ratio and an even better video quality while keeping the “zero” latency.

This upgrade allows more throughput on current SDI-based installation still widely used in Japan and elsewhere, but more importantly the VICO convertors will also provide its customers an ideal avenue to realize their ambition to switch to full IP transport using the ST2110 standard in combination with the JPEG-XS compression.

The new VICO options will power higher compression and ultra-low delay with JPEG-XS while preserving the visually loss-less quality, enabling even multiple UHD 50/60p video streams to be transported over single 3G-SDI, SFP+, ST-2110 and ST-2022-6 networks. Based on the fully standardized High Profile of JPEG-XS, it will further decrease latency down to 20 video lines, and further increase the compression ratio compared to our TICO-RDD35 version.
