Available now, Nimbra JPEG XS applications are rolling out to support the delivery of some the world’s biggest live sporting events. Net Insight’s Cloud and IP media platform combines the power of zero-compromise video compression with its industry-leading, open-standard media delivery technology.
The JPEG XS content production codec is a so-called lightweight image coding system that processes video at the microsecond level with line-based latency. Based on real-world testing and compression grades in the range of 4:1 to 12:1, Net Insight’s JPEG XS applications can deliver lossless quality video while reducing typical network resource consumption by 90%. As JPEG XS is designed to scale, it fully supports the ability to natively process UHD-4K and UHD-8K content. JPEG XS may be used wherever uncompressed video is currently used, including live and distributed production, AV over IP, Virtual and Augmented Realities (VR, AR) and eSports.
The media industry has embraced remote working and the enabling technologies. By leveraging JPEG XS, we as an industry can further reduce our resource utilization and the number of processing steps. Software-based processing enables content editing and production workflows to eliminate the need to jump back and forth between different uncompressed interface standards and different codec formats. This breakthrough in video workflow processing accelerates the transition to high-quality distributed content creation. No longer is there a need to accept heavily compressed and artefact filled workflows as the compromise for moving to distributed production.
By integrating JPEG XS into its Cloud and IP media platform, Net Insight adds yet another processing option for content producers and service providers to harness. The same application acceleration platform offers virtualized processing across IP, SDI, and mixed format environments. Customers can reuse the same acceleration hardware to perform both media and network processing. The application list includes the IP Media Trust Boundary, lossless Ethernet switching, IP WAN aggregation, MPEG-4, JPEG 2000, and JPEG XS. All of these processing apps, whether it is for ST2110, SDI or IP/Ethernet data are available with lossless 1, 10, 25 and 100 GE network interfaces. Reusing the same hardware and loading new software applications when needed allows Net Insight customers to plan further ahead and adapt to the media industry’s shift to IP, secure IT and Cloud services.
