intoPIX’s COMPACT JPEG 2000 Encoder and Decoder IP-cores Targets Smallest FPGAs
intoPIX (Booth C4742) is launching its customizable reference applications for JPEG 2000 targeting the smallest, 28-nm FPGA devices from Altera and Xilinx.
At the show, intoPIX is showcasing an early version of its compact solution for professional video applications in the smallest FPGA families, an area formerly off-limits to the use of hardware-accelerated JPEG 2000 codecs.
The newest reference JPEG 2000 application uses the Altera Cyclone V GX FPGA Development Kit, integrating the first version of its JPEG 2000 compact codec IP-core, optimized for Cyclone V FPGA and using also the Alse GEDEK Streaming IP-core to feature a full chain of video-over-IP transmission. This reference application uses standardized Altera IP-core interfaces, enabling fast integration in any new design. It also facilitates customization, using only those IP-cores necessary for the targeted application.
These new intoPIX compact IP cores join the company’s families of high-performing JPEG 2000-encoding and -decoding solutions, catering to the most demanding video-over-IP applications. They range from zero-latency JPEG 2000 codecs achieving less than 1-frame end-to-end latency to the new range of Ultra High Definition 4K and 8K high-frame-rate codecs.
