Media Links Integrates intoPIX’s JPEG-XS Compression Tech Into MDP3020 IP Media Gateway

Media Links has chosen to include intoPIX’s JPEG-XS compression technology in its MDP3020 IP Media Gateway.

“Media Links brings deep engineering, system integration & wide-area-network connectivity expertise to deliver a new IP Media experience with the world’s best low latency visually lossless lightweight codec,” said Jean-Baptiste Lorent, Director Marketing & Sales, intoPIX.

JPEG-XS (XS, standing for eXtra Speed eXtra Small) achieves high-quality compression ratios of up to 10:1 and beyond. This makes it ideal for the edge of the IP network where bandwidth is typically quite limited and where the transport of uncompressed high-quality video is just not feasible. JPEG-XS (ISO/IEC 21122) provides visually lossless quality with sub-millisecond (<1 video frame) delay and is especially designed for latency-critical applications such as live remote event production over wide area networks.

“We are proud of our continuous relationship with intoPIX. They have co-created JPEG-XS and deliver now efficient FPGA IP-cores. The technology is poised to unleash a new level of low-latency connectivity that will transform the way we make live remote production today,” said Mark Podesla, Senior Manager, Media Links.

As an integral component of the Media Links’ common LAN/WAN architecture solution portfolio, the MDP3020 provides video, audio, and data transport to/from the fringes of the IP network.

Both Media Links and intoPIX are showing new products powered by JPEG-XS. The two companies welcome everybody to contact their respective sales team to sample the intoPIX JPEG XS technology and the new Media Links solution.
