Fraunhofer IIS introduces its JPEG XS ultra-low-latency software implementation at NAB 2022

The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS announces its ultra-low-latency software implementation of JPEG XS on DELTACAST´s video I/O solution with a latency far below one frame. This will allow broadcast equipment developers and implementers to benefit from JPEG XS in terms of low latency but also low complexity within their devices and equipment. It will boost the possibility to transmit extremely high-quality images and videos over IP and to set up collaborative, remote processes within a broadcast or professional video production environment.

Erlangen, Germany; Mont-Saint-Guibert, Belgium; London, UK: Fraunhofer IIS and intoPIX, the main JPEG XS standard patent holders, announce the creation and availability of a JPEG XS patent pool administered by Vectis IP. The new pool enables manufacturers, developers, and implementers to efficiently license JPEG XS standard essential patents using the framework of fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory licensing. JPEG XS is the new lightweight low latency codec that can be used to improve connectivity in video workflows.
