JPEG XS for media production on IP-based workflows - real-time software based en-/decoding available
JPEG XS is a new mezzanine video codec standard targeting highest quality for slight compression ratios at low complexity and low latency. It addresses the needs of the broadcast industry to send production feeds over multiple Ethernet based links and offers visually lossless quality while reducing the amount of data by a factor of 2 to 12. A SDK (Software Development Kit) for en- and decoding of JPEG XS in real time is available for Windows and Linux and can be licensed from Fraunhofer. At IBC 2019, Fraunhofer IIS demonstrates the usage of the SDK in a software based real-time en- and decoding solution by capturing and live-streaming a video stream over an IP link.
