Silex Inside has further extended its Audio/Video over IP OEM boards series with the support of JPEG 2000 encoding and decoding. The integration of JPEG 2000 in Viper OEM solution adds new possibilities by supporting higher bandwidth video signals including 4K 60fps 4:4:4.
The JPEG 2000 codec has applications in digital cinema, broadcast and defense applications and matches very well the high-end AV market.
“The Viper OEM solution with VC-2 HQ remains usable for applications where the video format is limited to 4K60 4:2:0. WIth the JPEG 2000 codec, the video signal can further be compressed, allowing video formats up to 4K 60fps 4:4:4 to be transported over a single 1G Ethernet cable with visually lossless quality, allowing lesser network infrastructure costs”, claims the company.
Network infrastructure cost is then much lower than comparable solutions requiring 10G Ethernet cabling and switching. 1G Ethernet cabling remains today the most affordable and widespread connectivity solution in many environments such as corporate, residential and industrial.
“Thanks to the JPEG 2000 codec, the video signal can be further compressed while keeping the latency below one video frame. The latency of a complete AV over IP setup with Viper including the transmitter and receiver remains very low, around 10 ms”, according to the announcement.
The new Viper platform is hoped to enable customers to build quality products meeting the needs of the AV industry. It is now ready for customer testing and integration.
