Artel Video Systems Receives Technology and Engineering Emmy

Awarded for contribution on JPEG 2000 Interoperability standardization August 6, 2014
WESTFORD, MASS.—Artel Video Systems today announced that it has been honored with a Technology and Engineering Emmy Award by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for its work on the Standardization and Productization of JPEG 2000 (J2K) Interoperability.

The Emmy Award recognizes Artel for its contribution in the development of VSF TR-01, a recommended practice for compressing SDI signals into JPEG 2000 and encapsulating the signals along with audio and ancillary data into an MPEG-2 TS for transport over IP networks. In addition to supporting the development of TR-01, Artel and other recipients of the award also demonstrated interoperability between their products. With the development of TR-01 and vendor interoperability, the industry now has a standard solution for light compression of HD and 3G-SDI signals for transport applications.

The Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards will be presented at a reception in conjunction with the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Jan. 8, 2015.
