ERLANGEN, Germany & MONT-SAINT-GUIBERT, Belgium—Fraunhofer IIS and intoPIX have launched a joint licensing program for JPEG XS-based software and hardware solutions.

JPEG XS is expected to be used within studio environments and broadcast systems to help increase bandwidth requirements as video is transported over local, wide-area or wireless networks.

The near zero latency codec has been designed to transfer any audiovisual content over IP-based workflows, including 4K, 8K and beyond.

According to the organizations, the integration of JPEG XS eliminates the need for “jumping back and forth between different interfaces and compression technologies by allowing seamless video streaming over IP-based workflows”. For the broadcast industry, the rollout and integration of the codec into professional studio environments and broadcast systems will “reshape content creation and live production for years to come.”

Three different licensing models will be available: licensing for cloud-based or any type of on-demand or time-billed professional services; licensing for any type of professional equipment; and licensing for use in consumer devices, like TV, tablets or smartphones.
