intoPIX JPEG 2000 technology adopted by NHK Engineering Services for Developing a compact 4K high-resolution outdoor acquisition system

November 14, 2011 | Hogan Keyser
Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium - intoPIX - the leading provider of JPEG 2000 compression
solutions - has cooperated with NHK Engineering Services, Inc. (Japan) in the development
of a JPEG 2000 encoding technology for 4K high-resolution image acquisition.

intoPIX JPEG 2000 FPGA based IP-cores enable 4K image compression (4 times the
resolution of HDTV) into a single JPEG2000 code stream in real-time and without any tiling.

NHK Engineering Services has already developed a "JPEG 2000 outdoor acquisition system
for 4K high-resolution images" that makes the acquisition as easy as if it was HDTV images.
It has been utilized during the acquisition of high-speed running scenes (using a vehicle-mounted system) and the live broadcast of cardiac surgery.

The technology developed by NHK Engineering Services in collaboration with intoPIX enables
a more compact and easier system for the outdoor acquisition of 4K high-resolution images.
NHK Engineering Services will continue to expand the features of this technology and is
planning to make full use of JPEG 2000 characteristics, such as its scalability.

This technology will be presented at the intoPIX Island booth (No. 7301 in Hall 7), at InterBEE 2011 in Japan, November 16-18.
