JPEG XS – Image coding for video over IP transmission in production quality

By | April 13th, 2018|Categories: Fraunhofer|Tags: , , |

Fraunhofer IIS announced its first JPEG XS codec implementation for video production at the NAB Show in Las Vegas. The coding specialists of Fraunhofer IIS demonstrated the JPEG XS codec as an input format for post-production in a software plug-in for Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC with real-time playback capability of 4k60p UHD video. With ever-increasing amounts of data from higher resolution and dynamic range in videos, long-distance transmission from coax cables in studios will soon become outdated. At the same time, production companies and studios are trying to substitute specialized cables and switches for video transmission by commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components with the introduction of simple and cost-effective IP transmission over standard Ethernet infrastructures.… Read the full article

Sonamic TimeScaling Delivers Seamless Switching Between Broadcasts And Web Streams In Car Radios

By | March 20th, 2018|Categories: Fraunhofer|Tags: , , , , , , |

Imagine a car radio that keeps on playing your favorite local radio station — without interruption — when you drive out of the station’s broadcast range. That’s the promise of Hybrid Radio, and Fraunhofer’s Sonamic TimeScaling technology is critical to its success. A Hybrid Radio switches from broadcast reception to a station’s web stream when the broadcast signal weakens at the fringes of a station’s coverage area. Fraunhofer’s Sonamic TimeScaling algorithm makes the switch seamless and uninterrupted. Without Fraunhofer’s solution, web-stream playback could be delayed by more than 20 seconds, leaving an irritating gap between the time that the broadcast signal drops out and streaming begins.… Read the full article
