easyDCP software suite – Ten years of enabling easy access to Digital Cinema

By | September 18th, 2018|Categories: Fraunhofer|Tags: , , , |

The postproduction software easyDCP has secured its place on the market for creation, playback, and quality control of digital cinema packages DCPs and Interoperable Master Packages (IMPs) for ten years now. Its rich functionality is not only available through the easyDCP standalone software, but is also integrated into a number of cutting-edge postproduction tools via the easyDCP software Application Programming Interface (API). Features like Dolby Atmos support, advanced subtitling options, GPU-accelerated real-time playback, GPU-accelerated JPEG 2000 encoding (Windows), advanced scaling features, extended export features, and for some years now authoring of Interoperable Master Packages (IMP) make it a reliable tool for generating DCPs and IMPs.… Read the full article

Fraunhofer IIS introduces SDK for JPEG XS image coding

By | September 17th, 2018|Categories: Fraunhofer|Tags: , , , , |

Fraunhofer IIS presents its new Software Development Kit (SDK) with optimized functions to code images with the new JPEG XS codec. JPEG XS is suited for use in production environments where high resolution image data of up to 8k/60p UHD video must be transferred via Ethernet. At the IBC Show in Amsterdam, the coding specialists of Fraunhofer IIS are demonstrating the JPEG XS codec as complete live stream with real-time playback. Increasing amounts of permanent data with high resolution and high dynamic range will briefly swamp the transmission capabilities over long-distance cable lengths in studio environments, and while using existing coaxial cabling solutions.… Read the full article
