IBC 2015, Amsterdam, September 11th, 2015 - intoPIX, leading provider of video compression solutions, today announced that its TICO lightweight video compression technology has extended its performance on FPGA and CPU platforms. TICO FPGA-powered products can be deployed on current and legacy generation of FPGAs used in Broadcast infrastructures to support UHD/4K. The extended FPGA performances enable also to support UHD/4K at 120fps or even HD up to 480fps in a single FPGA core.  TICO CPU-powered decoder is also commercially available to equipment vendors, system integrators for HD, 4K, or even 8K.

TICO compression is an easy path to support higher data stream as UHD4K, 8K or HFR using existing systems and infrastructures. The benefits of being a lightweight compression means that TICO is able to run on low cost FPGA and CPU at very high performance and can be added in any production ecosystem bringing a high level of interoperability.  The codec is currently being deployed in Live production applications, delivering high-quality feeds with only few pixel lines of latency.  TICO magic 4:1 compression ratio sets new ways to support UHD/4K within 10GbE IP networks and 3G-SDI infrastructures.

“TICO CPU-powered provides also a new level of performance in terms of latency, speed, and flexibility”, says Charles Buysschaert, Senior software engineer, intoPIX.  “Whereas legacy codecs are highly paralyzing frames to reach real-time, TICO has the ability to distribute pixel lines across the entire CPU. This allows to reduce significantly the latency, a critical aspect of Live production.”

intoPIX (Hall 10, Stand D31d) will show TICO in actions during IBC 2015 and welcome everybody to sample this Game changing technology.
