Photron deploys EVS Neuron Compress in a Japanese broadcaster’s infrastructure to support JPEG XS
Photron, the channel partner based in Japan from EVS, has recently announced that a Japanese broadcast network has selected EVS Neuron Compress to support their JPEG XS encoding and decoding needs.
With a compression ratio up to 12:1 and higher JPEG XS codec is ideal for use on low latency and bandwidth-constrained demands like live productions over local and wide area networks (LAN and WAN).
Naoya Yoshimi, Team Leader of Marketing & Sales of the Video Solution Business Unit at Photron said: “We were looking for a JPEG XS compression solution that would allow our customers to better handle their media processing needs and that would give them the proper foundations to grow into full IP infrastructures. We selected EVS’ Neuron Compress as we were impressed with the outstanding density and low latency measurements as well as the high potential it demonstrated during our initial assessments.”
EVS Neuron Compress is the last product line to be made available within EVS’ multi-functional processing platform, EVS Neuron. EVS Neuron is made for connect IP infrastructures and can perform any of the real-time processing tasks a broadcaster needs in both SDI and IP domains. By adding JPEG XS compression EVS is adapting to various IP environments. EVS Neuron Compress can be enhanced with an SDI I/O module as an option and, also, acting as bridge or gateway.
“While the PoC version of EVS Neuron Compress can already encode 4 and decode 4 full HD channels – and vice versa- simultaneously, the product’s roadmap shows we plan to triple number of encoders and decoders as well as enable the support of UHD streams in the near future,” said Jean-Pierre Nouws, Solutions Manager at EVS.
