JPEG XS... This Isn't Last Century's JPEG

High-Quality UHD Over Standard Network Connections — with Low Latency

As the world meets the simultaneous challenges of producing in higher resolutions, such as UHD, higher frame rates and more simultaneous streams — while also producing more content remotely over IP networks — traditional codecs primarily designed for improving compression ratios with quality and latency being secondary are no longer the best solutions.

The primary goal of JPEG XS was to create a standardized compression format that could reliably replace uncompressed video without sacrificing not only quality, but also minimizing encode and decode latency, plus reducing the complexity of implementation. This simplifies integration into existing broadcast equipment, seamlessly replacing uncompressed video at reduced bandwidth.

Top 5 things you should know about JPEG XS

JPEG XS can be used anywhere uncompressed video over IP is used today. The low latency nature of JPEG XS encoding and decoding lends itself particularly well to live production applications. The ability to compress video to a tenth of its size without compromising quality means that broadcasters can save on bandwidth costs, particularly when many live feeds need to be sent to a central location for production. In any environment where production is being performed over IP networks in a distributed way, JPEG XS allows technical directors, operators and production staff of all kinds to be located anywhere without worrying about delays. At 10:1 compression, video quality is visually lossless and latency is negligible.

Grass Valley’s JPEG XS workflow enables broadcasters to have much more freedom to generate content for remote production safely, and to get greater usage out of their infrastructure investments. A standardized IP-based compressed workflow gives the broadcaster the ability to scale their productions easily, quickly switch between formats and effectively increase the quality and quantity of their productions at a reduced cost.

Overview of JPEG XS

Excerpt: The JPEG XS (ISO/IEC 21122) standard specifies a compression technology with an end-to-end latency of a few lines, at a low implementation complexity. For example, this allows hardware implementations that do not require external memory. Its design offers various degrees of parallelism allowing for efficient implementation on various platforms such as FPGAs, ASICs, CPUs and GPUs. In addition, JPEG XS excels with high multi-generation robustness and is particularly optimized for visual lossless compression as defined in ISO/IEC 29170-2 for both natural and synthetic images...
