Multichannel JPEG XS Encode/Decode SMPTE ST 2110 Application for XIP-3911 and XIP-3901

The XIP-3901-JPEG-XS application supports multiple channels of HD and UHD encoding/decoding between SMPTE ST 2110-20 uncompressed video and SMPTE ST 2110-22 high-quality compressed video using the JPEG XS standard. The application provides a low-latency encoding side. An optional SMPTE ST 2110 stream alignment is available on the decoding side to match production studio equipment top-of-frame reference, if needed. Network connectivity is enabled with dual 25 GbE I/O for full SMPTE ST 2022-7 redundancy.

Based on open standards, this IP edge application is compliant with the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards and the JT-NM TR-1001 technical recommendation for easy integration in a broadcast...

Technical Brief

Production in today’s world has become increasingly complex and expensive. While the cost of media rights has soared to record highs, the demand for new content has also increased. Producing this content has also
become more expensive. UHD and HDR formats have become a requirement for premiere content, while
concerns over ecological sustainability and health measures have made remote production more and more
commonplace. As a result, broadcasters have been driven to lower the cost of productions, and make more
content available at a lower price, often using a remote production crew.
