Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) has unveiled the industry's first implementation of real-time HD JPEG 2000 codec on a multicore digital signal processor (DSP). Four TI TMS320C6678 multicore DSPs with JPEG 2000 codecs are available on TI's design network member, Advantech. The new DSPC-8681E half-length PCI express card from Advantech is ideal for processing intensive, power efficient applications in industries such as broadcast and digital cinema. JPEG 2000 is an image compression codec offering significant flexibility and performance increases over previous versions.

With the JPEG 2000 codec running as a real-time application across four TI C6678 DSPs simultaneously, Advantech's low-cost DSPC-8681E video engine can support 2K/4K resolution video encoding/decoding at an extremely low power consumption of 54W. Because TI's C6678 DSP is entirely software based, switching codecs and parameters is seamless for developers, unlike on a FPGA. The flexibility of this new solution allows broadcast and digital cinema developers to easily design applications. It also reduces developers' costs by 50 percent.

To further ease development, TI's C6678 multimedia solution includes a comprehensive portfolio of video codecs, including the real-time JPEG 2000 codec. TI's C6678 multimedia solution is also ideal for applications in the video surveillance, medical and mission critical industries.
