IntoPIXs reveals visually lossless image compression tech

IntoPIX recently developed a new advanced image and video compression algorithm to efficiently and invisibly deal with important cost and bandwidth challenges faced by the audio visual industry. Dubbed TICO, the light visually lossless compression standard is designed to have an extremely tiny footprint in FPGA/ASIC fabric, but it can also run in software applications for real-time operation.

At present, images and video are transported and stored uncompressed into many systems such as cameras, video servers, displays, recorders or mobile devices. But TICO has been conceived for use as a mezzanine compression format, to be used as a smart upgrade path to manage HD and higher resolution (4K, 8K...) workflows and frame rates.

TICO assures visual quality using a 2:1 to 4:1 compression ratio, but keeps power and bandwidth at a reasonable budget, claims intoPIX. On top of this, its selectable latency down to as little as 1 pixel line ensures absolute real-time and instant operation.

Further information regarding TICO for Altera's FPGAs can be downloaded here.
