Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium—Mar 8, 2006
IntoPIX introduces a single chip FPGA JPEG2000 solution for Digital Cinema.
intoPIX, a Belgian based Technology Provider specializing in the handling of
mass image data has announced innovative solutions to the challenge of Digital
Cinema image compression and security requirements.
Anticipating the DCI decision to recommend the JPEG2000 compression method by
some four years intoPIX started its research on an affordable solution in 2001.
The resulting single FPGA based decoder not only goes beyond all presently
defined DCI recommendations but also has the potential for an exceptional degree
of security and operating flexibility.
The principle benefit of the company’s innovative solution is its renew-ability.
As explained by Jean-François Nivart, intoPIX CEO “The choice of FPGA technology
allows us to satisfy the Studio’s and Exhibitor’s most demanding needs for
tomorrow; needs we believe will include enhanced 3D display, 4K picture size,
integrated and upgradeable security management and improved forensic marking
Informally introduced to the Digital Cinema trade and the Hollywood Studio’s at
the time of Show East intoPIX has since completed its JP2K IP product to
perfectly suite today’s requirement and, in a further benefit of its ongoing
discussion with the trade, is now also confident of introducing an
easy-to-implement 4K IP solution later this year.
Added Jean François “ We have been very encouraged by our discussions with our
colleagues in Digital Cinema over the last few months and look forward to
becoming a trusted partner to the industry now that the era of JPEG 2000 2K and
4K displays has arrived.”
IntoPIX will demonstrate its JPEG2K single chip JPGEG2000 compression IP in
private discussion with the Digital Cinema trade in Las Vegas, March 13-16th
