Net Insight has announced the launch of JPEG XS applications for the Nimbra 600 and Nimbra 1000. Based on industry partnership, the latest Nimbra software update fully leverages intoPIX’s cutting-edge video compression technology. Nimbra-accelerated JPEG XS is presently rolling out in support of major live events, mainly sports, where low latency and high quality are required.
The addition of JPEG XS video compression to the Nimbra 600 and Nimbra 1000 platforms represents a breakthrough for media network operators and distributed production workflows. Compared to uncompressed video, the new solution delivers imperceptible delay, lossless image quality and a massive reduction in networking and compute resources.
For cloud-centric media networks, JPEG XS offers a portable, interoperable and cost-efficient way to access and process content in its original quality. It adds functionality to existing Nimbra products and is available as a single function or as an addition to existing installations.
Combined with Net Insight’s open-standard media delivery technology, this allows content owners and producers the ability to innovate without risk for vendor-specific limitations. By offering JPEG XS Net Insight is broadening its solution portfolio on a highly competitive broadcast media market.
“We are excited to be launching our standards-compliant JPEG XS platform update and introducing yet another innovation in distributed live content production,” said Christer Bohm, VP Product Management at Net Insight. “This is the beginning of an exciting journey to provide cutting-edge, zero-compromises compression technology that will revolutionize live video experiences — while minimizing financial and environmental costs. We are extremely pleased to see JPEG XS being adopted and standardized across the broadcasting industry. There is considerable potential to realize, and we look forward to delivering reliable, open and innovative JPEG XS solutions to our customers.”
