(Nevada City, California--March 8, 2016) Telestream
®, a leading provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions, today announced that Comprimato, a unique JPEG2000 software codec is now available as a component option for Vantage systems operating on Lightspeed server hardware. Comprimato accelerates the decoding and encoding of JPEG2000 based video, utilizing the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) power of Telestream’s Lightspeed servers. The combined solution is ideal for IMF deliveries to Netflix.
With Comprimato’s JPEG 2000 technology integrated into Lightspeed, encoding and decoding occurs significantly faster than when using traditional CPU only techniques, thereby providing dramatic productivity gains with the highest image quality. Specifically, when decoding JPEG2000 contained in IMF, AS02 or MXF OP1a media files, a Vantage system with Comprimato JPEG2000 option can reduce overall workflow processing by as much as 20%. When encoding JPEG2000 into IMF, AS02 or MXF OP1a media files, the Vantage Comprimato combination reduces overall workflow processing time by up to 12 times.
"JPEG2000 is fast becoming the format of choice for media distribution, archive and master formats," explains Paul Turner, Vice President of Enterprise Systems at Telestream. “The combination of Vantage, Lightspeed and Comprimato JPEG2000 software codec technology offers significant improvements in throughput, and systems can easily be scaled to handle high volumes of content for fast turnaround."
Jiri Matela, CEO of Comprimato added, “broadcasters and content companies today recognize that quality is critical if they are to offer a better viewing experience, and therefore win bigger audiences. JPEG2000 is becoming an increasingly important component of the content chain because of its high quality and resilience to multiple encodings and decodings. Our unique codec ensures that JPEG2000 processing is accomplished as quickly as possible, in software and on standard hardware, to deliver the maximum productivity. That applies to the various elements of Ultra HD just as much as today’s high definition video.”
