IP has arrived and is here to stay. Next to reduced complexity and increased agility, one of the greatest advantages of moving to IP is cost reduction - the simple usage of COTS IP switches and cables. However, with new imaging technologies like 4K, high framerates, and HDR, we have more pixels to manage, store and transport.

As an uncompressed essence, this requires 10GbE workflows for HD, 25GbE for 4K, and even more for future 8K workflows. Currently, the industry is struggling to upgrade their infrastructures to handle 4K video, which at 60fps, 4:2:2, and 10bit requires nearly 12Gbps. With 8K on the verge, a future-proof solution has to be found.

What if technology could help? Help to easily manage more pixels over limited bandwidth. Help to safeguard latency? All with pixel perfect quality?

The following whitepaper will explain how and why the new ISO JPEG XS in combination with part 22 of SMPTE ST 2110 for compressed video streams will address and solve exactly these points.

Further content of the whitepaper will be:

- The standardisation roadmap
From the call for proposal, over the selection of TICO RDD35, to publications and first implementations at NAB 2019 - this is how JPEG XS came to life.

- The rigorous ISO quality assessment of JPEG XS
The “Flicker-test” (ISO/IEC 29170-2) method for near-lossless quality assessment on both natural & synthetic images.

- A comparison to other compression technologies
How does JPEG XS compare to established standards like JPEG 2000 or inter-frame technologies.

- An enlistment of platforms and formats covered by JPEG XS
From FPGA IP-cores to Software Development Kits for GPU and CPU, this is how you can implement JPEG XS.

- Example bitrates and bandwidth-efficient workflows
A detailed table showing example bitrates at various resolutions and fps, plus the resulting infrastructure requirements.

Take-Aways from this Presentation
A detailed breakdown of the new JPEG XS standard and its impact on the broadcast industry. Attendees will find out how the new technology compares to other compression methods and uncompressed and how it can lead to bandwidth-efficiency in SMPTE ST 2110 workflows. It will educate about the innovative advancements in video coding and provoke thoughts about the future of compressed video in broadcast workflows. It may also convince IP-skeptics of further advantages that JPEG XS adds to IP workflows.
