intoPix has introduced its JPEG XS Plugin for Adobe Premiere for video editing and live streaming, which the company says is an innovative solution that significantly speeds up the pre- and post-production pipeline in JPEG XS format.
"Our plugin creates a perfect match between a versatile tool and the low-complexity, low latency codec that will preserve the picture quality" says Justine Hecq, product marketing and business development manager. "It grants Adobe Premiere users hassle-free access to 10 times the data space, compared to using uncompressed video."
The plugin allows quick (re)view of HD, 4K or 8K JPEG XS MXF files by just displaying a sub-resolution, which significantly reduces the bandwidth utilization and computational load during editing or playback. The plugin enables you to switch instantly between lower and full resolutions.
The new Plugin is embedding the FastTICO-XS SDK and meets all the requirements to switch to a JPEG XS-based workflow effortlessly: super-fast encoding and decoding, support of all resolutions from HD, 4K to 8K, a wide range of pixel formats (4:2:2, 4:4:4,…), MXF wrapping and audio support. Moreover, it does not require a high loading process: you can achieve all of this using a normal Intel or AMD processor.
With access to the standardized JPEG XS format, video editors can rely on the codec’s proven quality and features: visually lossless compression, robust over multiple encoding/decoding cycles, low latency and low complexity. Hence, now it is easy to replace all those SDI-based workflows and start streaming over standard networks using SMPTE 2110. Introducing the new “uncompressed-like” format guarantees you continued quality and low latency, but you will enjoy faster editing speed using much lower bandwidth.
