Ross Video - Troy English, CTO: “TICO offers a great compromise between quality, bit rate and size to implement. We are actively evaluating it for potential future applications in live production. Ross Video likes to get on board and encourage interoperable solutions like TICO.”
Xilinx - Aaron Behman, Director, Broadcast and Pro A/V Segment: “Xilinx recognizes that demands for faster line rates to support 4K, 8K, higher frame rates and higher dynamic range means that low-latency, lightweight compression offered by TICO provides our customers, broadcast production equipment vendors, the ability to control costs of implementation without sacrificing video quality. By combining TICO with our high speed transceivers to support uncompressed and compressed paths, we can now offer a scalable, future-proof and low-risk way to get products to market quickly.”
About the TICO Alliance at NAB Show 2015
The show is taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 13 through 16. Several demos using TICO are organized by the Alliance supporters including Altera, Grass Valley, Imagine Communications, intoPIX, Nevion, Macnica Americas and Xilinx, leveraging 4K/UHD over 10GbE IP Networks or 3G-SDI infrastructure,
At NAB 2015, intoPIX is showing the TICO FPGA IP-cores and implementations combining TICO with the SMPTE 2022 IP transport standard with 3G-SDI mapping with partners such as Altera, Macnica Americas and Xilinx.
Based on the TICO compression technology, intoPIX has released first 4K/UHD 60P TICO codecs running on FPGA and real-time CPU, designed to address the move of the Broadcast industry towards a fully networked IP ecosystem. More FPGA & Software product releases are scheduled for release after the show, during Q2 & Q3 of 2015.
