The company has enhanced its Viper OEM solution with the support of JPEG 2000 codec for the high-end AV market. The integration of JPEG 2000 adds new possibilities to the Viper family by supporting higher bandwidth video signals including 4K 60fps 4:4:4. The Viper OEM solution with VC-2 HQ remains useable for applications where the video format is limited to 4K60 4:2:0.
Thanks to the JPEG 2000 codec, the video signal can be further compressed while keeping the latency below one video frame. The latency of a complete AV over IP setup with Viper including the transmitter and receiver remains very low, around 10ms. By improving the compression ratio of the Viper platform, video formats up to 4K 60fps 4:4:4 now can be transported over a single 1G Ethernet cable with visually lossless quality. The new platform includes all the features that were already part of the original VC-2 HQ version, namely, video wall extension, stream encryption, forward error correction for increased reliability, image processing features and more.
