Overview of JPEG XS
JPEG XS - Image sequences have been transmitted and stored in uncompressed form in many cases, such as in professional video links (3G/6G/12G-SDI), IP transport (SMPTE2022 5/6 & proprietary uncompressed RTPs), Ethernet transport (IEEE/AVB), and memory buffers. A low-latency lightweight image coding system allows for an increased resolution and frame rate, while offering visually lossless quality with reduced amount of resources such as power and bandwidth at a reasonable level. The upcoming JPEG XS standard will offer a low-latency lightweight image coding system that is able to support increasing resolution (such as 8K) and frame rate in a cost effective manner, i.e.:
- Safeguarding all advantages of an uncompressed stream
- low power consumption (through lightweight image processing),
- low-latency in coding and decoding,
- easy to implement (through low complexity algorithm),
- small size on chip and fast software running on general purpose CPU with the use of SIMD and GPU.
- Without significant increase in required bandwidth
- low power consumption (through reasonable bandwidth interfaces),
- longer cable runs,
- SRAM size and frequency reduction with a frame buffer compression,
- more adequate for current infrastructures.
