Leading up to this month's InfoComm 2023 (June 10-16) tradeshow focused on the Pro AV industry, intoPIX announced the integration of its advanced TicoXS FIP IP core into the new PlexusAV AVN4 4K transceiver, based on the SMPTE ST2110 standard. The companies said the platform integration eliminates the stress of selecting an AV-over-IP technology by leveraging a standards-based platform to offer "limitless interoperability and uncompromising performance."
Founded in 2023 by Sencore, the AV-over-IP ecosystem known as PlexusAV leverages a standards-based ethos to create interoperable, compatible, adaptable, and stress-free solutions.
As reckoned by an intoPIX press release, designed for use in higher education, large venues, healthcare, enterprise, and other applications, PlexusAV simplifies AV-over-IP deployments by offering multiple versions of encoders and decoders designed to create "an innovative, accessible, and human-centric ecosystem."
The intoPIX image processing and compression technology delivers efficient software and IP cores for managing more pixels with no latency, saving cost, and simplifying storage, as stated by the company. The platform enables high-quality imaging workflows, reducing costs in HD, 4K, or 8K, while preserving low latency and superior quality.
As featured at InfoComm, the new intoPIX TicoXS technology features the company's new FIP “Flawless Imagine Profile” feature that extends the system's JPEG XS coding capabilities, and guarantees a flexible, cost-effective, and premium path to AV-over-IP, delivering the best performance in terms of quality, reliability, and user experience, according to the company.
intoPIX said they TicoXS platform allows for "microsecond latency with perfect image quality in any situation and with any content. AVoIP interoperability can be guaranteed thanks to the use of open specifications promoted via IPMX, SMPTE ST2110 with the JPEG XS standard," added the press release.
Jean-Baptiste Lorent, director of marketing and sales for intoPIX, commented:
“PlexusAV did a strategic move by adopting our latest TicoXS FIP core. ProAV manufacturers and integrators can stay ahead of the game with IPMX, JPEG XS, and the new FIP Flawless Imaging Profile delivered by intoPIX. Our new lightweight TicoXS FIP FPGA sub-system IP cores and our software implementations allow standard-based and sustainable IP-based distribution, extending HD, 4K, and 8K audiovisual content with super-low latency and perfect quality on existing Ethernet Cat5e cables.”
Steven Cogels, global director of business development at PlexusAV, concluded:
"Backed by 70+ years of broadcast history, PlexusAV designs and manufactures customer-centric solutions for modern integrators. We've integrated TicoXS FIP into our eco-system to enhance AV-over-IP system performance and reliability. This partnership enables stress-free, compatible solutions. PlexusAV's centric design eliminates traditional ecosystem and project design constraints. Combining intoPIX and PlexusAV empowers integrators by avoiding custom ecosystems that limit innovation or require excessive bandwidth."
