Visitors to the IBC exhibition in Amsterdam (September 13–17, 2019) will be able to experience the latest updates to Fraunhofer IIS’ moving picture technologies at the Fraunhofer booth B.80 in hall 8. They will have the opportunity to see how JPEG XS video streams are captured and livestreamed over an IP link based on the Fraunhofer SDK, and to try out the latest version of the easyDCP post-production software that offers several new features.
JPEG XS, the new mezzanine video codec standard targeting the highest quality for slight compression ratios at low complexity and low latency, addresses the broadcast industry’s need to send production feeds over multiple Ethernet-based links. It offers visually lossless quality while reducing the amount of data by a factor of 2 to 12. An SDK (software development kit) for encoding and decoding JPEG XS in real time is available for Windows and Linux and can be licensed from Fraunhofer IIS. At IBC 2019, Fraunhofer IIS will demonstrate the use of the SDK in a software-based real-time encoding and decoding solution by capturing and livestreaming a video stream over an IP link.
At its IBC booth, Fraunhofer will also showcase the post-production software easyDCP, which has secured its place on the market for the creation, playback and quality control of Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs) and Interoperable Master Packages (IMPs) for more than ten years. Meanwhile, more than 1,800 post-production houses and customers worldwide use the easyDCP tools that are not only available as a standalone version, but also as plug-ins for well-known post-production software such as Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, SAM Pablo Rio, Apple Final Cut Pro X and AutoDesk Flame. New features of the easyDCP standalone tools include Dolby Vision support as well as TTML rendering, sign language integration, ProRes IMF, IMF segments and marker support and a Final Cut Pro bridge.
In addition to the IBC show, you can also connect with Fraunhofer IIS at the “Preserving movies with IMF” workshop at the Eye Film Museum in Amsterdam on September 13, 2019. The workshop is chaired by Siegfried Foessel, head of the Moving Picture Technologies department at Fraunhofer IIS and speaker for the Fraunhofer Alliance Digital Media.
