Image processing solutions provider intoPIX has announced the launch of its JPEG XS Plugin for Adobe Premiere for video editing and live streaming. The plugin is designed to speed up the pre- and post-production pipeline in JPEG XS format.
“Our plugin creates a perfect match between a versatile tool and the low-complexity, low latency codec that will preserve the picture quality,” explains Justine Hecq, Product Marketing and Business Development Manager. “It grants Adobe Premiere users hassle-free access to 10 times the data space, compared to using uncompressed video.”
Proxies are part of the master with the intoPIX JPEG XS Plugin. The plugin allows quick (re)view of HD, 4K or 8K JPEG XS MXF files by just displaying a sub-resolution, which significantly reduces the bandwidth utilisation and computational load during editing or playback. The plugin enables you to switch instantly between lower and full resolutions.
HD, 4K, 8K editing can be performed with a normal laptop and network. The new Plugin is embedding the FastTICO-XS SDK and meets all the requirements to switch to a JPEG XS-based workflow effortlessly: super-fast encoding and decoding, support of all resolutions from HD, 4K to 8K, a wide range of pixel formats (4:2:2, 4:4:4, etc), MXF wrapping and audio support. Moreover, it does not require a high loading process: users can achieve all of this using a normal Intel or AMD processor.
With access to the standardised JPEG XS format, video editors can rely on the codec’s proven quality and features: visually lossless compression, robust over multiple encoding/decoding cycles, low latency and low complexity. The company says it is now easy to replace SDI-based workflows and start streaming over standard networks using SMPTE 2110.
