Instrumentation Technology Systems Adds intoPIX TICO-XS to their Upcoming NetVIDxs Products

With JPEG XS, ITS delivers the best image quality, eliminates artifacts and lost details, and greatly reduces latency !

intoPIX, leading provider of innovative compression technologies for the audio-visual market, is proud that Instrumentation Technology Systems, the market-leading supplier of HD-SDI video-data fusion products, adds intoPIX TICO-XS technology in their NetVIDxs products.

ITS partnered with IntoPIX to integrate the new JPEG XS standard into their product designs. The NetVIDxs line-up is a suite of SDI-to-Ethernet, Ethernet-to-SDI and Ethernet to PC video time-text-metadata equipment, transporting HD to 4K video in a cost-effective way over existing ethernet infrastructures.

NetVIDxs compresses source video in visually lossless quality at ratios ranging between 4:1 and 20:1 to dynamically fit the infrastructure capability. End-to-end latency remains below an imperceptible latency on optimally configured networks, while the transport format is compliant with the new SMPTE 2110 Standard RTP streams. This standard integrates JPEG XS encoding, PTP timing,

University of Warwick astronomers have shown that water vapor can potentially be detected in the atmospheres of exoplanets by peering literally over the tops of their impenetrable clouds.


By applying the technique to models based upon known exoplanets with clouds the team has demonstrated in principle that high resolution spectroscopy can be used to examine the atmospheres of exoplanets that were previously too difficult to characterize due to clouds that are too dense for sufficient light to pass through.

Their technique is described in a paper for the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society and provides another method for detecting the presence of water vapor in an exoplanet’s atmosphere—as well as other chemical species that could be used in future to assess potential signs of life. The research received funding from the Science and Technologies Facilities Council (STFC), part of
