TICO Alliance Aligns with Broadcast Industry's Transformation and JT-NM Roadmap at IBC 2018


Multi-member demonstration, TICO moving to JPEG-XS standardization
and new member Adeas round up show news

The TICO Alliance announced today that it will be displaying multiple
technology demos with several members on their booth at IBC 2018 (Hall
10 D31), September 13th to 18th, RAI Amsterdam.

With the upcoming ISO standardization of TICO as JPEG-XS, the Alliance
is growing in line with the broadcast industry's transition. As
visualized in the JT-NM roadmap of networked media open
interoperability, by this year's IBC show a point of maturity has been
reached hybrid SDI over IP workflows, and step II. "Elementary flows" is
in full progress, a year after the publication of the ST2110 standards.

TICO technology, currently specified as SMPTE RDD35 & under
standardization as JPEG-XS, is in line with the ongoing work on SMPTE's
ST2110 part 22, defining the transport of compressed video over
professional media networks to create bandwidth efficient workflows.
Already today, the members are able to serve lossless quality and will
be able to even bring further compression efficiency in the future -
still with only a few microseconds of latency.

Industry-leading vendors and broadcasters will gather at the TICO
Alliance booth at IBC 2018 to feature equipment displays and product
demonstrations that emphasize TICO's benefits in SDI, SMPTE ST2022-6 and
ST2110 workflows and discuss the ongoing JPEG-XS standardization. "It is
exciting to see all the companies that have embraced the TICO Alliance's
approach to enable broadcasters to use COTS infrastructures," says
Jean-Baptiste Lorent.

As more and more companies deliver TICO interoperable products and
broadcasters are increasingly adopting the tool in their workflows, new
companies opt for the TICO Alliance. Most recently, the Alliance
welcomed Dutch design house Adeas to its growing list of 45+ members.
Throughout the whole show Alliance members will be on sight to discuss
their TICO implementations and the technology's benefits with visitors.
