|Launch of new JPEG-LS Encoder core.|
Alma Technologies, launches a high performance JPEG-LS Encoder core.
Pikermi, Athens April 12, 2007 − The new JPEGLS-E IP core is a high performance JPEG-LS encoder solution for image and video lossless compression applications. Providing processing rates up to 161 MSamples/ sec on FPGAs, a single instantiation of the JPEGLS-E suffices for the processing of high rate applications such as HDTV. The JPEGLS-E Core is compliant with the ISO/IEC 14495-1 JPEG standard and provides the best lossless compression possible. This makes it ideal for applications such as:
» Medical imaging applications
» High-end film and photo systems
» Office automation equipment
» Printing and Publishing equipment
» Satellite imaging
The core is originally provided with FIFO-like pixel and stream input / output interfaces, but other standard interfaces (such as AMBA) are also available. Being carefully designed, and rigorously verified, the JPEGLS-E core is reliable and easy-to-integrate.
Integration of the core is made easier for developers by delivering it with everything needed for immediate use. The core itself is available in VHDL source code, or as an optimized netlist for FPGAs and structured ASICs.
