intoPIX Will Show IPMX Integration in AV-over-IP Chip — This Likely Means Crestron NVX Will Do IPMX, Too

intopix ipmx ise 2023

intoPIX is set to demonstrate the TicoXS FIP codec running in many challenging environments, various processors and for various applications at ISE 2023: as CPU or GPU software senders and receivers using laptops or mini PCs, into Intel FPGA or Xilinx FPGA, within an 8K and a 4K over gigabit-based IP network and also combined with wireless transmission.

Software and hardware solutions are ready for manufacturers and integrators, including:

  • Small footprint 4K/8K encoder & decoder sub-system IP cores, available on many types of Xilinx and Intel
  • FPGA platforms to ease the design of AV-over-IP products onto a single chip, it can be combined for example with SMPTE 2110-22 packetizers, AES encryption and custom-made designs.
  • Ultra-Fast Software encoder & decoder on CPU and GPU, with also the new intoPIX Titanium Streaming
  • SDK supporting IPMX compressed streaming that is again highlighted at the show.

intoPIX offers a chip-based path to AV-over-IP, delivering what they are claiming is “no perceptible latency, easy convergence between ProAV distribution and Media production, sustainability to carry 4K (and 8K) over existing 1-gigabit ethernet networks” using the largely deployed Cat5E cables and error concealment option for recovery of any corrupted content, which makes it also ideal for wireless transmission.

The most interesting thing about this announcement is that since Crestron’s NVX AV-over-IP system uses a version of this chip, the company could allow IPMX in the NVX ecosystem in the near future. Of course, this is speculation on my part, but they certainly could add that as a feature.

IntoPIX welcomes all ProAV engineers, product managers and other stakeholders during ISE 2023 at its stand 5G140 to discover the new TicoXS FIP and enjoy all the demos.
