AMSTERDAM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 14, 2018--IBC 2018 – intoPIX, an innovative technology provider of video compression solutions, welcomes Media Links, manufacturer and pioneer in Media over IP transport technology, among the rapidly increasing list of TICO-enabled equipment manufacturers and solution providers.

Media Links has added TICO lightweight compression to its new MDP3040 IP Media Gateway, which is launching at IBC 2018, stand 1.C31.

This multi-channel device is a versatile two channel 4K TICO compression encoder/decoder, supporting several configurations. Two 12G-SDI inputs can be TICO encoded and transmitted over dual 10GbE network trunk interfaces or two TICO encoded network streams can be simultaneously received and decoded as two 12G-SDI outputs. For delivering 4K/UHD signals over existing 3G-SDI infrastructures, the MDP3040 can function as a standalone two channel 12G-SDI input to two channel TICO compressed BNC output encoder, or as a two channel TICO compressed BNC input to two channel 12G-SDI output decoder.

Media Links’ SMPTE ST2022 compliant IP technology supports video, audio and data distribution over IP networks, replacing traditional dedicated switches and encoding devices.

“One of the big challenges for broadcasters is the bandwidth required to transport UHD/4K video signals. Including TICO in our MDP Series enables media companies to transport pristine quality video using the same bandwidth as currently used for uncompressed HD video with no noticeable effect on latency,” states Mark Podesla, Senior Product Manager at Media Links.

Standardized by SMPTE as RDD35 and at ISO as JPEG XS (upcoming), TICO is an advanced, visually lossless compression technology designed to be the standard for efficiently handling UHD content in live production workflows. Widely used in the broadcast industry, TICO is a disruptive technology enabling compatibility and interoperability between manufacturers and broadcasters.

“Media Links’ decision to add TICO compression capability marks yet another important step in facilitating the adoption of new UHD/4K workflows by the broadcast industry. With the MDP3040’s multitude of configurations it perfectly fills the gap in the industry’s transition from SDI- to IP-based workflows.” says Gael Rouvroy, intoPIX CEO and founder.
