Comprimato JPEG2000 codec integrated in Interra Systems’ File QC platform

Market-leading automated quality control adds market-leading software codec

BRNO, Czech Republic, 17 February 2021 – Comprimato, the specialist in high performance software encoding and transcoding, today announced that it has worked in partnership with Interra Systems, a leading global provider of video QC, monitoring, and content classification software to the digital media industry. Using Comprimato’s JPEG2000 SDK, Interra Systems will include automated testing for rich 4k content in the next major release of its file-based automated QC product, BATON.

“The JPEG2000 decoder SDK from Comprimato is a great solution, both in terms of decoding features and performance,” said Saurabh Jain, Director Strategic Partnerships for Interra Systems. “With its undivided attention on this codec, we are assured that Comprimato can deliver the best implementation for any variant of J2K.”

Comprimato’s uniquely powerful approach to encoding and decoding high quality video utilises the impressive processing power of standard GPUs. This not only allows real-time processing on industry standard hardware, it also achieves the highest quality at a significantly lower price point than other approaches. It also means that the codec can be implemented as a feature of other systems, using Comprimato’s SDK and supportive, collaborative partnership approach.

JPEG2000 is widely used for high quality professional links, such as contribution (backhaul) circuits in remote production, an increasingly important requirement. The standard continues to evolve, with an IMF variant and a new, high-throughput version. HTJ2K speeds up JPEG2000 by an order of magnitude, and Comprimato’s continuing development programme ensures this can be delivered without compromising quality.

“Our goal is to maintain our leading position in encoding and decoding, rolling out enhancements as new formats and standards are added,” explained Jirˇí Matela, founder and CEO of Comprimato. “That way end users are always benefitting from the most efficient and quality-driven services. And with Interra Systems’ BATON, its customers can be assured that their circuits are performing to their specified service levels, delivering the best possible viewing experience.”

Interra Systems’ Jain added, “The inclusion of the support for Comprimato J2K SDK in the BATON solution enables high performance decoding and thorough quality analysis for pristine quality video.”
