intoPIX introduces optimized Spartan-6/Virtex-6 JPEG 2000 encoders & decoders range focusing on Low Power and Ultra High Resolution

Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium -- intoPIX, the leader in JPEG 2000 solutions announces today the company’s migrating solution for Xilinx® Spartan-6 & Virtex-6 FPGA platforms. With this release, intoPIX enables its customers with a new range of JPEG 2000 IP-Cores, allowing them to significantly reduce their Bill of Materials while giving access to higher performances.

Among all new advantages, intoPIX latest solutions propose higher resolutions (up to 8K+), higher frame rates (up to 240 frames per second in 1080p), lower power consumption, lower temperature dissipation and lower cost.

“The new JPEG 2000 encoder and decoder cores for Spartan-6 offer an optimal balance of cost, power and performance that proposes to the intoPIX’ customers a JPEG 2000 solution ready to satisfy even the most demanding applications. This will assist our customers to create innovative products targeting consumer, automotive, surveillance, wireless, and other cost-sensitive markets”, said Gael Rouvroy, CTO of intoPIX. It is the world’s first JPEG 2000 codec integrated in a Spartan-6 FPGA capable to reach 1080p 60 frames per second.

With the new Virtex-6  FPGAs , intoPIX can now deliver Ultra high resolution JPEG 2000 8K (7680 x 4320) and 4K (4096 x 2160) solutions at frame rates up to 60 progressive frames per second for encoding or decoding. This also enables customers to target Ultra Slow-Motion and Multichannel applications, thanks to the processing capability of the codec that can reach 240fps in 1080p.

The new Virtex-6 & Spartan-6 based JPEG 2000 IP-cores will be available starting Q4 2009.  The intoPIX JPEG 2000 SDK to assess this new Spartan-6 & Virtex-6 cores will be available in Q1 2010. For more information, please contact

Specifications on the full range of JPEG 2000 IP solutions will be available at the intoPIX booth # 10.D29 (Hall 10) during the upcoming IBC 2009 Exhibition in September.
