In comparison, a JPEG2000 compressed RAW file drastically reduces the file size while preserving pristine image quality, suitable for the vast majority of usage scenarios ranging from 4:1 to 20:1. Shooting in compressed JPEG2000 RAW allows users to manage higher image quality within the constraints of the recording medium compared to other formats at the same file size. The wavelet scalability of JPEG2000 enables to encode image features at different formats separately. As a result, low-resolution preview can be decoded, without processing the entire high-resolution file. It makes it easier to directly view and edit large video files on desktop computers. Last but not least: the royaltyfree JPEG2000 standard is already widely adopted by the Cinema and Broadcast industries and recognized for its high quality in production and post-production workflows. The new intoPIX JPEG2000-RAW IP-cores generate fully standard JPEG2000 files (ISO 15444-1) from a camera’s digital sensor in such way that it maximizes Cinema and TV production and post-production capabilities. It achieves this by storing each of the sensor’s color channels separately, prior to conversion into a full color image with an optimized and flexible rate allocation. Similar to the RAW files advantages, it preserves the access to any demosaicing algorithms, white balance, exposure and color grading in post-production. intoPIX www.intopix.com MIPI CSI2 interface bridge IC integrates de-interlacing and video scaling functions The T358749XBG from Toshiba Electronics Europe is an HDMI to Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) bridge IC that integrates video de-interlacing and video scaling. The new chipset enables HDMI video streams to be recognized and read directly by application processors and provides a quick path to other processor application areas without having to perform time-consuming processor redesigns. By providing on-chip support for video preprocessing of video de-interlacing, video scaling and video format conversion, the T358749XBG, replaces software processing and significantly reduces memory bandwidth on the host processors deployed in consumer electronics. The new IC is suitable for use in a wide range of devices, such as smart set-top boxes, smart TVs, smart monitors, small form-factor PCs and smart media players. Toshiba’s T358749XBG supports HDMI 1.4 for video format resolutions of up to 1080P at 60fps (RGB, YcbCr444: 24-bpp, YcbCr422 24-bpp), as well as HDCP 1.3 and 3D. Maximum HDMI clock speed is 165MHz and the MIPI CSI2 output video interface offers four data lanes at a maximum 1Gbps/ lane link speed. The 7x7mm interface bridge IC also supports multiple audio interfaces, including I2S, TDM, S/PDIF, and MIPI Serial Low-power Inter-chip Media Bus (SLIMbus), making it suitable for a wide range of audio video applications. Available in an FGA80 package the IC supports HDMI source voltages of 3.3V, MIPI/Core/PLL voltages of 1.2V and has an I/O of 1.8V-3.3V. Samples are currently available and mass production is scheduled to start in December this year.
