Fraunhofer, NHK showcase 8K over IP

The Fraunhofer-Institute for Integrated Circuits, with NHK, has developed an IP-based transmission system for 8K television.

The system uses the JPEG XS codec which provides low-latency video via Ethernet for studios and production houses. The transmission of the data was operated on a 10G Ethernet link as SMPTE 2110 stream. The synchronisation between input of the encoder and output of the decoder was realised over PTP IEEE1588 (Precision Time Protocol).
