Sisvel kondigt de lancering aan van het Joint Licensing-programma van JPEG-XT

LUXEMBOURG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sisvel International S.A. heeft vandaag de lancering aangekondigd van de JPEG-XT Portfolio-licentie, een nieuw programma dat is gericht op high-dynamic-range (HDR)-afbeeldingstechnologie met betrekking tot de JPEG-XT-standaard. Het programma is gelanceerd met een portfolio van patenten die eigendom zijn van Dolby International AB, een dochteronderneming van Dolby Laboratories, Inc. en Trellis Europe S.r.l.

Hoewel JPEG een veelgebruikte technologie is voor het opslaan van digitale afbeeldingen, biedt het geen oplossing voor verschillende vereisten die de afgelopen jaren belangrijk zijn geworden, zoals compressie van afbeeldingen met een hogere bitdiepte (tot 16 bits), HDR-imaging, compressie zonder verlies en de weergave van alfakanalen. JPEG-XT-technologie kan de volledige beeldinformatie (kleuren, luminantie) en niet-destructieve bewerkingen behouden en biedt echte HDR-kwaliteit, maar blijft veel kleiner dan RAW-bestanden.

Sisvel Announces the Launch of the JPEG-XT Joint Licensing Program

LUXEMBOURG–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Sisvel International S.A. announced today the launch of the JPEG-XT Portfolio License, a new program focused on high-dynamic-range (HDR) images technology related to the JPEG-XT standard. The program has been launched with a portfolio of patents owned, or controlled by, Dolby International AB, an affiliate of Dolby Laboratories, Inc., and Trellis Europe S.r.l.

While JPEG is a widely-adopted technology for storing digital images, it doesn’t address several requirements that have become important in recent years, such as compression of images with higher bit depths (up to 16 bits), HDR imaging, lossless compression, and representation of alpha channels. JPEG-XT technology can preserve the whole picture information (colours, luminance) and non-destructive edits, offering a true HDR quality, but much smaller than RAW file in size. Moreover, this technology will enable consumers to utilise details, image data, and post-processing capabilities that were previously inaccessible under JPEG. The JPEG-XT technology is also backward compatible – the same file will be readable by legacy low-dynamic range (LDR) decoders and HDR decoders.

The JPEG-XT Portfolio License Agreement offered by Sisvel covers any consumer product with image capturing capabilities implementing JPEG-XT functionality. Sisvel offers a royalty-bearing, non-transferable, non-assignable, non-exclusive license, with no right to grant sublicenses for this program. Further information about the terms and conditions of Sisvel’s JPEG-XT licenses is available at http://www.sisvel.com/licensing-programs/digital-video-display-technology/jpeg-xt/introduction or from Sisvel upon request by companies currently requiring a license.
