Digital Cinema News from NAB 2015

The digital media and digital cinema industry is always on the lookout for solutions that both improve the experience for the consumer, and simplify the production and post-production workflow for industry pros.

The first integration of lightweight coding technology LICI

As the demand for ultra HD/4K content grows, post-production and broadcast pros are challenged to efficiently transport video over available infrastructures. Fraunhofer IIS’ lightweight coding technology (LICI) addresses this by adjusting video ­streams to the available infrastructure and bandwidth without sacrificing quality. To bring this technology to the market, Fraunhofer IIS announced its integration into IHSE’s KVM extender. To learn more, check out the news release.
