The Alma Technologies JPEG-E-X core is a standalone and high-performance 8-bit Baseline and 10/12-bit Extended JPEG encoder for still image and video compression applications. Full compliance with the Baseline and the Extended Sequential DCT modes of the ISO/IEC 10918-1 JPEG standard makes the JPEG-E-X core ideal for interoperable systems and devices. The produced JPEG streams can also conform to the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) requirements.
In addition to generating standalone Baseline or Extended JPEG streams, the encoder can also produce the (de-facto) standard video payload of many motion JPEG container formats. Furthermore, the bandwidth constrained applications can benefit from the optionally included constant bitrate video rate control block.
The core is designed with simple, fully flow-controllable and FIFO-like, streaming input and output interfaces. Being carefully designed, rigorously verified and silicon-proven, the JPEG-E-X is a reliable and easy-to-use and integrate IP.
