Real-time JPEG 2000 decoding of 4k content

This JPEG 2000 decoding solution is created for post production facilities and small-sized digital cinema productions. The decoding is optionally accelerated by a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and provides real-time playback of 4k DCPs (2D und 3D) or sequences of J2K images.

Using this technology, post processing facilities and art-house productions can build DCP playback systems on standard hardware components. The core functionality can be integrated in other post processing software to enable accelerated processing of JPEG 2000 files for e.g. compositing or color grading.

Due to a flexible C++ API this decoder can be integrated into other host applications, e.g. for a DCP play-out system, a DCP unwrapper or any other post production tool that needs to decompress JPEG 2000 files: Just get the Fraunhofer decoder and a quick, state-of-the-art Graphical Processing Unit – that’s all you need for real time playback.
