Lightweight Image Coding for Video over IP and Media Contribution
The Lici® codec developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS adapts image data streams to the available communication infrastructure and bandwidth without high image resolution or dynamic range enhancements falling by the wayside. The Lici® codec allows image-by-image, lossless transmission of high-resolution images with compression rations of 1:2 to 1:6. It also features extremely low latency, high throughput and requires little logic to implement. That makes it possible to integrate the Lici® codec into existing, programmable modules or utilize low-cost modules. Lici® is a cost-effective alternative for image processing and transmission systems used in professional production and for multimedia applications.
