BRNO, Czech Republic – Comprimato, a JPEG2000 software codec toolkit provider announced it is providing its JPEG2000 software codec for Nokia’s revolutionary 360˚ virtual reality camera OZO. The output of the eight 2k x 2k sensors is lightly compressed and packaged into a single stream which Comprimato decodes in software for live monitoring and responsive post production to enable dynamic rendering and real-time views of videos shot.
“Hardware-accelerated decoding was an absolutely critical part of our design specification,” said Guido Voltolina, Head of Presence Capture at Nokia Technologies. “We knew that in the real world directors and cinematographers would want a real time view of what they had shot.”
