The Virtuoso TICO Media Function provides visually lossless lightweight 4:1 compression for the transport of UHD and 4K signals with sub-frame latency.

The Nevion TICO Media Function enables cost-effective transport of 12 Gb/s 4K/UHD video over 10GE IP networks using SMPTE 2022-6/7 or over existing 3G-SDI infrastructure.

The TICO Media Function runs on the Virtuoso 10G High Bit Rate Media Accelerator and supports electrical and optical SDI interfaces via video SFPs and breakout cables; and ST2022 IP video/audio via dual 10GE.

Dual hand-off on 10GE and SMPTE 2022-7 is supported for network redundancy, answering the need for high availability. A single TICO instance supports encoding or decoding of up to 1 UHD signal in each direction with SMPTE 2022-7.
This provides a total of 4 UHD ingress and 4 UHD egress per 1RU on the Virtuoso FA Appliance; or 8 UHD ingress and 8 UHD egress per 1RU on the Virtuoso MI Appliance.

Compressed signals can be aggregated using an HBR accelerator running the 10G Uplink Media function in the Virtuoso MI.
