Interesting. They say they have a plugin for XnView but I have been unable to find it.

It is only mentioned once on the FAQ web page (about half way down).

I haven't been able to find the actual plug-in.

Whether HiPix implements an XnView plug-in or not, the fact that XnView is mentioned in the same sentence with Photoshop is a real tribute to XnView's visibility in the graphic community.

The RAR self-extractor contains HPX_PC_Setup.msi (and setup.exe).
When I'm feeding Windows Installer with it, ...
  • msiexec /a X:\Downloads\HPX_PC_Setup.msi /qb TARGETDIR="X:\Temp\HPX_PC\"
... the following files are extracted:
  • \HPX_PC\WebUpdate3.exe.config
    \HPX_PC\HPXDecoderLibrary.dll
    \HPX_PC\HPXEncoderLibrary.dll
    \HPX_PC\ThumbHpx.dll
    \HPX_PC\hipix_update.exe
    \HPX_PC\hipix_viewer.exe
    \HPX_PC\hipix_wiz.exe
    \HPX_PC\WebUpdate3.exe
    \HPX_PC\hipix_tm.JPG
    \HPX_PC\HPX_PC_Setup.msi
    \HPX_PC\The_EUA_7_10 (3).rtf
No 8BI? The rest are just Visual Studio runtime libraries:
  • \HPX_PC\Windows\
    • \HPX_PC\Windows\system32\
      \HPX_PC\Windows\winsxs\
The .NET framework is required for Viewer and Transcoder (Wiz) to run, and the Thumb Extractor DLL seems to be nothing but a plug-in for enabling Windows Explorer to view thumbnails embedded in HPX files :?

The webpage doesn't seem to be 100% done either. I cliked on forums and I got a 404 error.

Too bad it's not an open source format.

The main issue for us is photos of hi-res coming from cellular handseta with 8,12,1nd soon 16MP, where the CMOS output is compressed using Hipix far better than JPEG-XR JP2K and WebP. We also support the following: 422 color format (as coming from the CMPS) EXIF import/export. PNG is worth nothing for this purpose (as well as for pictures as pictures). It is a great format for other purposes. We are operating in the space which is focused on EXISTING HARDWARE. JP2K necer got there, and so JPEG-XR. Show me a codec, which can encode 60MP per second on existing cellular device with 30% higher file size than Hipix and I’ll call it competition.
The files currently available for download are dated September 30th.

There is also Google's Webp format.

Oh, I see it has been posted above.
