Immersive Video Systems

As 4K/Ultra-HD becomes the de facto resolution in consumer applications, the broadcast and professional a/v markets must create even more immersive experiences targeting not only 4K, but next generation 8K/Super Hi Vision. Additionally, equipment makers must push the boundaries on existing resolutions including HD and 4K/Ultra-HD to produce hyper-realistic video that removes motion blur artifacts in fast moving scenes. The market dictates enhanced pixel quality through deeper color depth, higher dynamic range, and increasing frame rates.

In order to support these mandates, Xilinx is delivering the most comprehensive suite of solutions for advanced video system development.  This new generation of solutions includes support for 'any to any' connectivity, video processing and development boards to rapidly develop and deploy 4K/Ultra-HD and 8K/Super Hi Vision systems, and provide the flexibility to enable any media over any network.

"Next generation video system development is exponentially more complex with greater resolution, higher expectations of quality, and expanding connectivity requirements. At the same time, design cycles continue to compress as competition heats up in the professional video space," said Aaron Behman, director of the broadcast and pro a/v business segment at Xilinx. "With the release of these video system solutions, Xilinx has clearly established itself as the strategic partner of choice for the broadcast and pro a/v markets."

Most Comprehensive Suite of Programmable Professional Video Solutions

  • New Suite of 'any to any' Video Connectivity: HDMI 1.4/2.0; DisplayPort 1.2 with support for HDCP; and the new 6G/12G versions of SDI. These Xilinx developed and supported interfaces will allow developers to support the latest industry standards for 8K/Super Hi Vision and 4K/Ultra-HD systems.
  • Advanced Video Processing for 4K/Ultra-HD and 8K/Super Hi Vision: Xilinx supports advanced, all programmable video processing for 4K/Ultra-HD and 8K/Super Hi Vision through a programmable video processor provided by Omnitek, a Certified Member of the Xilinx Alliance Program. To speed up evaluation and development, the Omnitek Scalable Video Processing Suite is built into new versions of the Real-Time Video Engine, a free reference design from Xilinx that allows developers to rapidly implement a 4K/Ultra-HD video system in weeks rather than months. This video processing suite performs key video functions including de-interlacing, scaling, and overlays, while supporting refresh rates up to 60 frames per second, and allowing designers to add their own differentiated video algorithms. Multiple instances of this video processor can be implemented in a single Xilinx device enabling developers to create dense, multi-channel products.
  • Comprehensive Video-specific Development Platforms: A complete portfolio of video interface breakout boards, or FPGA Mezzanine Cards (FMCs), are available through Fidus Systems, Inc. and inrevium AMERICA, two Premier Design Services Members of the Xilinx Alliance Program. These FMCs support HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2 with HDCP, and the new 6G/12G versions of SDI. Fidus and inrevium have also designed the Xilinx Kintex® UltraScaleFPGA-based ACDC8K Platform for 8K/Super Hi Vision system development and the Xilinx Artix®-7 FPGA-based Dual FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC, VITA 57.1) Carrier Platform, the industry's lowest cost 4K/Ultra-HD development platform.


The video connectivity solutions are available from Xilinx in the Vivado® Design Suite 2015.1 release and will be supported on Artix-7, Kintex-7, Virtex®-7, Virtex-7X, Kintex UltraScale FPGAs and Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoCs. The video processing suite is now available from Omnitek and targets Kintex-7 and Kintex UltraScale FPGAs and Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs.  To learn more, visit http://omnitek.tv/sites/default/files/OSVP.pdf. The development platforms are available now from Fidus and inrevium and target Artix-7, Kintex-7 and Kintex UltraScale FPGAs and Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs.  To learn more, visit http://solutions.inrevium.com/products/fmc/index.html
