Xilinx and Its Ecosystem Showcase All Programmable and Smarter Vision Systems at NAB 2013

10 demonstrations highlight smart real-time analytics, intelligent transport, and immersive displays for next-generation broadcast systems

LAS VEGAS - NAB 2013, booth #N311 - Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) and its ecosystem are demonstrating All Programmable and smarter professional broadcast systems, which employ Xilinx® solutions for video and Smarter Vision applications.  Demonstrations include Xilinx's Real-Time Video Engine (RTVE), SMPTE 2022 video over IP, the Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC Video Imaging Kit, and several demonstrations from over a half dozen of Xilinx's Alliance Program members.

Xilinx Demonstrations - Booth #N311

    -  RTVE 2.1 - The Xilinx RTVE, developed with OmniTek, targets the Zynq-7045

       device running on an OmniTek OZ745 board with a Linux Operating System

       (OS) running the Qt application and user interface (UI) framework on one

       processor with a 2D graphics engine running a first person shooter video

       game all while processing up to 8 streams of 1080p HD video in

       real-time. The demonstration highlights various compute-intensive video

       functions simultaneously running on the hardware and software systems.

       The video system reference design can support up to 8 channels of

       real-time scaling, de-interlacing and alpha-blending using Xilinx's high

       performance parallel processing capability.

    -  The RTVE running on Kintex®-7 FPGAs - The Xilinx RTVE, featuring Kintex-7

       FPGAs, allows broadcast equipment designers and manufacturers to quickly

       implement up to 8 channels of real-time video and image processing

       related solutions across the acquisition, contribution and distribution

       segments of the Broadcast market.

    -  Xilinx's SMPTE 2022 video over IP - This demonstration, developed by

       Barco-Silex, showcases a complete reference design intended for the

       intelligent transport of video over IP-based networks and showcases

       transmission of lightly compressed video over a 1 Gbps Ethernet network

       using JPEG2000 and uncompressed video over a 10 Gbps Ethernet network.

    -  Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC Video & Imaging Kit - An image processing

       pipeline with real-time motion detection implemented using OpenCV

       libraries processed through the Vivado® High-Level Synthesis (HLS) tool

       suite that is then being fed into a 1080p60 image processing pipeline

       that has been built using Vivado IP Integrator (IPI).

Xilinx Demonstrations by Alliance Program Members Several Xilinx Alliance Program members will showcase the following Xilinx-based technology demonstrations in their NAB booths:

    -  Barco-Silex - Booth #C4742 - Demonstration of a Kintex-7 FPGA-based

       flexible SDI to Ethernet bridge, using SMPTE2022-5/6 IP cores to

       implement multi-channel High Bit Rate Media Transport over IP networks

       at 10 Gbps with Forward Error Correction and JPEG2000 compression.

    -  CoreEl Technologies - Booth #SU10714 - Multiple Xilinx-based

       demonstrations include the simultaneous decode and display of 1080p60

       4:2:2 MPEG-2 and H.264 video streams in a single Xilinx FPGA,

       multi-stream H.264 I-frame 1080p60 4:2:2 encoding and decoding, the

       encoding and decoding of H.264 I and P frames with very low latency and

       the decoding of both video (H.264 / MPEG-2) and audio (MPEG-2, AAC-LC,

       HE-AACv2) in a single device.

    -  Cube Vision - Booth #N1918 - Demonstration of Kintex-7 FPGA-based

       reference-quality multi-viewer solutions with de-interlacing and

       scaling, along with its broadcast-quality multiviewing solutions

       featuring de-interlacing and scaling with frame synchronization, color

       resampling and triple rate SDI I/O.

    -  intoPIX - Booth #C4742 - Xilinx-based demonstrations of their UltraHD 4K

       JPEG2000 cores and SMPTE2022 JPEG2000 reference applications.

    -  OmniTek - Booth #N4323 - OmniTek will demonstrate the Zynq-7000 All

       Programmable SoC (Zynq-7045 device) video development platform (OZ745)

       running the RTVE 2.1 and showing its multi-view processing capabilities

       with color space conversion, chroma upsample, resize, deinterlacer,

       video overlay, SDI and HDMI™ video I/O host web page control from the

       ARM® processor; the other demonstrations include Xilinx-based broadcast

       test and measurement products for analysis of stereo 3D images, picture

       and audio quality and physical layer signal integrity.

    -  Vanguard - Booth  #SU11726MRVanguard will demonstrate Xilinx-based

       hardware acceleration of their H.265/HEVC encoder core.

About Xilinx Smarter Vision Solutions

Xilinx Smarter Vision solutions include a broad portfolio of building blocks for smarter systems, called SmartCORE(TM) IP.  The SmartCORE IP portfolio, developed by both Xilinx and its ecosystem, includes both hardware IP targeting All Programmable logic and software IP developed for high performance ARM processors.  SmartCORE IP can be rapidly integrated via the Vivado IPI (IP Integrator). Additionally, new IP can be generated from: C, C++ or SystemC with Vivado HLS (high-level synthesis), and now includes industry standard OpenCV libraries, which are supported by popular operating systems and software development environments.  A wide range of design kits further accelerate design productivity for smarter systems design.

Xilinx Smarter Vision solutions leverage Xilinx FPGAs, 3D ICs and  Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs. Xilinx All Programmable SoCs are considered the ideal platform for designers to rapidly deliver highly integrated solutions with real-time pixel processing in programmable logic with ARM processor-based analytics for ever smarter video broadcast, machine vision and immersive displays.
