Xilinx to Introduce Programmable Solutions at IBC 2012

Xilinx will introduce programmable solutions to improve system integration and enable designers to quickly develop new features into broadcast systems at IBC 2012. Xilinx will showcase All Programmable devices and software that enable flexible adaptation throughout design and into production to meet ever evolving industry content delivery and display standards. IBC 2012 will take place September 6-11 at the RAI Exhibition and Congress Centre. Xilinx will be exhibiting in booth #10.B25.

At IBC, Xilinx will expaln how engineers can boost productivity by using Xilinx FPGAs and Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs. The devices provide designers with high bandwidth connectivity and processing capabilities as well as programmable features so that engineers can concentrate on product differentiation, getting to market faster, and creating more integrated, high performance systems that enable broadcast equipment such as cameras, switchers, multiviewers, and displays.

Xilinx at IBC 2012

Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC Demonstration
Will run OmniTek’s 2D graphics core, with a Qt Linux build and a browser hosting the web page generated from the KC705 to control the multiviewer.

Kintex-7 FPGA Real-Time Video Engine
Platform from Certified Xilinx Alliance Program member, OmniTek, which implements a new multiviewer reference design that uses optimized pipelining technology to display up to eight video streams on a single output screen under the control of an on-board monitoring and operating system.

Spartan-6 FPGA Real-Time Video Engine
Reference design that performs upscaling, downscaling and cross conversion on input video streams, giving users the ability to convert between different video standards.

SMPTE 2022-5/-6 LogiCORE IP
IP cores that enable the adoption of lower cost Ethernet networks for transporting uncompressed video. Using Virtex-6 and now Kintex-7 FPGAs, these cores have the ability to transmit up to three 3G-SDI or six HD-SDI video streams at the same time over a single 10 Gb/s fiber connection.

Spartan-6 FPGA Digital TV Modulation
Platform from Xilinx Alliance Program member, Tecnoroll, which showcases modulation IP cores from other Xilinx Alliance Program members for DVB, ATSC and other regional digital television transmission standards.

Vivado High-Level Synthesis
Tool that accelerates design implementation by directly targeting algorithms written in C, C++, and SystemC into FPGAs. Xilinx will showcase how the Vivado High-Level Synthesis tool allows for easy design space exploration of power, throughput and performance with new algorithms.

Display Targeted Design Platform
Powered by Xilinx Kintex-7 devices and display reference designs from Premier Xilinx Alliance Program member, Tokyo Electron Device (TED), this targeted design platform allows makers of professional studio monitors, high-end consumer displays, and emerging display technologies to seamlessly stitch together four streams of 1080p content into 4K multiviewers, or upscale a single stream of 1080p content to full 4K resolution.
