  * HD-SDI and AES3 & SRC: Utilizing Virtex-5 and Virtex-4. Demonstration
    featuring HD-SDI development board ML571 enabled by 65nm Virtex-5 LXT
    launched in October 2006. ML571 supports a wide range of serial digital
    video format with SMPTE292M, SMPTE259M and DVB-ASI, including new 3Gbps
    SDI, dual link HD-SDI and AES/EBU audio format. AES3 and high quality
    sample rate conversion using a free reference design will also be

  * Video development platform: This demonstration highlights the
    capabilities of Xilinx Virtex solutions for broadcast quality video
    processing developed in partnership with IPT (Image Processing
    Techniques Ltd., UK).  IPT will also introduce the next generation of
    advanced video processing platform incorporating PCI Express embedded
    in a 65nm Virtex-5 LXT. The high quality finished form of this platform
    allows direct installation without modification. Initial product
    shipments are planned for first quarter 2007.

  * H.264 encoder/decoder: Produced by 4i2i Communications Ltd. (UK) and
    targeting Virtex-4 and Virtex-5 FPGAs. 4i2i Communications will present
    a Main Profile HD H.264 Baseline Profile encoder streaming compressed
    video over RTP to an HD H.264 High Profile decoder. Both the encoder
    and decoder run on the ADM-XRC platform from Alpha Data.

  * Video over IP: Highlighting the embedded features of the Virtex-4
    platform including high speed I/O, Ethernet MACs and high performance
    processors, the new Video-over-IP reference designs provide a flexible
    and highly integrated bridge between multiple DVB-ASI streams and
