  Xilinx Booth Demonstrations:

   *     3G-SDI & Dual Link HD-SDI: Demonstration of daisy chain boards
         highlighting the flexibility and interoperability of Xilinx
         broadcast solutions for Dual Link HD-SDI and 3G-SDI SMPTE emerging
         standards. Implementation on Xilinx® Virtex™-5 LXT FPGAs
         enables transfer of uncompressed 1080p50/60 video into and out of
         a variety of broadcast applications and translation and bridging
         between various standards.
   *     Video over IP with Forward Error Correction: Demonstration of
         bridging between multiple DVB-ASI input streams and Gigabit
         Ethernet IP packets, as well as forward error correction to
         ProMPEG CoP3 based on the Xilinx® Virtex™ family of FPGAs.
         This reprogrammable platform can bridge between IP networks and
         traditional broadcast connectivity standards, ultimately lowering
         the risks involved in rolling out triple and quad-play
   *     Advanced Video Development Platform (AVDP): Demonstration of PCI
         Express® compliant cards based on Xilinx Virtex-5 LXT/SXT FPGAs,
         developed by Image Processing Techniques, Ltd. The platform
         enables a standard PC to support professional broadcast quality
         video processing. The platform is capable of streaming
         uncompressed video via 3G-SDI, Dual Link HD-SDI, HD-SDI, SDI and
         DVB-ASI connectivity to and from the PC. Broadcast quality scaling
         and deinterlacing IP (bundled with the board) will also be
   *     JPEG2000 Encoding and Decoding Solutions: Demonstration of
         JPEG2000 encoding and decoding solutions developed by Barco Silex,
         using the Xilinx Virtex-5 family of FPGAs. The codec solutions
         support DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) formats including 2048 x
         1080 and 4096 x 2160 resolutions with up to 48 frames per second,
         and broadcast formats including 1080i and 1080p. Both the encoder
         and decoder are capable of replacing multiple ASSP devices or PC
         farms and offer the flexibility to tailor to exact requirements,
         including integration of security and watermarking features.

Xilinx FPGA-based solutions for the broadcast industry recently received tremendous attention at IBC 2007 (International Broadcasting Conference) held in Amsterdam in September 2007. At this event, a high definition real-time MPEG4 AVC/H.264 encoder solution leveraging the high-performance features of Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGAs was unveiled. Leading broadcast providers such as Panasonic (Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd) and Japan Victor Co., Ltd have adopted Xilinx solutions for their latest high definition (HD) camera- recorder, designed for television broadcasting.
