As a growing number of consumers are demanding better video quality at faster speeds, broadcast engineers are faced with the challenges of providing cost-effective, high performance video, audio and network systems. In a broadcast landscape where trends are constantly changing, it becomes more imperative for these engineers to implement more flexible solutions in their systems. To help this need, Xilinx will spotlight All Programmable devices and software that enable flexible adaptation throughout design and into production to meet ever evolving industry content delivery and display standards.

Visitors at Xilinx's booth will be able to see how they can boost designer productivity by using Xilinx® FPGAs and Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoCs, which provide engineers 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. In collaboration with its broadcast Xilinx Alliance Program members, Xilinx will showcase the following demonstrations:

    --  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.
