Full HD, 4K2K (Ultra HD), 8K2K (Super Hi-Vision) Broadcast Cameras

As imaging resolutions and frame rates increase beyond HD and 60 frames per second, it is essential to perform real-time image and video processing in space-constrained designs of cameras and camcorders.  In addition, new capabilities are required like video analytics/metadata acquisition to enable efficient workflows and monetize content.  The traditional solution is a mix of ASICs, processors, and FPGAs, which complicate the system and drive up power consumption and heat.   Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoCs integrate high speed connectivity from the latest 4K2K and 8K4K sensors, providing an all programmable image and video processing pipeline, along with lossless encoding.
