4K2K (Ultra HD) and 8K4K (Super Hi-Vision) Digital Television

High-end digital televisions at the forefront of the display industry require the highest resolutions to deliver life-like images for a truly immersive viewing experience.  Integrating robust and high bandwidth video connectivity with real-time video processing enables 4K2K and emerging 8K4K display technologies. Traditional televisions are limited to Full HD resolution since there are no ASICs or ASSPs that can support the video processing required at 4K2K and 8K4K.

Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoCs  provide an ideal solution, integrating high bandwidth video connectivity with real-time 4K2K and 8K4K video processing along with system and media control into a single-device. This addresses the performance and power consumption constraints for digital televisions – while enabling equipment manufacturers to differentiate themselves with the latest life-like and immersive display technology available.

Solution Summary and Benefits

  • Highly integrated All Programmable SoC significantly enhances system performance and capability and lowers overall power for a complete television or as a co-processor for existing Full HD ASSPs/ASICs
  • Increase system performance with hardware acceleration for 4K2K and 8K4K video processing
  • Support for leading video connectivity standards like DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4a and 2.0 in the future
  • Support for a wide range of video decoders like MPEG2, H.264, and H.265/HEVC
  • Accelerate design productivity with a tightly integrated development tool flows using OpenCV and Qt libraries, Vivado™ High-Level Synthesis and IP Integrator
  • Reduce time to integration with SmartCore™ IP, specialized ecosystem IP and software, and operating systems
