Video Processing Cards

Real-time Video Processing for UHD and Beyond

System integrators often need to bridge between disparate protocols or convert video formats between equipment when building solutions for broadcast facilities or pulling together various A/V products for live events. Xilinx offers a broad portfolio of IP, reference designs and hardware to accelerate time-to-market and offer performance, differentiation and integration capabilities not possible with ASSPs or GPUs.

Up/down/cross converters specifically provide video processing and scaling, changing formats between SD, HD and 4K in different color spaces and aspect ratios, integrated with various connectivity interface standards such as SDI, HDMI and DisplayPort. In general, video processing cards encompass a large variety of algorithms but typically have multichannel video processing pipelines integrated with connectivity interfaces and often provide PCIe streaming DMA, to access host processing in production environments.

Xilinx and its partners offer a vast array of building blocks for all these functions, with multichannel 4K processing easily achievable on Kintex® FPGAs and upwards.
