Delivering 4K2K (Ultra HD) and 8K4K (Super Hi-Vision) Performance, Scalability, and Flexibility at Optimal Cost and Power

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.   Xilinx Smarter Solutions integrate high speed connectivity from the latest 4K2K and 8K4K sensors, providing an all programmable image and video processing pipeline, along with lossless encoding.

Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoCs enable the integration of metadata, video analytics and graphical user interfaces; high resolution and frame rate image processing; high speed sensor connectivity; high performance video interface and storage connectivity; and video codecs to meet the needs of 4K2K and 8K4K camera systems all in a single chip. The result is lower BOM cost and overall power consumption.

Xilinx Smarter Solutions include the All Programmable FPGAs and SoCs in addition to a suite of SmartCORE™ and LogiCORE™ IP that can be customized to optimally address your unique market requirements. Xilinx Vivado™ Design Suite with its tightly integrated development tool flow using OpenCV libraries, Vivado High-Level Synthesis, and IP Integrator provide a faster, more flexible means to go to market with greatest differentiation, lower risk and cost of ownership than alternative ASIC and ASSP based solutions.
