Ultra High Definition (4K) Televisions

The new wave of consumer TVs are offering Ultra High Definition (UHD) support of 4K video today and 8K in the future. Xilinx Smarter Vision solutions provide the performance and flexibility needed to adapt to the new UHD standards and quickly get to market with the latest life-like and immersive display technologies. XilinxFPGAs and Zynq®-7000 SoCs allow integration of
software subsystems alongside FPGA-based systems, ultimately scaling solutions across multiple products.

Xilinx Smarter Solutions include the 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.

The below architecture demonstrates how Xilinx IP can be parameterized and scaled to meet the needs of multiple types of displays by integrating high bandwidth video connectivity with real-time 4K2K and 8K4K video processing into a single device.  Depending on the resolution of the display, decoding standard, smart user interface, internal display panel connectivity and external video connectivity interfaces needed, a wide variety of displays can be created, scaling across product platforms.
