AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS: Altera Corp. announced that is demonstrating broadcast solutions at its booth (1.F13) in the RAI Convention Centre at the International Broadcast Conference (IBC) 2014 in Amsterdam from September 12 to 16.
Altera is showcasing solutions supporting the industry’s migration to an affordable IP-enabled ultra-high-definition (UHD) and high-definition (HD) infrastructure on Altera FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) and SoCs. Altera Generation 10 FPGAs and SoCs enable equipment manufacturers to quickly get to market with systems capable of handling the complex requirements of providing UHD with “better pixels” with more contrast, deeper colors, and higher frame rates over a deterministic and media-aware IP-based network.
Altera IBC booth demos include:
* A first-in-FPGA SMPTE 2059 solution integrated with a scalable SMPTE 2022 solution allowing for the precise synchronization and reliable transport of uncompressed or compressed A/V streams over an IP-enabled UHD infrastructure, a collaboration between Altera, Oregano and Macnica.
* A first-in-FPGA H.265 (HEVC) codec-on-chip, targeted for low-delay applications with all encoding and decoding handled by a single FPGA.
* UHD video connectivity with a multi-rate 12G SDI solution which prepares equipment makers for the coming SMPTE standard enabling long distance transport of UHD signals over standard coaxial cable.
* A first-in-FPGA solution for HDMI 2.0 demonstrating Altera’s continued leadership with reliable, interoperable display interface solutions, following the delivery of the industry’s only fully-compliant DisplayPort 1.2 FPGA IP solution.
