Altera, now a part of Intel Corporation, is demonstrating its field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for broadcast and ProAV markets at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Conference being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, in Las Vegas, NV, from April 18-21 (Booth #SU9817). Altera FPGAs, such as Arria® 10 and Stratix® with its video IP, provide the solutions that enable broadcasters to tackle the challenges of Ultra High Definition (UHD) technology. At NAB, designers of broadcast systems can learn more about how Altera FPGAs and the Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 v4 family can enable the ecosystem for the future.
Demonstrations will include the following:
As in other industry segments, broadcast applications are becoming virtualized and moving to the cloud with hybrid FPGA and Intel Xeon processor-based solutions residing in commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) servers. This fundamental shift in broadcast infrastructure will let vendors to reduce inventory costs and consolidate product roadmaps, as they move to a multipurpose, reconfigurable hardware platform.
“Broadcasters today are faced with unprecedented challenges encompassing both an exponential increase in bandwidth, and a fundamental shift in technology driven by the new virtualised framework,” said Erhaan Shaikh, vice president and general manager, Business Divisions, Intel Programmable Solutions Group. “With Altera now part of Intel, we are in a prime position to help our customers realise the opportunities that virtualisation brings.”
