Xilinx, a specialist in adaptive computing, is working with its IP and system integrator ecosystem to provide production-ready multimedia streaming endpoint solutions for broadcast and professional audio/video (AV) applications. These complete solutions feature powerful Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ EV Multi-Processor (MP) system-on-a-chip (SoC) and Zynq-7000 SoC devices, with integrators contributing FPGA IP, media framework software and production-ready products. The highly integrated solutions are ready-to-ship, or ready to customize, making it significantly faster and easier for customers to bring broadcast and professional AV products to market.
Multimedia streaming requires flexible AV interfaces, real-time video processing, support for different professional-grade video codecs, and a reliable high-bandwidth Ethernet transport layer for AV-over-IP, all of which are provided by Xilinx Zynq devices. AV-over-IP is at the heart of broadcast endpoints and infrastructure, keyboard-video-mouse technologies, streaming endpoints, AV routers and switchers, video wall controllers and collaboration equipment.
The complete streaming solutions featuring Zynq devices, include:
The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC is the industry’s only single-chip, broadcast-grade codec system for 4K UHD with the lowest end-to-end latency. The Zynq family provides the first single-chip solutions to support the latest standards for interoperability in multimedia streaming: AIMS IPMX in professional AV and SMPTE ST 2110 in broadcast. In addition, unlike ASICs and ASSPs, the Zynq devices are fully programmable and can support AV streaming applications ranging from less than 1Gbps to more than 100Gbps.
“Xilinx is excited to work with our integrator ecosystem and bring to market complete solutions supporting an adaptable multimedia pipeline from input to output,” said Ramesh Iyer, senior director, Pro AV, Broadcast and Consumer business at Xilinx. “These new, interoperable solutions are production ready so customers can focus on adding differentiated features and reducing their time to deployment. Time saved in installation and deployment is money saved in broadcast and pro AV.”
Xilinx is a leader in semiconductors for the broadcast and professional AV markets. For over two decades, the company has offered flexible, differentiated and standards-based solutions that combine software programmability, real-time video and audio processing, hardware optimization and any-to-any media connectivity.
