Powe­red by Xilinx adap­ti­ve SoCs, high­ly inte­gra­ted strea­ming solu­ti­ons are rea­dy-to-ship or cus­to­mi­ze by cus­to­mers for a simp­ler, fas­ter time-to-mar­ket and deployment

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX), the lea­der in adap­ti­ve com­pu­ting, today announ­ced it is working with its IP and sys­tem inte­gra­tor eco­sys­tem to pro­vi­de the industry’s first and only 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:

  • Ade­as and Nex­te­ra Video IP Cores – For ven­dors see­king to inte­gra­te a com­ple­te, but ful­ly cus­to­miz­ab­le ST 2110 AV-over-IP sys­tem into their own designs, Ade­as and Nex­te­ra Video pro­vi­de a ful­ly-inte­gra­ted hardware/software IP core set for ST 2110, ST 2059, ST 2022–6/8, IPMX, and NMOS (Net­wor­ked Media Open Spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on used for plug-and-play, sys­tem-level con­trol of ST 2110 devices). All cores are modu­lar for easy cus­to­miz­a­ti­on, enab­ling excel­lent resour­ce effi­ci­en­cy while being reso­lu­ti­on- and net­work-speed inde­pen­dent, and sup­por­ting up to 8K+ and from 1G to 100G+.
  • Mac­ni­ca Tech­no­lo­gy ME10 SoC – For equip­ment pro­vi­ders wan­ting to inte­gra­te a chip-level or sys­tem-on-modu­le (SoM) solu­ti­on for AV-over-IP, the ME10 SoC is the industry’s first sin­gle-chip, full-stack solu­ti­on for the AIMS IPMX stan­dard. Based on Xilinx tech­no­lo­gy, the ME10 SoC trans­ports 4K HDMI video, audio and con­trol data over 1GbE net­works and offers the only inter­ope­ra­ble, scala­b­le and ven­dor-inde­pen­dent AV-over-IP solu­ti­on. The ME10 SoC is at the heart of the rela­ted Mac­ni­ca MPA1000 SoM, and the same deve­lo­p­ment kit is used for both. This gives more fle­xi­bi­li­ty and dra­ma­ti­cal­ly redu­ces the cost of adoption.
  • Osprey Video Talon Encoders and Deco­ders – Alrea­dy used by broad­cas­ters for live strea­ming of sports, Talon pro­ducts offer real-time broad­cast-qua­li­ty enco­ding of 10-bit 4K UHD video bet­ween HDMI/SDI and reli­able IP trans­port strea­ming. The low-power Zynq UltraS­ca­le+ EV MPSoC imple­men­ta­ti­on for H.264/H.265 enco­ding and deco­ding enab­les the Talon pro­ducts to be fan­less. The com­ple­te Talon encoder and deco­der pro­ducts are avail­ab­le for OEM adop­ti­on with vary­ing levels of cus­to­miz­a­ti­on possible.
  • XVTEC XVC-ULTRA Encoder – Deli­vering real-time, broad­cast-qua­li­ty H.264/H.265 enco­ding of up to 4K UHD video strea­ming over IP, the XVC-ULTRA encoder lever­a­ges the ultra-low-laten­cy mode of the Zynq UltraS­ca­le+ EV MPSoC codec, resul­ting in an end-to-end laten­cy of less than 40ms. The XVC-ULTRA encoder can be deploy­ed as OEM pro­ducts with various cus­to­miz­a­ti­on opti­ons available.

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.
