Altera to demonstrate how to future-proof UHD systems for 8K

At the 2015 National Association of Broadcasters convention (NAB), which takes place from 13th to 16th April at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Altera will demonstrate its Ultra HD (UHD) end-to-end solutions. Featured for the first time will be the company’s multichannel, real-time H.265 hardware codec delivering a high quality full HD experience by implementing the Altera H.265 IP on a single chip with unprecedented quality and efficiency.

The company will demonstrate how equipment makers can implement UHD products today with 4K resolution, deeper colour and higher frame rates. Together with Oregano Systems, Altera is among the first vendors to offer a fully SMPTE-compliant sync solution, anticipating SMPTE’s imminent announcement of the publication of its time-labelling and clock synchronisation standards, ST2059-1 and ST2059-2, critical to delivering IP-based video transport.

The company will showcase 4K60 transport over a standard 10 Gigabit Ethernet IP network using SMPTE2022 from Macnica, SMPTE ST2059-2 clock synchronisation from Oregano Systems and 4K60 visually lossless, small-footprint compression using TICO from Intopix. Other demonstrations will include 4K60 display over HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2, 4K60 scaling and video processing with Altera’s in-house Video and Image Processing suite and multichannel configurable, real-time H.265, ultra-low latency full HD codec.

Altera architects will be available at booth SU10707 to discuss how customers can bring Ultra-HD systems to market now, and future proof them for 8K.

“Altera is proud to unveil the industry’s highest-quality H.265 codec along with the most complete 4K60 solution transporting over SMPTE2022 with light TICO compression, ST2059-2 timing synchronisation, and delivery direct to display through HDMI 2.0,” said Umar Mughal, Director, Broadcast Business Unit, Altera. “Customers can be first to market with their UHD products achieving a significant boost in revenue and market share with Arria 10, Altera’s latest released FPGA, combined with our complete, production-ready 4K60 IP offerings. In addition, customers can futureproof their designs for new features with the flexibility Arria 10 provides.”
