FMC quadruples video throughput & processing
To enable 4k60p video, Inrevium’s Xilinx-targeted FMC has utilised MACOM’s 12G-SDI Chipset. Supporting the 12G-SDI standard, the FMC quadruples the video throughput and processing that can be achieved on a single card. The FMC, which was developed with Fidus Systems, will be exhibited by MACOM at IBC 2014 in booth 8.C01 (Hall 8) of the RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre in Amsterdam.
“12G-SDI is the next node on the evolution of the SDI standard. By entering into collaboration, Xilinx can now offer customers the ability to process 4k60p images with a single link connection, dramatically increasing the amount of video processing that can be achieved on a single card,” said Gary Shah, VP of Marketing, High Performance Analog, MACOM. “We are excited to deliver solutions that enable the broadcast industry to migrate to higher resolutions.”
“Our customers are developing 4k60p systems using Xilinx All Programmable FPGA and SoC devices. MACOM’s 12G-SDI components along with the Fidus/Inrevium 12G-SDI FMC provide a development platform that enables customers to process their video content through a single link,” said Aaron Behman, Segment Lead for the Broadcast Business, Xilinx.
