BASINGSTOKE, UK -- June 16, 2015 -- Video application design consultancy Omnitek will be showing the new high speed ‘-3’ version of the OZ745 Zynq® SoC Video Development Kit and the accompanying Real Time Video Engine 3.1 reference design at InfoComm 2015 on Xilinx booth 3785 from 13th to 19th June at the Orlando Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
The OZ745-3 Video Development Kit, which incorporates all the basic components of hardware, design tools, IP and pre-verified reference designs to rapidly develop video and image processing designs, now features a faster Xilinx® Zynq-7045 -3 speedgrade SoC, faster 1.86GHz DDR3 SDRAM and 12G-SDI Tx and Rx for single-link 4K video. A further two 12G-SDI inputs and two 12G-SDI outputs, as well as DisplayPort 1.2 I/O can also be found on the accompanying FMC daughter-board.
The RTVE 3.1 Xilinx Reference Design that runs on OZ745 incorporates an API and an application to drive the RTVE engine from a web-based interface. The RTVE is built around the Omnitek Scalable Video Processor suite (OSVP) and includes: 6-axis colour correction; motion- and/or edge-adaptive de-interlacing, noise reduction, and resize and crop with image sharpening/smoothing. New for InfoComm15, RTVE 3.1 features 6G- and 12G-SDI support, capability for two 4K60 processing channels, a motion compensated de-interlacer, and noise reduction. The Omnitek API is also independent of the Operating System - supporting Windows, Linux or Xilkernel - allowing applications to be developed on the platform and simply transferred or re-targeted as required.
Using Xilinx IP for SDI, DisplayPort and MIG memory controller, Omnitek’s IP augments these to provide full 5-rate SDI serialise/deserialise and quadrant or 2-sample interleave support and also enhanced MIG capabilities.
Based on XC7Z045 SoC with dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor, the OZ745 runs a full web server and 2D Graphics engine for overlaying on video streams. Typical applications for the OZ745 development kit are format conversion, multi-viewers, 4K 120Hz display processing, and general video stream processing.
“We are seeing a growing number of customers adopting video processing solutions rather than standard video chips, particularly in the pro A/V market where demand for multichannel 4K video processing in video walls and interactive displays is at its highest,” said Aaron Behman, director broadcast & pro A/V at Xilinx. “Xilinx’s Real-Time Video Engine reference design based on Omnitek’s Scalable Video Processor IP core enables customers to create new 4K products in record time using our world-class IP.”
RTVE 3.1 builds on previous versions of the Reference Design that handle up to eight channels of full HD, to support all 4K UHD standards for gearbox applications that require quad link, dual link and single link SDI as well as DisplayPort I/O.
The rollout of 4K SDI/DP support on Xilinx FPGAs provides quick turn-key solutions for applications beyond traditional broadcast, to encompass medical, AV, events, military and telecoms, where the need for practical, real world video processing solutions has grown, whilst the required time to market is under constant pressure.
