Xilinx has launched video over IP connectivity solutions to address the industry’s transition to all IP based networks.
The new connectivity solutions enable any media over any network for the broadcast and pro a/v markets.
The company defines and deploys video over IP protocols for contribution and distribution networks with the provision of the SMPTE ST 2022-1,2 and SMPTE ST-2022 5.6 IP cores and reference designs.
To recover lost packets and to provide robustness in media transmission, these cores offer optional Forward Error Correction (FEC) and encapsulate multiple compressed JPEG 2000 or MPEG transport streams (MPEG-TS) or uncompressed SDI streams onto 1Gb and 10Gb Ethernet networks.
The new solution also protects switching standard by supporting SMPTE ST 2022-7 seamless.
Xilinx’s new Video over IP cores and reference designs are available with Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGAs and Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs, using FPGA Mezzanine Cards (FMCs) from Xilinx Alliance Members, inrevium AMERICA and Faster Technology.
The IP cores and reference designs developed by Xilinx enable the distribution of video sync signals over IP and generate clocks and timestamps for remote video sources.
Xilinx, a provider of programmable FPGAs, SoCs and 3D ICs, has developed IP cores and reference designs to address timing and synchronization techniques and are implemented in the emerging broadcast draft standards SMPTE ST 2059-1 and -2.
Video Services Forum validated the compliance of new Video over IP cores and reference designs.
“A Xilinx device in conjunction with an Ethernet PHY offers a firmware upgradeable Video over IP platform that supports any media over any network, with cores and reference designs enabling fast time-to-market and low risk deployment,” said Robert Green, senior manager broadcast and pro a/v business segment at Xilinx.
Last month, Xilinx launched 100G IEEE 802.3bj Reed-Solomon FEC (RS-FEC) IP for data center, service provider and enterprise applications – enabling optical solutions such as SR4, CWDM4, PSM4 or ER4f.
