Take HDMI video input from one display and put HDMI output on another display.

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

I am completely new to VHDL, FPGA. I am not using any hardware for now. But, I just want to do simulation on Vivado. I am really confused, I dont know where to start. Later, I want to implement the same on FPGA board as well. I have some question in mind.

I donot how to take video as a input in Vivado. Is it even possible?

If yes, then

Q1. can I use HDMI Rx IP or do i need to use some other IP?

Q2. Do i need to store video in the project directory or I can provide link to the video somewhere?

If not,

Is there any way to do it?

With Regards,

Saini

@saini,

So, my question is How I should give a HDMI Video input/ Video input to my design in Vivado not in Hardware to test my implementation.

You cannot, via hardware.

You need to find for some HDMI video signal generator which will generate the video data for you.

I  can recommend you to start with the video series tutorial. Perhaps there are free-to-use Xilinx HDMI based vdo gen IPs.

I have done such a project called HDMI Pass Through using a Zybo Z7-10 Dev Board and I did not have a design simu model.
It was easier to just connect the Digilent IPs and get the h/w fast up and running.

Hi @saini

Yes.

What do you mean ?

Do you want to recode video streaming as file from ex. HDMI Rx ?

As I said earlier, that I dont have hardware for now. But I want to test it on Vivado. So, my question is How I should give a HDMI Video input/ Video input to my design in Vivado not in Hardware to test my implementation.

Hello @saini 

Just adding my two cents.
I agree with @dpaul24 sggestion.
 
BTW, We do not provide testbench or simulation model for our HMDI IPs.
So Simulating this IP can be time consuming.

Kind regards, 
Leo
