A visit to the CoreEL Technologies booth at NAB 2015 was a real eye opener for me with respect to the number of available video codecs. The two back walls of the booth were dedicated to large-screen video demos of several FPGA-based video codecs running on a variety of Xilinx FPGA Eval Kits including:



  • An HDp60 HEVC decoder running on an Xilinx Artix-7 low-end FPGA

  • A 4K H.264 Decode running on a Kintex-7 FPGA:

  • A 4K H.264 and a super-low-latency HDp60 AVC Intra-Frame Codec

In addition, CoreEL was showing an FPGA-based, packaged AV decoder module with integrated heat sink based on a low-end Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA:

Because CoreEL’s video codecs are based on programmable FPGA technology, they’re highly configurable so they can be customized to meet specific requirements.
