Image Matters, inrevium America, and Tokyo Electron Device have announced a collaboration to provide an easy access to a variety of technologies for large-production 4K/8K video systems as well as for small-volume video projects. The first resulting product is the Origami B20 module, which is based on a Xilinx Kintex UltraScale KU060 FPGA.

Origami B20 FPGA module

 

 

This FPGA-based module is making its debut next week at the NAB Show in Las Vegas. The Origami B20 open architecture together with high-level synthesis allows designers to create custom 4K/8K video systems by adding differentiating “secret sauce” to commodity features including 12G-SDI I/O and HEVC, JPEG 2000, and TICO video compression by integrating these pre-validated compression and I/O cores from leading IP vendors. The Xilinx Kintex UltraScale KU060 FPGA has 32 bulletproof 16.3Gbps SerDes ports, so it can easily handle the 12G-SDI and 10G Ethernet I/O.

 

According to the announcement, one Origami B20 module can acquire and process 8K60p uncompressed video over four 12G-SDI links and output TICO-compressed video over one 12G-SDI or a 10G Ethernet link. More modules add processing capability to handle higher-bandwidth video such as 8K120p using more demanding codes such as HEVC and JPEG2000.
