New Video: Zynq UltraScale+ EV MPSoCs encode and decode 4K60p H.264 and H.265 video in real time

If you’re working with any sort of video, there’s a new 4-minute demo video you need to see. This video shows two new Zynq UltraScale+ EV MPSoC devices working in tandem to decode and display 4K60p streaming video in both H.264 and H.265 video formats in real time. Zynq UltraScale+ EV MPSoC devices incorporate hardened, low-latency H.264 and H.265 video codecs (encode and decode). The demo employs two Xilinx ZCU106 boards in the following configuration:

The first ZCU106 extracts the 4K60p video stream from a USB stick at 60Mbps, decodes the video, and displays it on a local monitor using a DisplayPort interface. At the same time, the on-board Zynq UltraScale+ EV device re-encodes the video using the on-chip H.265 encoder, which reduces the video bit rate to 10Mbps thanks to the improved encoding efficiency of the H.265 standard. The board then transmits the resulting 10Mbps video stream over a wired Ethernet connection to a second ZCU106 board, which decodes the video and displays it on a second monitor. The entire process occurs with such low latency that it’s hard to see any delay between the two displayed video streams.

 

Here’s the video demo:
