Xilinx and Leading Broadcast and AV and IP System Integrators Provide Complete, Production-Ready Media Streaming Endpoint Solutions


Powered by Xilinx adaptive SoCs, highly integrated streaming solutions are ready to ship or customized by customers for easier and faster to market and deployment

SAN JOSE, California – October 26, 2021 – Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX), the leader in adaptive computing, today announced that it is working with its ecosystem of IP and systems integrators to deliver the first and only point of Production-ready media streaming termination for broadcast and professional audio / video (AV) applications. These complete solutions feature the powerful Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale + â„¢ EV Multi-Processor (MP) system on a chip (SoC) and Zynq-7000 SoC devices, with integrators contributing to FPGA IP, media frame software and production ready products. Highly integrated solutions are either ready to ship or ready to customize, allowing customers to bring broadcast and professional AV products to market much faster and easier.

Media streaming requires flexible AV interfaces, real-time video processing, support for various professional-grade video codecs, and a reliable high-bandwidth Ethernet transport layer for AV-over-IP, all delivered by the devices. Xilinx Zynq. AV-over-IP is at the heart of endpoints and broadcast infrastructure, keyboard-video-mouse technologies, streaming endpoints, AV routers and switches, video wall controllers and devices. collaboration equipment.

Complete streaming solutions with Zynq devices include:

  • Adeas and Nextera Video IP Cores – For vendors looking to integrate a complete but fully customizable ST 2110 AV-over-IP system into their own designs, Adeas and Nextera Video provide a fully integrated hardware / software IP core set for ST 2110, ST 2059, ST 2022-6 / 8, IPMX and NMOS (Networked Media Open Specification used for system-level plug-and-play control of ST 2110 devices). All cores are modular for easy customization, allowing excellent resource efficiency while being independent of network resolution and speed, and supporting up to 8K + and 1G to 100G +.
  • Macnica Technology ME10 SoC – For equipment vendors wishing to integrate a chip-level or system-on-module (SoM) solution for AV-over-IP, the ME10 SoC is the industry’s first, complete, single-chip solution for AIMS IPMX standard. Based on Xilinx technology, the ME10 SoC transports 4K HDMI video, audio and control data over 1GbE networks and offers the only vendor-independent, scalable, interoperable AV-over-IP solution. The ME10 SoC is at the heart of the associated Macnica MPA1000 SoM, and the same SDK is used for both. This gives more flexibility and significantly reduces the cost of adoption.
  • Osprey Video Talon Encoders and Decoders – Already used by broadcasters for live sports streaming, Talon products offer real-time broadcast-quality encoding of 10-bit 4K UHD video between HDMI / SDI and reliable IP transport streaming . Zynq UltraScale + EV’s low power MPSoC implementation for H.264 / H.265 encoding and decoding allows Talon products to be fanless. Complete Talon encoder and decoder products are available for OEM adoption with different levels of customization possible.
  • XVTEC XVC-ULTRA Encoder – Delivering real-time broadcast-quality H.264 / H.265 encoding up to 4K UHD streaming over IP, the XVC-ULTRA encoder leverages the ultra-low latency mode of the Zynq UltraScale + EV MPSoC codec, resulting in end-to-end latency of less than 40ms. The XVC-ULTRA encoder can be deployed as OEM products with various customization options available.

The Zynq UltraScale + MPSoC is the only broadcast-grade single-chip codec system for 4K UHD with the lowest end-to-end latency. The Zynq family provides the first single-chip solutions to support the latest interoperability standards in streaming media: AIMS IPMX in professional AV and SMPTE ST 2110 in broadcast. Additionally, unlike ASICs and ASSPs, Zynq devices are fully programmable and can support AV streaming applications ranging from less than 1 Gbps to over 100 Gbps.

“Xilinx is excited to work with our ecosystem of integrators and bring complete solutions to market that support an adaptable media pipeline from input to output,” said Ramesh Iyer, Senior Director, Pro AV, Broadcast and Consumer business at Xilinx. “These new interoperable solutions are production ready so customers can focus on adding differentiated functionality and reducing their deployment time. The time saved in installation and deployment is money saved in broadcast and AV pro.

Xilinx is a leader in semiconductors for the broadcast and professional audiovisual markets. For more than two decades, the company has provided flexible, differentiated, and standards-based solutions that combine software programmability, real-time video and audio processing, hardware optimization, and all-in-all multimedia connectivity.
