Advantech Turns Spotlight on Next Generation Video Processing Engines at NAB Show 2014
LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--
Advantech (News - Alert) (TWSE: 2395.TW) a leading innovator in advanced video
processing technologies for broadcasting, will showcase a wave of new
solutions serving growing market demands. With the arrival of 4K and 8K
ultra-high-definition video content, the emerging new HEVC standard, and
initiatives that leverage the Internet infrastructure for video content
distribution and video processing in the cloud, the broadcasting
industries are undergoing dramatic changes in order to embrace new
technologies, deployment strategies and delivery schemes. To accompany
broadcasting equipment providers with faster integration to meet
time-to-market constraints, Advantech in close collaboration with Texas
Instruments (TI) will demonstrate several ways to accelerate the
implementation of next-generation video solutions. The demonstrations at
NAB Show 2014 include:
PCIe-based add-on card that integrates SDI-3G, HDMI and IP interfaces
with cutting-edge multicore processors based on the KeyStone™
architecture from TI with on-chip ARM (News - Alert)® and DSP cores. HEVC encoding,
decoding and streaming functions are supported in this new product
which now offers the flexibility of standalone operation without the
need for an external host processor. An innovative conceptual
standalone box for fast-track development will also be on display.
PCIe-based add-on card that supports all the features of the DSP-8683
but doubles the video processing capability for higher resolution and
channel density. Full details of the DSP-8683
will be released at NAB.
PCIe-based add-on cards with the HEVC codec from TI which support
various resolutions (including 720p and 1080p) and video qualities
(such as low-latency, video conferencing and broadcasting). The new
HEVC codec being showcased provides a wide range of options in
supporting different bit rates, latency times, frame rates and
resolutions for addressing numerous demands from the market.
JPEG2000 4K DCI (Digital Cinema Initiatives) video decoding on a
PCIe add-on card demonstrating the flexibility and scalability that
Advantech video processing cards based on TI's KeyStone architecture
possess in meeting the challenges of dealing with
ultra-high-definition video content.
PCIe-based add-on cards that integrate multiple SDI-3G, HDMI and IP
interfaces for orchestrating multi-viewer and video-wall
demonstrations by carrying the video over IP.
Live demonstrations of these video processing cards integrated into
video carrier platforms will take place at the Advantech booth showing
how the integrated platforms provide ideal vehicles for both development
and solution adoption.
Advantech will also be demonstrating the new concept of video-over-IP
based on SMPTE 2022 which carries video over high-speed Ethernet
interfaces. This new method of carrying raw video data through the IP
infrastructure eliminates the need of deploying legacy video cables that
consume more space and cost when massive Ultra High Definition video
channels are required.
In addition to its own demonstrations, Advantech is partnering with
Utelisys, who will be showcasing field-deployed solutions which show how
Advantech platforms based on TI DSP technology are being used to enable
highest channel-density video streaming services using HLS (HTTP Live
the demonstrations will be showcased at Advantech Booth SU11604
during NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 7-10, 2014.
