Advantech turns spotlight on next generation video processing engines at NAB Show 2014

Date: 4/3/2014 12:00:00 AM

Combination of ARM® and DSP cores enables standalone operation, optimizing integration costs and lowering cost per port

NAB Show, Las Vegas, Apr 3, 2014 – Advantech (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 8Kultra-high-definition video content, the emerging new HEVC standard, and initiatives that leveragethe 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:

·  DSP-8683 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® 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.

·   DSP-8684 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 and DSP-8684 will be released at NAB.

·  DSP-8681 and DSP-8682 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 single DSP-8682 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 ofdealing with ultra-high-definition video content.

·  DSP-8662 and DSP-8662H PCIe-based add-on cards that integrate multiple SDI-3G, HDMI and IP interfacesfor 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 arebeing used to enable highest channel-density video streaming services using HLS (HTTPLive Streaming) technology.

All the demonstration will be showcased at Advantech Booth SU11604 during NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 7-10, 2014.
