New Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) add power to the origami Ecosystem.
Multiple vendors will demonstrate IP integration with the revolutionary IM-B20 modular platform.
At IBC, the origami Ecosystem powered by Image Matters will show 6 demos with different IP-Core integrations from origami members as well as new hardware products: The IM-B21 from Image Matters, the IM-C21 set-top-box made in collaboration with NGCodec and the e4 appliance from LDA Technologies. All three connected by origami.
The origami Ecosystem provides design services from Adeas and Fidus, manufacturing services from Tokyo Electron Device, hardware parts and boards from Embrionix , Image Matters, LDA Technologies, Samtec, Xilinx, distribution services from Fujitsu Electronics EU, inrevium and Village Island, and IP-Cores from Atria Logic, Crucial-IP , Helion Vision, IBEX Technology, intoPIX , LDA Technologies, NGCodec, Omnitek , PathPartner, SOC Technologies, VYU Sync, and Xilinx.
IP-Cores available in the origami Ecosystem include TICO, JPEG 2000, HEVC, AVC, MPEG2, PCIe Gen3, 12G-SDI, 10G Ethernet, de-interlacing, up and down scaling, warping, de-noising, image pre-processing, and many other processing and interfacing cores.
From HD to 8K, from SDI to IP, from uncompressed to compressed, from camera to screen, Image Matters’ solutions and origami Ecosystem provide infinite possibilities to re-invent design and manufacture of advanced audiovisual systems.
“We believe modularity is the key to future-proof designs. Based on FPGA modules and with the help of origami Ecosystem partners, new product creation has never been faster and easier, leading to an incredibly rapid level of go-to-market.” – said Jean-François Nivart, Image Matters’ CEO.
Image Matters’ reconfigurable modules, together with the origami connector, take care of all the complexity common to every design, allowing manufacturers and system integrators to focus on building their own top-notch added value in video and IP systems.
Image Matters’ set of modules are organized around a selection of highly targeted FPGAs. System designers can select the most adapted module and upgrade it later to a more advanced one. Designs can be scaled-up to optimize performance and price according to each solution or application.
The origami breakthrough modular approach guarantees future-proof and adaptable hardware designs. Decoupling processing power from the application layer, the origami connector and its tremendous bandwidth creates agility and speed in hardware development.
NEW Products at IBC2017
IM-C21 is an advanced set-top-box platform integrating an IM-B20 module connected by origami. Designed in partnership with NGCodec, the IM-C21 provides a fast and affordable route to market. It is highly connected through 12G-SDI, HDMI video input and output, Ethernet and USB, and provides control with an embedded ARM processor. With the IM-C21, application development starts quickly as all high-speed FPGA design work is provided by the IM-B20 module.
The e4 from LDA Technologies, paired with IM-B21 carrier and IM-B20 module is a truly remarkable appliance, answering any customer IP requirements. This 1U sized unit features 48 SFP+ ports on the front panel for up to 10G Ethernet and 12G-SDI interfaces. The e4 leverages all Gigabit Transceivers from an FPGA to match the most demanding applications. Designers can access, use and configure FPGA resources through the network and have easy access to the world of Internet Protocol.
IM-B42 is the ultimate gearbox platform, targeting high bandwidth applications such as the new emerging UHD-2 8K resolution, and providing flexibility with its 12G-SDI and 10G Ethernet ready ports. Acquisition and transmission of an 8K signal becomes child’s play with this standard PCIe form factor board. Coupled with multiple or bigger FPGA modules, the IM-B42 is a stand-alone all-rounder carrier board delivering ultra-flexibility to the customer’s design.
