Xilinx is adding a complete HDMI 2.1 IP subsystem to its portfolio of intellectual property cores, enabling the company’s devices to transmit, receive, and process up to 8K (7680 x 4320 pixels) ultra-high-definition (UHD) video in pro AV equipment. That includes cameras, streaming media players, professional monitors, LED walls, projectors, and KVM.
The HDMI 2.1 data rates are provided by high-speed I/O transceivers. This combined with native 8K interfaces supported by HDMI 2.1 now make it possible to replace several ASSP's or fixed-function products support processing, compression, high-quality analytics and decision-making with a single device.
