Xilinx And Barco Silex Ease Video Over IP Development With Launch Of All Programmable Solutions And Design Services At IBC 2012

Stocks in this article: XLNX

AMSTERDAM, Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) and its Certified Xilinx Alliance Program Member, Barco Silex, announced today at IBC 2012 (Hall 10, Stand #10.B25) their collaboration to ease the development of video over IP solutions with a comprehensive platform combining hardware-validated IP, reference designs and systems integration services supporting Xilinx's All Programmable FPGAs and SoCs. The new initiative will enable broadcast equipment OEMs to accelerate product development and add the latest video over IP capabilities to their existing products and those currently in development.



"The broadcaster's migration to IP-based infrastructures is complicated as industry standards are in a state-of-flux, which in turn puts pressure on equipment manufacturers to implement these emerging standards. Manufacturers can now benefit from a 'one-stop-shop' for a comprehensive FPGA-based platform to develop 'future proof' IP video solutions," said Ben Runyan, director of broadcast and consumer segment marketing at Xilinx.  "Not only can these manufacturers leverage the reprogrammable nature of Xilinx's 7 series FPGAs to ensure their products can comply with changes to standards, our programmable platform can speed product development and enable OEMs to focus on innovative features and functionality."

"This collaboration plays to the strengths of both companies and will clearly benefit broadcast equipment OEMs who need to accelerate the development of new IP-based video solutions that can adapt to changes in critical standards, specifications and protocols," said Thierry Watteyne, CEO of Barco Silex.  "Together, Barco Silex and Xilinx offer manufacturers a truly best-of-breed platform that combines hardware-validated IP and reference designs complemented by the extensive systems integration and design services we can provide."

The first platform offering is based on Xilinx's 28nm 7 series of field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), which is made up of three new families that collectively address the complete range of OEMs system requirements – from low-cost, high-volume applications to the most demanding high-performance applications. The 7 series devices are the programmable silicon foundation for Xilinx's Targeted Design Platforms (TDPs) that enable broadcast OEMs to focus on product innovation and differentiation.
