Barco Silex has released new range of single-chip, multi-channel 8K UHDTV JPEG 2000 cores. The cores have been implemented on the 28nm FPGA’s and SoC’s of Altera and Xilinx.
“This new range of ultra-high resolution JPEG 2000 cores fitting in a single FPGA or SoC device are facilitating manufacturers to develop future-proofed solutions for UHDTV”, said Jean-Marie Cloquet, Manager of the image processing division of Barco Silex. “Thanks to the flexible and scalable architecture of our cores, we are able to offer our customers a unique upgrade path, ranging from ultra-compact JPEG 2000 HD and DCI cores in the smallest FPGA devices to multi-channel 4K and 8K UHDTV. Integrated by equipment manufacturers and compliant with several industry standards or recommendations such as the VSF Technical Recommendation of JPEG 2000 Broadcast profile and DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative), they provide reliable and unmatched quality.”
