Xilinx’s new HDMI 2.1 IP subsystem provides 8K UHD video support enabling next-generation video capture, display, processing, and machine learning
As the HDMI 2.1 specification is gaining rapid adoption, 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.

Customers are increasingly adopting machine learning to monetize and improve workflows in diverse applications such as broadcast, pro AV, automotive and surveillance.
Xilinx said that HDMI 2.1 data rates are provided by it’s highly reliable 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 Xilinx device.
“Today’s professional AV and broadcast markets continue to demand higher resolution, higher frame rates and high dynamic range. Our customers can now implement the complete HDMI 2.1 interface on-chip, creating highly-integrated designs that can natively handle 8K processing. And customers can combine this functionality with 8K lightweight mezzanine codecs for 8K over IP streaming, reducing real-estate, power consumption and BOM costs”, the company noted in the announcement.
Xilinx will demonstrate the HDMI 2.1 IP subsystem at booth 15-D240, ISE Integrated Systems Europe, RAI Amsterdam, February 5-8.
