Altera Corporation Announces Arria V FPGAs

Altera Corporation announced its Arria V FPGAs are delivering the high performance needed for Dolby Laboratories' innovative Dolby Vision imaging technology for ultra-high definition displays. The Dolby Vision value proposition is to deliver a dramatically different visual experience to TV displays, enabling content creators and television manufacturers to deliver greater brightness while also providing much deeper, more nuanced darks, and a fuller palette of colors. Dolby Laboratories reports that Dolby Vision can deliver signals that offer 40 times brighter highlights than today's TVs, along with up to 1,000 times greater contrast. Several television manufacturers have already engaged with Dolby and Altera for the solution.

Altera Corporation Demonstrates Advanced SMPTE Solutions for IP-Based UHD Infrastructure at IBC 2014

Altera Corporation announced that is demonstrating broadcast solutions at its booth (1.F13) in the RAI Convention Centre at the International Broadcast Conference 2014 in Amsterdam from September 12 to 16. Altera is showcasing solutions supporting the industry's migration to an affordable IP-enabled ultra-high-definition and high-definition infrastructure on Altera FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) and SoCs. Altera Generation 10 FPGAs and SoCs enable equipment manufacturers to quickly get to market with systems capable of handling the complex requirements of providing UHD with "better pixels" with more contrast, deeper colors, and higher frame rates over a deterministic and media-aware IP-based network. Altera IBC booth demos include: a first-in-FPGA SMPTE 2059 solution integrated with a scalable SMPTE 2022 solution allowing for the precise synchronization and reliable transport of uncompressed or compressed A/V streams over an IP enabled UHD infrastructure, a collaboration between Altera, Oregano and Macnica. A first-in-FPGA H.265 (HEVC) codec-on-chip, targeted for low-delay applications with all encoding and decoding handled by a single FPGA. UHD video connectivity with a multi-rate 12G SDI solution which prepares equipment makers for the coming SMPTE standard enabling long distance transport of UHD signals over standard coaxial cable. A first-in-FPGA solution for HDMI 2.0 demonstrating Altera's continued leadership with reliable, interoperable display interface solutions, following the delivery of the industry's only fully-compliant DisplayPort 1.2 FPGA IP solution.

ARRI Chooses Altera for ARRI Documentary Camera

Altera Corporation announced that its field programmable gate array (FPGA) products and complementary power products have been chosen to enable a new, versatile documentary-style camera by ARRI. The AMIRA is the first ARRI camera with its own video processing pipeline enabled on a single Altera Stratix V FPGA, which when combined with Altera's Enpirion PowerSoC DC-DC converter, greatly contributes to the camera's compact, ergonomic design optimized for single-operator use. The Stratix V FPGA enables the AMIRA camera to feature the same sensor and exceptional image quality as the ARRI ALEXA camera, but at up to 200 frames per second. At IBC 2014, ARRI will be demonstrating UHD output support for AMIRA, due to its reprogrammable system architecture and its processing power allowing in-camera, real-time up-sampling for UHD distribution. The AMIRA multi-viewfinder relies on Altera's Cyclone V to enable precision capture operation and camera control, making it affordable for cost-sensitive production budgets.
