Xilinx Introduces HDMI 2.1 IP Subsystem

Xilinx, Inc., the leader in adaptive and intelligent computing, today announced that it has introduced a complete HDMI 2.1 IP subsystem to its portfolio of intellectual property cores, enabling Xilinx devices to transmit, receive and process up to 8K (7680 x 4320 pixels) ultra-high-definition (UHD) video in pro AV equipment, including cameras, streaming media players, professional monitors, LED walls, projectors and KVM, as well as broadcast products such as end points and infrastructure that are being upgraded to handle 8K video.

Customers are increasingly adopting machine learning to monetize and improve workflows in diverse applications such as broadcast, pro AV, automotive and surveillance. HDMI 2.1 data rates are provided by Xilinx'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, to deliver more immersive viewing experiences," said Ramesh Iyer, director of marketing, Pro AV and Broadcast market, Xilinx. "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."

Xilinx will demonstrate the HDMI 2.1 IP subsystem alongside a range of other cores for compression, video processing and digital-signage analytics at booth 15-D240, ISE Integrated Systems Europe, RAI Amsterdam, February 5-8.

content delivery must hit pause somewhere. we get it, 4K and 8K is amazing, but only if you have the media to use on them. we don't have bandwidth to reach that levels so it is the reason why 4K failed this hard across worldwide.

Build the interface and capabilities, the technology will follow.
PCI 5.0 right around the corner.

Maybe one day.

renting blu ray 4k movies and watching them on my dads 65" 4k sure has been a blast though. not everyone needs the net for a good time. I'd be content with 8k tv's when they sell for 2 grand for a 65" model and also have plenty of 8k blu rays to rent
