BEIJING -- Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) today unveiled the industry’s first FPGA-based, video-over-IP reference design. By leveraging the programmability and flexibility of Altera’s low-cost Cyclone™ FPGA series and Nios® II embedded processor, system designers can use this new reference design to accelerate their development of cost-effective, low complexity systems in the emerging video-over-IP market. The reference design demo can be viewed at booth 3104-3105.

“Altera’s comprehensive, first-to-market video-over-IP solution provides us with a significant competitive advantage, and we have adopted it and their Ethernet-to-ASI solution for our next-generation digital head-end product,” said Yu Zhi Wu, project manager of Pro Broadband, Inc. “The low-cost Cyclone FPGAs, combined with the flexible Nios II processor and Altera’s considerable expertise in broadcast solutions, enables us to reduce our costs via elimination of an ASSP and shorten our design cycle.”

Video-over-IP is a digital technology for transporting video over internet protocol (IP)-based networks. The Altera® reference design, which designers can use with any Altera FPGA device, targets applications for broadcast head-end and audio/video delivery systems. In addition to broadcast infrastructure, the design is applicable to any situation where high speed transport of data over Ethernet is required, including production studio, content distribution, video conferencing, security surveillance and medical imaging.
