Video Framework Design Examples

Altera's video framework includes many reference designs running on various kits. Below is the list of available designs with brief summary:


Video Example Design

  • The Altera video and image processing example design demonstrates dynamic scaling and clipping of a standard definition video stream in either NTSC or PAL format and picture-inpicture mixing with a background layer. The video stream is output in high definition resolution (1024×768) over a digital video interface (DVI).
  • This design is fully verified on the Cyclone III Video development kit.

UDX4 reference design

  • Two-channel up/down/cross conversion: Polyphase scaling, motion adaptive deinterlacing, mixing, and frame-rate conversion for resolutions up to 1080p
  • Deinterlacing has option to do cadence detect and pull down, low angle edge interpolation and low latency mode
  • SDI or DVI input interlaced, and progressive support
  • DVI/HDMI and SDI out, support for progressive and interlaced output
  • Mixer to allow multiviewer
  • On-screen display for logos and text overlay
  • Active format description extraction and insertion
  • Software configurable to speed up design cycles
  • High-speed DDR3 memory interfaces
  • Demonstration on Stratix® IV GX Audio Video Development kit

Format Conversion Reference Design (V1) - no longer support, please use UDX

  • Two-channel up/down/cross conversion: Polyphase scaling, motion adaptive deinterlacing, mixing, and frame-rate conversion for resolutions up to 1080p
  • SDI input (sd/hd/3g-SDI), interlaced, and progressive support
  • DVI out, support for 480p/720p/1080p (run-time configurable)
  • Software configurable to speed up design cycles
  • High-speed DDR2 memory interfaces
  • Demonstration on Stratix® II GX Audio Video Development kit

Format Conversion Reference Design (V2) - no longer support, please use UDX

  • Two-channel up/down/cross conversion: Polyphase scaling, motion adaptive deinterlacing, mixing, and frame-rate conversion for resolutions up to 1080p
  • SDI input (SD/HD/3G-SDI), interlaced, and progressive support
  • SDI output, support for interlaced and progressive outputs
  • Software configurable to speed up design cycles
  • High-speed DDR2 memory interfaces
  • Demonstration on Stratix® II GX Audio Video Development Kit and Arria® II GX Audio Video Development Kit
