Real Time Video Engine

Also supplied is a demonstration of the Xilinx RTVE 3.1 Reference Design, which has the Omnitek Scalable Video Processor IP (OSVP) at its core and performs de-interlace and resize of up to four video inputs, and composites them onto a single video output. Control software is executed on the built-in ARM processor, which runs a Linux build with Qt graphics support. An Omnitek 2D Graphics IP core provides graphics acceleration.

Evaluation Reference Design

The OZ745 board is delivered with an Evaluation Reference Design (ERD) which recognizes and displays SDI, HDMI and analogue video inputs. It can also display a test pattern on the SDI and HDMI video outputs. The ERD provides a convenient way to test many of the board’s features and gives a skeleton design upon which firmware and software applications can be built. Source is provided to allow initial design creation.

The control software generates a web page which can be hosted locally and composited over the video on the SDI, HDMI or LVDS flat panel display output and controlled via mouse and keyboard. Alternatively, the UI may be hosted on a remote web browser.
