Broadcast Video Contribution

In the contribution part of the broadcast industry, operators need to ingest video from multiple sources, compress it and packetize it for transport to a production facility. Once at the production facility, the process is reveresed to depacketize the transported video/data and decompress it.  The content is then ready for editing and storing in a central depository.

Intel offers three classes of FPGA solutions at various levels of power consumption, speed, and processing power to meet specific customer needs. High-end Intel® Stratix® series capabilites allow the highest performance, mid-range Intel Arria® series is in the instersection of power and performance, and lower-end Intel Cylcone® and Intel MAX® devices provide low cost and power while maintaining a significant level of performance.
