Intel® Arria® 10 UHD video reference design demonstrates upscaling, downscaling, and cross-conversion of 4K60 10 bit video processing. The design uses key Video Image Processing Suite features, such as the scaler, framebuffer, and clipper. Video is input and output through integrated HDMI 2.0 intellectual property (IP). The design has three modes; changing scaling mode (pb0), changing output resolution (pb1), and toggling the icon display on/off (pb2).
