Video and Image Processing Design Using FPGAs
Company: Altera Corp.
Many new and exciting innovations, such as HDTV and digital cinema, revolve around video and image processing and this technology's rapid evolution. Leaps forward in image capture and display resolutions, advanced compression techniques, and video intelligence are the driving forces behind the technological innovation.
In this paper, we will look at the trends in video and image processing that are forcing developers to re-examine the architectures they have used in the past. This paper will discuss the tradeoffs of different architectures and conclude with details and benchmarks for Altera's new solutions in this area. With low-cost FPGAs and structured ASICs, high-definition solutions can now be implemented for less than US$1.00 per 1,000 logic elements (LEs).
