Advantech Powers New FPGA-based Transcoding Applications At Streaming Media West Event
Huntington Beach, Streaming Media West, November 13th, 2018－Advantech (TWSE: 2395.TW) today unveiled the VEGA-4002 – a new member of its VEGA-4000 Xilinx Virtex Ultrascale Plus FPGA-based board family. The new board is optimized for flexible and reconfigurable multi-codec video encoding and transcoding, and is on display on the Xilinx stand at the event together with the rest of the VEGA-4000 family.
Reconfigurable FPGA-based video processing is becoming more appealing to OTT infrastructure users as the range of codecs required for OTT applications grows and the corresponding need for acceleration escalates. In addition to the established video codec standards like H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC, OTT service providers now need to consider additional use cases for codecs like VP9 and potentially even AV1 in the near future. FPGAs offer a flexible and futureproof way to accelerate multiple live codecs and can be upgraded over time.

"FPGA acceleration offers a way to efficiently support codecs and applications that are not well served by ASICs,” said Brian Carr, Product Strategist and Marketing Director for Video Solutions at Advantech. “Advantech is working closely with Xilinx and with a range of IP vendors to ensure customers have access to the latest codecs in an easy-to-use software architecture on our commercially available boards and systems.”
Advantech will be showing their FPGA-based boards on the Xilinx booth at Streaming Media West, November 13th-14th 2018 in Huntington Beach, CA. The boards are also powering several live demonstrations at the event, including real-time ABR transcoding from partners NGCodec.
