Altera Takes Programmable-logic to International Broadcasting Convention

9/10/2003 - Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) will demonstrate the industry’s leading programmable-logic based solutions for the broadcast and digital consumer market at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) later this week in Amsterdam.

The demonstrations will include the only FPGA-based system-ready solution for transporting and processing standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) video over a serial digital interface (SDI). Based on StratixTM GX devices and developed in close cooperation with leading broadcast equipment developers, the solution provides the best single-chip alternative to application-specific standard product (ASSP)-based multi-chip solutions. Altera’s SD/HD-SDI solution delivers higher integration than ASSP-based multi-chip implementations, lowering costs and simplifying product development. The solution has also been successfully tested in real SDI system environments with requirements beyond the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineering (SMPTE) SDI specification.

These and other features of Altera’s SDI solution will be demonstrated at IBC 2003, including:

Altera’s SDI solution will be demonstrated using video test equipment from Tektronix, the market leader in test, measurement, and monitoring, and a commercial LCD TV display powered by Altera CycloneTM devices. Other demonstrations at Altera’s IBC 2003 booth will include:

Exhibition: September 12-16, 2003
RAI Exhibition and Congress Centre
Hall 11, Booths 749 and 751
The Netherlands
