LAS VEGAS - April 9, 2015 - PRLog -- NAB Show - NGCodec™ announces that it will be demonstrating a real time Intra H.265/HEVC video encoder running on a low cost Xilinx® Kintex®-7 FPGA in the Xilinx booth in the North Hall booth N5616.
“In just a few weeks of working with the Vivado® High-Level Synthesis tool our team was able to progress from an architectural C model to a 1080p H.265/HEVC Intra encoder running on a Kintex-7," said Adam Malamy, VP Engineering & Co-founder of NGCodec. “The Vivado HLS tool combined with the generation-ahead FPGAs and the amazing support from Xilinx allowed us to deliver a state of the art H.265/HEVC intra encoder in record time.”
"Xilinx is pleased to host NGCodec in its booth at NAB 2015,” said Aaron Behman, director of the broadcast and pro a/v business segment at Xilinx, "We look forward to the successful deployment of NGCodec’s HEVC solution for Xilinx 7 series and Kintex UltraScale devices that will benefit of our mutual customers."
