Altera's Cyclone III device is an ideal video processing platform given the large number of multipliers, low power and M9K memory blocks.

Bitec have made available a cost effective kit targeted at Video processing development using a Cyclone III device for the core processing. The kit contains the Cyclone III FPGA Development Kit which utilizes an EP3C129 device and two HSMC video interface cards together with a collection of IP cores and reference designs. The kit provides a variety of video interface standards including both digital and analogue up to HD resolutions.

The Bitec Cyclone III Video Development Kit provides an integrated solution for developers wishing to utilize the Cyclone III device for video applications. With a growing collection of reference designs based on the Altera VIP suit, development time is reduced to the minimum.

With two independent 32-bit DDR2 memory interfaces, the Cyclone III VDK is able to tackle the most challenging High Definition video applications.

Altera 1080P Framework

The AlteraŽ Video and Image Processing (VIP) Suite is a collection of MegaCoreŽ functions that you can use to facilitate the development of custom video and image processing designs. These MegaCore functions are suitable for use in a wide variety of image processing and display applications, such as video surveillance, broadcast, video conferencing, and medical/military imaging.

The Bitec Cyclone III Video development kit provides an ideal basis for the development of advanced image processing designs incorporating the VIP.

Altera DSP Video Processing Reference Design
The AlteraŽ video and image processing example design demonstrates up conversion from a standard definition (SD) video stream in national television system committee (NTSC) format and picture-in-picture mixing with a background layer.
CIII VDK  1080P Ref Design
DVI 1080P Loop-through (Beta)
This reference design demonstrates a DDR2 SDRAM loopthrough of a 1080P@50. An input image on the DVI port is tripple-buffered through the top and bottom banks of DDR2 SDRAM before transmitting on the DVI output port.
