Designers can take advantage of the Altera high-definition video reference designs to deliver high-quality up, down, and cross conversion (UDX) capability for standard-definition (SD), high-definition (HD), and 3-Gbps video streams in interlaced or progressive format. These reference designs are highly software and hardware configurable, enabling rapid system configuration and design. The designs target typical broadcast applications such as switcher, multiviewer, converter, and video conferencing products.
