Liège, BELGIUM — 8th September 2017
Image Matters is proud to announce that video machine learning specialists PathPartner and member of the origami™ Ecosystem, will be integrating their high performance universal H.265/HEVC Decoder with facial detection into the origami™ B20 Module. PathPartner’s FPGA IP cores empower OEM’s and System Integrators to easily and quickly decode high speed HEVC streams to baseband video for SDI and IP/ethernet connectivity and feed into object detection.
“PathPartner’s unique expertise and novel approach are a powerful addition to the origami™ Ecosystem”, said Jean-François Nivart, CEO of Image Matters. “PathPartner is a future oriented company with a well-established presence and network. We are pleased with their collaboration and look forward to giving OEM’s and System Integrators, access to an unprecedented offer for HEVC Codecs and object detection”.
“Disruptive innovations usually come from outside the industry and Image Matters’ ingenious origami™ Ecosystem lowers the barrier to entry for newcomers”, said Ramkishor Korada, PathPartner’s global head for sales and business development. “Modularity is key to fast, reliable integration, and our vision-based machine learning and H.265/HEVC FPGA IP-cores deliver new levels of feature rich capabilities for the media industry. With our years of expertise in providing multimedia solutions, we envision to provide our licensable IP-cores and design services to a whole new host of system designers and product makers.”
With a close-knit team of engineers, designers and developers, PathPartner’s brings a wealth of experience in video imaging and machine learning to the broadcast industry. Their new face detection IP-core optimized for the Xilinx® Kintex® Ultrascale™ 060 is an outstanding example of outside innovation benefiting broadcasters. Ideally suited to the Image Matters B20 module, OEM’s and System Integrators will be able to deliver facial detection during live broadcasts to assist with monitoring and rich meta-data creation and logging
Image Matters’ unique modular approach, guarantees a future-proof and adaptable hardware platform. This platform was built to answer versatile technological advances and standards in video formats and distribution, making the origami™ FPGA modules forward oriented and sustainable.
Combined with the origami™ Ecosystem and interface boards, PathPartner brings new innovation, real-time high-speed video processing, low latency and flexible processing to the broadcast and AV markets. Designed around Image Matters exclusive custom Z-Ray connector, with high bandwidth and pin density (up to 1150 pins, validated at 26Gbps), the origami™ concept can easily future proof products and infrastructures.
Image Matters is paving the way for disruptive innovators to enter the television industry and deliver new features for the benefit of broadcasters in new, groundbreaking ways.
At this year’s IBC, Image Matters will be demonstrating PathPartner H.265/HEVC solutions on booth 5.B21 along with other members of the origami™ Ecosystem to showcase multiple demos with different IP-Core integrations and hardware products.
