All facets of life seem to include videos of some kind. Social media feeds feature videos from family and friends or possibly that “killer product or service” everybody has to have. “How-to” and “DIY” videos can be found on any random topic. The list goes on.
Never-ending video consumption by consumers on mobile devices, laptops, TVs or in the movie theatre drives the improved performance of IP networks and video production and distribution equipment. Computing platforms focused on video and imaging processing must support more pixels, more resolution and more colors to meet consumer demand.
Image Matters ORIGAMI Platform
One new platform targeted at next-generation video and imaging process in the Image Matters ORIGAMI. The two-PCB solution supports video and image compression, transcoding, playing and recording in various formats.
The ORIGAMI Module Board features extreme connectivity and processing power. The module’s small size and dedicated Samtec Z-Ray® Ultra-Low Profile Array allows easy integration onto carrier boards that perfectly fit applications such as advanced video, Pro A/V systems and cloud computing.
The ORIGAMI Carrier Board offers a tremendous platform to experiment and deploy high-end video applications using the extreme power and connectivity of the Origami Module. The half-height half-length low profile PCIe size enables easy integration into common PC-based systems.
The Z-Ray Interposer between two PCBs contains 1,150 pins. Each pin can support data rates up to 26 Gbps. The high-performance array enables the ORIGAMI platform to support multiple high-speed I/O formats including HDMI, 12G-SDI, PCIe and 10Gbps Ethernet.
