Professional AV

Broadcast quality technology for Pro AV applications

Professional Audio Video is a broad market encompassing products such as Video Conferencing, Video over IP, Interactive Displays, Digital Signage, LED Walls and Routers to name a few.

This market is currently responding to the rapid increase in demand for 4K resolution support. Hot on the heels of 4K is the need for 8K support, High Dynamic Range and Higher frame rates. This accelerating change in consumer requirements is accompanied by an equally fast change in industry protocols, including the move to IP based distribution, H.265 compression standards and advances in video interconnect standards such as DisplayPort and HDMI.

Omnitek specialises in video IP and design services which enable us to assist our clients in rapidly responding to these considerable challenges.

Video Conferencing

The requirements for video conferencing and telepresence systems are many and demanding. Omnitek provide a range of IP Cores that simplify the design implementation including ISP IP (to process the RAW sensor image), HDR Tone-mapping IP (to improve image dynamic range and contrast) and Image Stitch IP (to seamlessly stitch images with different positioning geometry, correct lens artefacts and colour correct images from different sensors).

These can be implemented individually or as part of a sophisticate design employing connection IP (such as Omnitek’s HDMI IP and “DisplayPort IP”) and processed using Omnitek’s OSVP IP Suite which support up to 4K video at 60 frames/s. These provide the low latency, compatibility and flexibility required for sophisticate designs as well as keeping unit costs within tight budgets.

Display Screen

Next generation displays need to be able to operate with 8K resolution video at frame rates up to 120fps as well as being able to provide the user-interactivity (such as picture in picture, overlays and effects) expected in modern displays.

Omnitek’s OSVP Suite provides an extensive range of customisable IP blocks that allow the displayed image to be process to provide picture in picture, graphical overlays, image enhancement and much more. The OSVP Suite has been adopted by many display screen manufacturers as is provides a highly effective solution for today’s design challenges.

Modern display screen technology needs to be able to connect both internally and externally to a range of different interfaces. Omnitek provide a range of IP Cores that simplify design implementation including connectivity IP such as Omnitek’s HDMI IP, “V-by-One Rx”, “DisplayPort Rx” and “LVDS” and “SDI Rx”, image processing using the OSVP IP Suite.

Interactive Displays

The requirements for modern Interactive display design include 4K and even 8K resolutions, multiple video interface connectivity, high resolution graphics overlays, image processing and much more. Omnitek provide a range of IP Cores that simplify design implementation including Omnitek’s OSVP IP Suite (supporting image processing up to 8K resolution), connectivity IP such as Omnitek’s HDMI IP, “V-by-One Rx”, “DisplayPort Rx” and “LVDS” and SDI Rx.

Signage and LED Walls

The complexity of modern signage and LED Wall designs means that a specialist range of processing and connectivity tools are required. Omnitek provide a range of IP Cores that simplify design implementation including connectivity IP such as Omnitek’s HDMI IP, “V-by-One Rx”, “DisplayPort Rx” and “LVDS” and SDI Rx, image processing using the OSVP IP Suite of IP and Omnitek’s Warp IP.

Projectors

Next generation projectors need to be able to operate with 8K resolution video at frame rates up to 120fps as well as being able to provide the user-interactivity (such as picture in picture, overlays and effects). Omnitek provide a range of IP Cores that simplify design implementation including connectivity. See Projectors for full details
