Altera FPGAs Enable Dolby Vision for Ultra-HD TVs

Altera Programmable Logic Drives Performance and Image Processing for Enhanced Viewing Experiences on Ultra-High Definition (UHD) Displays

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 15, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —  Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) today announced its Arria® V FPGAs are delivering the high performance needed for Dolby Laboratories' innovative Dolby® Vision™ imaging technology for ultra-high definition (UHD) displays. The Dolby Vision value proposition is to deliver a dramatically different visual experience to TV displays, enabling content creators and television manufacturers to deliver greater brightness while also providing much deeper, more nuanced darks, and a fuller palette of colors. Dolby Laboratories reports that Dolby Vision can deliver signals that offer 40 times brighter highlights than today's TVs, along with up to 1,000 times greater contrast.

Altera programmable logic drives performance and image processing for enhanced viewing experiences on ultra-high definition (UHD) displays.

According to Roland Vlaicu, vice president for Consumer Imaging at Dolby Laboratories, "Altera FPGAs provide the processing and compression capabilities that enable Dolby Vision to override previous technology limitations that required video content to be altered before being reproduced for transmission. With Dolby Vision, producers and creative teams have the freedom to use a fuller gamut of colors, as well as peak brightness and deep contrasts for better viewing experiences."

David Gamba, senior director of the Consumer Business Unit at Altera, remarked, "Equipment manufacturers must address new, complex 4K, 8K, H.265/HEVC and connectivity standards, and FPGA programmability allows them to complete design cycles faster and deliver products to market. The work with Dolby, an innovative technology leader, shows the value of rapid algorithm processing enabled by Altera FPGAs and SoCs and software IP to bring groundbreaking, innovative designs to market."

Several television manufacturers have already engaged with Dolby and Altera for the solution.
