This video demonstrates the use of BEEcube Platform Studio software and BEE3 FPGA hardware plaftorm for high definition video frame buffer processing. The video input is a 60fps 720p stream from PlayStation3 Bluray, and live captured on either the BEE3 FPGA platform or ML50x hardware platform. Full 600 frames are stored in the attached DRAM module, which can be displayed on the output DVI interface either as live stream, or frame by frame controlled via the BPS software interface.
Demonstration of real time High Definition video processing using the BEE3 FPGA computing platform and BEEcube Platform Studio software. A number of video filters including emboss, negative and edge detect, are applied on a live HD video source. The screen is split into regions on which the filters are applied in order to demonstrate the contrast between the filtered and un-filtered video.
Demonstration of BEE3 as an SDR prototyping platform - showing off our FPGA based continuous wideband vector signal generator, controlled by software in real-time via over Gigabit Ethernet, with carrier frequency tone sweeps ranging from 0 to 2GHz. BEE3's inherit I/Q 2Gsps DAC highlights BEE3's wideband capability. The BEE3 ADC expansion board simultaneously captured analog output with Data being displayed directly and integrated with Matlab(tm). BEE3's ADC can sample up to 3 GHz, offering a true direct RF sampling capability.
