Xilinx Adds Speech Recognition to Pro AV and Broadcast Platforms
Xilinx, a provider of adaptive and intelligent computing, has added advanced machine learning capabilities, including speech recognition, for Xilinx devices targeted at the professional audio/video (Pro AV) and broadcast markets.
The speech capabilities will allow users to automatically output text from speech for automating the transcription of meeting notes and language translation in conferencing and collaboration.
Other artificial intelligence capabilities for Xilinx Pro AV and broadcast platforms include region-of-interest encoding, intelligent digital signage, automatic object tracking, and window cropping. Customers can now take advantage of these ML capabilities on Xilinx devices, including the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC platform, for AI edge processing. The combination of real-time audio and video processing, AV connectivity interfaces, codecs, IP networking, CPU, and GPU into an adaptable and scalable single-chip solution can provide users with significant space, power, and cost savings.
"Machine learning is a rapidly developing technology that is stimulating new usage models in Pro AV and broadcast," said Ramesh Iyer, director of Pro AV and Broadcast at Xilinx, in a statement. "Adding ML into Xilinx's adaptable platforms provides a highly integrated AV processor that delivers proven support for 8K video, AV-over-IP, and compression, and now adds advanced capabilities for monetizing analytics, improving workflow efficiency and enhancing usability. Ultimately, these integrated ML features will allow companies to increase innovation, differentiate themselves, and accelerate time-to-market."
