Origami Ecosystem launched for NAB 2016 !
Liège, Belgium, April 14th 2016, Image Matters announced today the launch of the Origami Ecosystem. Adeas, Embrionix, Fidus, Image Matters, inrevium, IntoPIX, Omnitek, PLDA, QuickPlay, Samtec, SOC Technologies, Tokyo Electron Device, Village Island, Xilinx and other pending members have joined forces to boost innovation in the audiovisual industry. Origami provides today a modular approach for next generation applications and designs.
The Origami Ecosystem connects audiovisual Distributors, IP-Core Vendors, Hardware Providers and Tool Vendors under a single banner for both small and large design projects. Pre-validated hardware and IP-Cores together with modular architecture and development flow enable engineers to cost-effectively develop their new ideas for upcoming applications.
The Origami Ecosystem is a unique all-inclusive partner network for audiovisual system manufacturer. Origami brings a whole new level of agility to address 4K (UHD-1), 8K (UHD-2, SHV), High Frame Rates (HFR), High Dynamic Range (HDR), Wide Color Gamut (WCG), High Brightness, IP-based workflows and Hybrid infrastructures and networks.

Today TED, Inrevium America, Village Island and Image Matters join the ecosystem to insure system designers and creative companies to benefit from personalized contact and support throughout their project.
Tokyo Electron Device:
“We strongly believe that this Ecosystem will be crucial for anybody who is involved in 8K innovation” said Yasuo Hatsumi, VP of Tokyo Electron Device. “Tokyo Electron Device will commit to this ecosystem as a wholesaler of the Origami module and as a Japanese company who will lead 8K world.
We look forward to contributing to technological innovations and working with partner companies worldwide to make ‘WOW !’ together.”
“Time to the market is key to success but broadcast industry players can’t afford anymore to develop internally and vertically all components of their system” said Michaël Van Dorpe, CEO of Village Island. “Rather, they want to cherry pick ‘state-of-the-art’ technologies from individual domain experts and achieve smooth and diligent developments. In that scope, we can only applause the ORIGAMI ecosystem initiative and we are glad to be part of that network of partners. Village Island resell and integrates OEM technologies. Please consults us for your specific projects requirements.”
“We are very excited about being part of the Ecosystem” said Yasu Hamano, COO of inrevium America, Inc. “Origami Ecosystem is literally one stop shop for 8K4K world applications in terms of hardware and software, and pre-validated solution will bring an enormous efficiency and flexibility to designers to be free from complexity in both IPs and FPGA design.
The inrevium brand represents the FPGA skills to flexibly adapt to changing market needs, customer requirements, and technology trends. inrevium America will face up squarely together with image matters and partner members in order to contribute to the advancement of technological innovation and deliver the Origami solution to designers in North America.”
Collect all the subsystem elements you need to speed up your application.
Pre-validated elements such as IP-Cores, hardware modules and carrier boards, address the redundant challenges of the audiovisual industry : SDI, Ethernet and PCIe interfaces as well as image codecs, signal wrappers and image processing.
Expertise from Embrionix, intoPIX, Omnitek, PLDA, Samtec, SOC Technologies and Xilinx is directly accessible through The Origami Ecosystem.
“Over the last 20 years, PLDA has been involved with numerous FPGA-based product initiatives and our PCI/PCIe IP cores have been widely successful in all application spaces” said Jean-Yves Brena, Co-founder and COO at PLDA. “It is rare to see a new ecosystem which, right from its inception, offers a very comprehensive offering to the end users, and we are not only hopeful but also excited to be part of this new venture.”
“The Origami Ecosystem brings together a group of world leading companies in the video product sector of all the levels, from IP cores to end-user devices” said Shaowen Song, President and CTO of System On Chip Technologies. “SOC is excited to join the Ecosystem as a key member, to provide the members with MPEG codec IP cores, including H.265/HEVC, H.264/AVC, and MPEG-2 encoders, decoders, and transcoders, to allow them to develop cutting edge products for the video markets."
“intoPIX is glad to be part of the Ecosystem” said Gaël Rouvroy, CTO of intoPIX. “Developers can reach new possibilities to build advanced HD or UHDTV products powered by our powerful JPEG2000 and TICO FPGA implementations.”
“As FPGA technology increases in complexity, a modular building-block approach to IP development is essential in order to minimize product time-to-market” said Mike Hodson, President of Omnitek. We are committed to this design methodology, and are pleased to work with the Origami Ecosystem to supply leading-edge solutions for image processing applications and connectivity interfaces.”
“Embrionix is thrilled to be part of this Ecosystem which will enable OEMs to fast track their development” said Renaud Lavoie, CEO of Embrionix. “Using Embrionix solutions offers them maximum I/O flexibility inside their products.”
“Z-Ray is a great fit for the Origami Ecosystem,” said Steve Hillerich, Product Manager at Samtec. “First, hardware modularity obviously require a high speed interconnect system to support 8K. It also requires a high density design for a high pin count (high I/O) and to accommodate the tight form factor of modules. The BeCu contacts can handle thousands of cycles. Finally, the hardware can support x1, x2, and x4 systems without modifying the board footprint.”
Get a direct access to your own system identity.
By isolating the FPGA integration complexity on a module from the highly application-dependent connectivity on a carrier board, the Origami architecture improves time to market and simplifies the design process. The design of an applicative carrier board becomes fast and easy. You can rely on advanced interfaces and processing functions to concentrate your efforts on your own expertise.
Adeas and Fidus together with distributors will accompany you along your project development enabling fast design of specific firmware and hardware.
“As an experienced design house specialized in tailored FPGA based solutions for Broadcast and ProAV markets Adeas gladly joined the global ecosystem” said Antoine Wijlaars, Managing Director and co-Founder of Adeas. “Together the companies in the ecosystem cover the whole scope of state of the art video framework technology. By collaboration it enables OEM’s faster and more flexible product development. Adeas contributes with its SDI and Video over IP experience by designing and integrating hardware and FPGA/SoC based IP creating new exciting products.”
“Fidus Systems is a proud partner of Image Matters and we immediately saw the value in the vision of founder Jean-Francois Nivart” said Cameron Redmond, Executive Vice President of Sales of Fidus. “This made our decision to get involved easy. Being part of a program like this to bring high performance modular design platforms to support 4K and 8K 60fps video research and development, not only allowed Fidus to participate in a groundbreaking system development and design for Image Matters but positions us well to assist clients in the future with their custom design initiatives leveraging the Origami ecosystem and our specific B20/B21 architectural and design expertise with these platforms. This is a huge step forward in providing quick and easy access of these technologies.”
Finally, compile your own FPGA firmware directly using your C/C++ code.
QuickPlay and Xilinx offer to the Origami Ecosystems top notch tools connecting all elements in a fast forward mode.
“The Origami Ecosystem is completely in line with our QuickPlay approach” said Stéphane Monboisset, Marketing Director of QuickPlay. “We are delighted to participate in such an innovation-driven undertaking. We believe that the combined offering of the Origami ecosystem with our Software Defined FPGA programming tool (QuickPlay) represents the future of computing by significantly reducing the barriers to adoption of FPGA technology. The Origami ecosystem gathers industry leaders around a single purpose: pulling the image industry forward, and QuickPlay creates the tools to support that evolution.”
“Xilinx is very excited about the Origami Ecosystem” said Aaron Behman, Director of Strategic Marketing at Xilinx. “It provides the market new levels of coordination between actors of a new system design. This enables any designer, from small start-ups to huge corporations, to access cutting edge technologies with no compromise. We believe this Ecosystem will be a powerful engine of innovation at every level of the industry.”
