Xilinx Inc. recently announced that Victor Company of Japan Ltd (JVC) has adopted Xilinx low-cost Spartan-3E FPGAs for their latest handheld high definition video (HDV) GY-HD 250 series camera-recorder.

According to the press release, Xilinx programmable devices provided JVC with the competitive edge by substantially reducing development costs and providing faster time-to-market and improved functionality.

Launched last month, the GY-HD 250 series features two HDV formats, progressive and interlace, thus fully covering 720p/50:60 format while allowing output of 1080i/50:60 format. The GY-HD 250 series also features SD/HD-SDI output with embedded audio/time-code.

"Xilinx Spartan-3E FPGAs made a huge contribution to the development of our HDV camera-recorder that meets the countless needs of the professional video market. Professional HDV is one of the most important strategic fields for our company and we intend to strengthen our ties with Xilinx in the future to accelerate our development of competitive and unique products," said Kazuya Yamada, engineering manager at JVC.
