The Albacores TVV1 IP core is an extremely robust, high-quality analog video decoder. It accepts digitized video from ADCs (analog-to-digital converters), automatically determines the video standard in use, and decodes NTSC, PAL, and SECAM analog TV signals using adaptive 2D/3D comb filters. It accepts composite, S-Video, and YPbPr (component) video in both interlaced and progressive formats. It includes an advanced VBI data decoder and a time base corrector, providing excellent VCR and weak-signal performance.
The Albacores TVV1 provides significant benefits compared to other video decoders. It provides better video quality for a wider variety of video sources. Due to fewer external components being required, design time, design risk, and total system cost are significantly reduced. The TVV1's advanced video locking capabilities and ability to automatically detect the video standard provide less CPU overhead, less real-time CPU requirements, and a better overall user experience.
