Highlights of the Booth

Image Matters provides FPGA-based modules to help equipment manufacturers jump faster and easier into new video dimensions. Using a modular approach, Image Matter split the electronics into pre-validated subsystems and provides an easy-to-use environment to customize and build complete systems: 1). A processing module: FPGA, memory, security chip, local power supply and other essential components to run the FPGA in a credit card size module; 2). A connector: high-density board-to-board connector custom made for origami; 3). A carrier: application layer easily adapted to all required interfaces.

Product Names


The IM-M20 module integrates all important features requested by FPGA-based designs, i.e memory banks, DC-DC converters, configuration flash and system clocks.

Most of the FPGA signals that are not used by these basic features will be routed to the origami connector to become available on the carrier board. The selected FGPA allows video IO and processing of up to 8K 60fps 444 12 bits or 4K 120fps 444 12 bits including TICO encoding and decoding.

Transport-wise, the board features 16x 25 Gbmps Eth. lines as well as PCIe and SDI. Transmission over IP is a particularly good fit for this board. While the function of the IM-M20 is mainly to ease the integration of FPGA for video use cases, its architecture a wide array of possibilities.


Thanks to its "credit card" format, the IM-B20 module can be connected to any type of carrier for any application. This isolation of the computing power allows manufacturers to focus on their application while Image Matters takes care of the commodities of the design, no need to reinvent the wheel each and every time.

The IM-B20 is particularly useful for advanced video applications. It is able to handle multiple video codecs and interface and to process video streams up to 8K UHD-2 in uncompressed or TICO and up to 4K UHD-1 in uncompressed, TICO, JPEG 2000, HEVC IP, AVC or MPEG 2.

The IM-B20 uses the origami modularity concept developed by Image Matters' R&D department. This concept makes it possible to merge data processing modules and cards via a dedicated connector.


The IM-B21 is an origami compatible carrier offering a flexible PCIe platform to experiment and deploy fastly and efficiently high end video applications.

Featuring a PCIe GEN3 x8/x16 bus, the IM-B21 can reach throughput supporting up to 8K-60p uncompressed video streams simultaneously as input and output.

Connected to the IM-B20, the IM-B21 is particularly convenient for advanced video applications: handling multiple video codecs, interfacing and processing video streams up to 8K UHD-2 in uncompressed & TICO and up to 4K UHD-1 in uncompressed, TICO, JPEG 2000, HEVC IP, AVC and MPEG 2.
