Choosing the Right IP Cores for Low-Latency Video Streaming

Presented at REUSE 2016 by Dr. Nikos Zervas, CEO of CAST.

Abstract: A negligible delay from video capture to display—the “glass-to-glass” latency—is critical for many video streaming applications, from advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS) and unmanned vehicles to video conferencing and broadcasting.

Choosing the IP cores that will enable a successful low-latency video system is not a trivial task: designers must first understand the factors that impact latency, then select cores that provide adequate control over the latency-critical functions. In this presentation, we will apply these considerations to a typical end-to-end video streaming system, providing guidance on avoiding latency pitfalls and explaining how glass-to-glass latency depends largely on the rate control attributes of the system’s video compression cores.
