Webkit Overlay of HDMI Stream In/Out

Hi Up Squared Team,
I would be soooo glad if someone could implement a Chrome Overlay on FPGA between HDMI In and HDMI Out.

Let me explain:

In 2010, Adafruit created NeTv and OpenSource the code
https://www.adafruit.com/product/609

This card forward HDMI In to the HDMI Out even if the signal is crypted. A Transparent Webkit full screen is set as an overlay of the image.

There is so many usecase ! For instance I forward my security webcam and notifications on top of the screen:

But a 2010 card is very slow (CSS transition works but not the video). The Up Squared would be so impressive with this feature ! So much usage for Home Automation with Personal Assistant, Elders, etc ...

Thanks.

    We will check if it is possible. :-)
    Thanks for your suggestion.

    Just have a quick chat with our FPGA expert.
    we cannot support this application, FPGA cannot capture the HDMI signal.
    the alternative solution would be to use a HDMI-to-USB3 capture device and add this overlay on the captured video stream before sending the video out to UP^2 HDMI. However, it need a strong software effort. We don't have plan to do it now.
  • Thanks,
    So what is the use case of an hdmi in and an hdmi out ?

    in the industrial world, the use case often out of our imagination. If you have any use case to share, we would love to hear.
  • My UseCase is for Silver Economy. The HomeAutomation needs to forward some information to elder, for instance on their TV.
    But there is no device (only NeTV) that have hdmi in/out to overlay the information on the Screen.

    Elders needs to know someone ring at the door, or event reminder, etc ... this features would helps to "connect" TV.
    I like the way NeTV solve that by putting a Chrome layer that's very handy

    Hi,

    I found this topic, and it's related to a question I have. So I thought I'd add this question:
    You mentioned using an HDMI to USB3 capture device. Would the board be able to feed in HD 1080p video through the HDMI to USB 3 device while sending it over the web through streaming (through browser or Skype-like apps) using Windows 10 OS without the hardware being overloaded?

    Thanks

    Just check some available solution in the market.UP Squared's H/W capability should be cable to do the job. https://www.startech.com/uk/AV/Converters/Video/usb-3-0-video-capture-device-hdmi-dvi-vga~USB3HDCAP

    Hi AlingWu,

    Thank you, this is great to know it will handle it. I was actually looking at the same capture device as the one you you posted above as it is a high quality device.
    In the product specs tab you can find a list of compatible and uncompatible USB3 controllers https://www.startech.com/uk/AV/Converters/Video/usb-3-0-video-capture-device-hdmi-dvi-vga~USB3HDCAP
    It reads: This product is not compatible with Etron USB controllers, or ASMedia 1042 / 1042A USB controllers. Confirmed compatible USB 3.0 host controllers: Intel, Renesas (NEC), VIA, AMD, Fresco FL1100
    Incompatible USB 3.0 host controllers: ASmedia, Etron

    Can you confirm UP^2 will have USB3 controllers compatible per these specs? (Win 10 OS preferably).

    Thank you!!!

    My bests

    Hi ,
    For UP & UP Squared, all USB3 ports are directely connected to Intel CPU so there won’t be any problem reported. (Confirmed compatible USB 3.0 host controllers: Intel, …)
    We didn't really check startech solution ourself, I just simply googled it. :-)
    If you have nice test result, please share in UP community.
