Image Matters announces its collaboration with test experts INGUN

INGUN joins Image Matters’ origami™ Ecosystem

INGUN specializes in providing bespoke test systems to simplify the testing procedure during the quality control process of manufacturing. Employing INGUN to design customized test appliances improves time to market for members of the origami™ Ecosystem, as well as guaranteeing reliable complex high-speed systems in the broadcast environments.


Jean-François Nivart, Image Matters CEO, says: “Our partnership with INGUN is a key development milestone for Image Matters. In addition to providing super-fast IO connectivity quality control testing during manufacturing, our collaboration will also allow origami™ Ecosystem partners to quickly and affordably build test systems that meticulously validate their designs. This mechanism, in fact, has traditionally been difficult to master and expensive to deliver”


To leverage the power and modularity of the origami™ Ecosystem, product developers build their own interface circuits to deliver solutions with fast turnaround times to meet the demands of SDI, IP, 4K and 8K systems. Once designs are complete, successful manufacturing demands testing procedures that must be adopted to ensure products meet the requirements of today’s broadcast markets.


The costs and time involved in product testing are often under estimated and tends to manifest at the end of the development cycle – precisely when manufacturers and SI’s are under the greatest pressure to deliver their solutions. Developing test facilities with INGUN reduces validation times and costs, and results in greater reliability, according to the company.


Using INGUN to test their IM-B20 and IM-B21 products, Image Matters have saved a great amount of time

Image Matters origami™ Ecosystem is suited to deliver hardware solutions to meet the tide of changes in the industry, like SDI and IP interfacing at the data speeds 4K and 8K video. The IM-B20 module, with its Xilinx UltraScale Kintex FPGA and exclusive Z-Ray connector, provides super-fast IO to facilitate 12G SDI and SFP fiber IP.


Modularity is key to future-proofing systems and this is even more evident as we transition to 8K. origami™ allows custom PCBs to be designed empowering SI’s and OEM’s to deliver product to market. Using INGUN to test their IM-B20 and IM-B21 products, Image Matters have saved a tremendous amount of time.
