Image processing is a good way to show the co-processing environment of Xilinx Zynq SOC (System on Chip). This demo shows the application of several image filters to a streaming high definition video stream.
The stream is input from a bidirectional HDMI port, passed through the integrated FPGA, filters applied and passed out into the VGA port. The on-board ARM Cortex A9 processor is managing the inputs and allowing the booting from SD card.
The goal of this instructable is to give a user a quick demonstration of what the Zybo board is capable of. There is no programming of the board and instead you are using the previously prepared files that are loading on the microSD Card. This means that this demo does NOT require you to build the source files. To do that you will need to have a base level understanding of the Xilinx chain as well as familiarity with programming the Zynq processor. Steps to do this are not included in this instructable.
