Advanced Micro Devices, a developer of microprocessors and graphics technologies, and Point Grey, a designer of advanced digital camera products, have jointly demonstrated uncompressed streaming of high-definition video across USB 3.0 during an AMD event.

The live demonstration showcased the performance benefits of USB 3.0 by streaming uncompressed high definition (HD) 1080p60 video from Point Grey’s Flea3 digital video camera to an AMD Fusion A-series-based laptop computer. USB 3.0 offers ten times the bandwidth of USB 2.0, full duplex and asynchronous operation, and increased power delivery. The system featured A75 core-logice and A70M I/O controller with native USB 3.0 support.

“USB 3.0 enables the use of HD 1080p cameras, which means a new level of realism for video conferencing and other forms of tele-presence. Using Point Grey’s Flea3 we were able to give users insight into some of the other applications that are possible with SuperSpeed USB in addition to the high-speed data transfers with external storage devices that we have seen so far," said Godfrey Cheng, director of AMD’s client technology unit.

With its up to 5Gb/s transfer speeds, USB 3.0 will enable a number of other use cases apart from pure video streaming from external devices. The current demonstration show that AMD's implementation of SuperSpeed USB is fully functional and bring a real benefits.

"We are pleased to have had the opportunity to team up with AMD to demonstrate the benefits of USB 3.0. Point Grey demonstrated the world’s first SuperSpeed USB camera in September 2009. Since then we have witnessed widespread adoption of USB 3.0 in consumer devices and a huge groundswell of interest from both industrial and prosumer customers," said Michael Gibbons, product marketing manager at Point Grey.
