I'm trying to make a project but I haven't purchased a board yet because I'm not sure which board to buy. So far, I've looked at the Zybo-Z7 or Arty-Z7. You will need to have these boards already obviously to complete this project.
They both have sample projects for HDMI in and HDMI out. What I'm trying to accomplish is have:
2) PC->USB-> FPGA
3) The PC will send information to the FPGA and create an overlay on the monitor. This software on the PC could be coded in C++ or C. Example, DrawText(x, y, "Truck #19 ready for shipment.")
There are many samples online but my knowledge is too limited to combine USB communication and Drawtext or shapes over the income HDMI feed from the PC.
I don't really know how long this will take since there's readily available HDMI passthrough sources online.
Thanks in advance!
