Parallel Video Processing

The requirements for high quality images for broadcasting and some of the advanced applications like Virtual Studios, tele-presence and Virtual Reality require much more powerful computational facilities than is available today. Parallel processing offers a scalable solution in order to meet the stringent real time requirements.

For a recently completed EU project in Virtual Studios a novel parallel architecture has been developed (ML-PVA Mona Lisa- Parallel Video Accelerator) to handle TV quality video streams in real time. The current project AMPA is investigating the use of parallel high performance multimedia chips as an accelerator for video processing.
