OpenCL*

OpenCL enables viable software implementations of complex video algorithms, and dramatically lowers the cost of the end product. Examples of broadcast applications include:

  • Acquisition: Real-time debayering of raw camera data, scaling for multiviewers, etc.
  • Post-production: Color grading, motion estimation, special effects rendering, etc.
  • Distribution: 3D/temporal noise reduction, H.264 compression, etc.
  • Consumption: JPEG2000 decoding for 4K digital cinema playout, block artifact reduction filters, etc.

Furthermore, running OpenCL on the Advanced Systems Development Kit gives you several unique advantages including:

  • The best performance per watt consumed, so you enjoy OpenCL’s benefits without power and heat issues from graphic processing units (GPUs)
  • The ability to assimilate, manipulate, and transport multichannel video on a single board
  • The highest level of integration to achieve maximum channel density for your end product

For more information, visit the OpenCL page.
