Multimedia processing

In multimedia applications, audio and video processing is the major challenge embedded systems have to face. It is computationally intensive with power requirements to meet. Video or image processing at pixel level, like image filtering, edge detection and pixel correlation or at bloc level such as transforms, quantization, entropy coding and motion estimation have to be accelerated. We investigate the potential of reconfigurable architectures for the design of efficient and flexible accelerators in the context of multimedia applications.
