Abstract

High speed image and video processing is a key technology in multi-media applications, and, therefore, currently many hardware accelerators to speed up such processing are developed and used. However, for the next generation advanced multi-media applications in the next generation, such as high quality virtual reality, bidirectional visual interface, etc., the hardware accelerators can not deal with tasks involved in these applications. This is because these tasks consist of complex and irregular computation structures, and, therefore, it is not easy to implement simple hardware accelerators for these tasks. Considering the above situation, for the next generation multi-media applications, we have been developing a MIMD based multi-media processor, KUMP/D(Kyushu University Multi-media Processor on Datarol-II). KUMP/D is a flexible parallel processor, based on fine grain parallel processing, which is which indispensable in complex and irregular computation, and is also equipped with a specialized I/O network. This I/O network has enough throughput for real time video I/O, providing a mechanism, which supports the synchronization of process executions and real time video frames.
