An overview is given of the approach followed by the parTool project in developing a parallel programming system. The key feature of parTool is a separation of algorithm specifications and the allocation of hardware resources to data and computations. Algorithms are formulated at an abstract level in a specification language having its own ideal virtual(More)
Changes in the quality of wireless links impose great demands on video codecs and underlying network layers when seamless video-streaming is to be achieved. Moreover, it is not enough that only the video codec or only the radio adapts to these changes; the efforts should he applied in both layers, and - if possible - synchronized. So, on the one hand, a(More)

How to develop efficient and scalable parallel applications is the key challenge for emerging many-core architectures. We investigate this question by implementing and comparing two parallel H.264 decoders on the Cell architecture. It is expected that future many-cores will use a Cell-like local store memory hierarchy, rather than a non-scalable shared(More)
