In this paper, we present the design and implementation of an Open Computing Language (OpenCL) framework that targets heterogeneous accelerator multicore architectures with local memory. The architecture consists of a general-purpose processor core and multiple accelerator cores that typically do not have any cache. Each accelerator core, instead, has a(More)
In this paper, we propose parallelization and optimization techniques of the H.264 decoder for the Cell BE processor. We exploit both frame-level parallelism and macroblock pipelining. The major bottleneck in achieving the real-time performance is the entropy decoding stage, CABAC. Our decoder eliminates this bottleneck by exploiting the frame-level(More)
The bit allocation problem for hierarchical B-pictures in H.264/SVC is studied with a GOP-based dependent distortion model in this work. Inter-dependency between temporal layers of H.264/SVC is often neglected because of the complexity involved, which often leads to poorer rate control performance. To address this shortcoming, we propose a distortion model(More)
Graphene grown by high temperature molecular beam epitaxy on hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) forms continuous domains with dimensions of order 20 μm, and exhibits moiré patterns with large periodicities, up to ~30 nm, indicating that the layers are highly strained. Topological defects in the moiré patterns are observed and attributed to the relaxation of(More)
A GOP-based rate control algorithm for hierarchical B-pictures in H.264/SVC is proposed in this work. The problem is firstly formulated as a bit allocation problem among different temporal layers. Due to the dependency of these layers, we propose a Q-selection tree solution framework. The monotonicity property is exploited to prune the Q-selection tree.(More)
A bandwidth-efficient video streaming algorithm over the cdma2000 1x EV-DO network using GOP-based priority scheduling is proposed in this work. The proposed algorithm performs an application adaptation by considering the postchannel status to cope with the fluctuating wireless mobile radio channel. The peak-signal-to-noise-ratio (PSNR) value and the number(More)
In this work, a simplified rate control algorithm is proposed for non-conversational H.264 video applications. When a GOP (group of pictures) structure is imposed on an encoded video, a bit rate control and a bit allocation among frames are two important components of a rate control algorithm. We employ a GOP rate model and the monotonicity property to(More)
