Vivante announces IP solution compliant with the OpenVX 1.0 specification. Vivante says its OpenVX compliant GC7000-XS VX allows high-level deeply-embedded devices to optimize their real time performance for minimal power consumption by allowing continuous sensory vision processes to function without fully powering on the GPU.
"OpenVX can be used directly by applications or to accelerate higher-level middleware, including the popular OpenCV vision library, which is often used for application prototyping. It is also an ideal foundation for use in production systems, with extensive conformance tests to complement a focused and tightly defined specification for consistent and reliable operation across multiple vendors and platforms. Like other Khronos specifications, OpenVX is extensible to meet individual customer needs before an extension is integrated into the core specification." explains Vivante in its release.
“I am excited to see Vivante release the first of what we believe will be many IP solutions leveraging the power of OpenVX,” said Victor Erukhimov, CEO of Itseez and Chairman of the Khronos OpenVX working group. “Performance and area-optimized OpenVX GPUs like Vivante’s will enable the next generation of computer vision processing in embedded and real-time applications, including face, body and gesture tracking, smart video surveillance, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), object and scene reconstruction, augmented reality, visual inspection, robotics and more."
