Video rate computational photography now running at Full HD resolution using OpenCL

Imagination Technologies has implemented a set of image and video handling extensions to the EGL Native Platform Interface to enable developers to create high-performance GPU compute applications on the new low-cost Hardkernel ODROID-XU development system. The new OpenCL API extensions enable developers to implement Instagram-like functionality on real-time camera data, including computational photography and video processing, while offloading the main CPU by providing resource sharing and interoperability between the camera pipeline, OpenGL ES graphics and OpenCL compute APIs. Imagination will be releasing the PowerVR GPU compute SDK and programming guidelines for PowerVR Series5XT GPUs and there is an upcoming release of the popular PowerVR Graphics SDK v3.2 featuring OpenCL support in PVRTrace for PowerVR Series6 GPUs.
