Accelerated Video Usage Models
Video Applications range from HD Video playback inside a movie player, a media center, or a web browser, with or without visual effects. Platforms featuring the Intel® Atom™ E6XX processor and the Intel® System Controller Hub US15W Chipset can run IEGD or Intel EMGD and make it possible to decode a HD video in the hardware, and ready the video for presentation in the various forms desired by the Linux application. Intel® Embedded Graphics driver(s), customized to the hardware, present this opportunity to the application by making efficient use of hardware resources such as the CPU, GPU, and the display controller. These driver(s) consume less power and conserve CPU/GPU bandwidth when possible.
This paper will present examples of innovative hardware accelerated video usage models that can be enabled using platforms featuring the Intel® Atom™ E6XX processor and the Intel® System Controller Hub US15W Chipset.
