Abstract

The advent of media processors is facilitating the rapid implementation of multimedia processing algorithms in various applications. Multimedia processing presents challenges from the perspectives of both hardware and software. Media processing solutions include Intel MMX, embedded memory-based processor arrays, and special purpose media processors such as Trimedia. In general, there are two approaches for multimedia processor design namely: Dedicated and Programmable. The objective of this paper is to present a detailed categorization of the various architectural alternatives for multimedia processing based on the programmability of hardware and data distribution.
