Learning objectives:
  To inform the students about hardware support and implementation of graphical amultimedia operations and making use of OpenCL language for image information processing. Newly CUDA tool was adopted for programming GPGPU.
Description:
  Colour models. Principles of 2D/3D graphics. Algorithms for computer graphics and computational complexity. First and second generation of graphical processors - TMS34010/20, TIGA, Trio64V+, Intel i860, Savage3D, Intel740, Permedia, RIVA TNT. Organization of video memory. Parallelization of geometry engine. Multiprocessor raster architectures - image and object parallelization. Texture mapping and compression, pixel interpolation. Graphical multiprocessors. GPGPU.  Quantization. Predictive coding. Cosine and wavelet transform. Motion compensation and hybrid coding. Subband coding and vector quantization. Standards for image, video and audio transmission - JPEG, ITU-T H.261, MPEG-1, 2, 4, 7. Signal processors. Multimedia processors - VLIW, Mpact, CyberPro. Multimedia extensions of instruction set x86 - MMX, SIMD. Game consoles.
