Abstract: GPU-based Video Processing

Recent proliferation of various video sources and the ease of digital distribution has resulted in an exponential rise in the amount of video data that needs to be processed, both during the mission (in real time), and post-mission (offline). Historically, custom application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have been required for all demanding image processing tasks.

Now, graphics processors (GPUs) provide orders of magnitude more computing power at a fraction of the cost. In this talk, you will hear how MotionDSP uses GPUs to provide previously-unattainable video processing capabilities to full motion video (FMV) applications.

The talk will also include a demonstration of the Ikena software and will provide the details on the design and performance challenges of MotionDSP’s video technology.MotionDSP makes advanced video processing software. MotionDSP’s “Ikena” products improve the quality of video captured by a wide range of sources–from surveillance cameras to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in law enforcement, homeland security, and military applications. MotionDSP’s technology supports operational deployments within the Department of Defense and National Intelligence communities, and its customers include some of the world’s leading video forensic labs, such as the London Metropolitan Police and the US Secret Service. Results from Ikena have been used successfully in court cases in both the US and UK.
