May 2014 Embedded Vision Summit Technical Presentation: "The OpenVX Hardware Acceleration API for Embedded Vision Applications and Libraries," Neil Trevett, Khronos

Neil Trevett, President of Khronos and Vice President at NVIDIA, presents the "OpenVX Hardware Acceleration API for Embedded Vision Applications and Libraries" tutorial at the May 2014 Embedded Vision Summit.

This presentation introduces OpenVX, a new application programming interface (API) from the Khronos Group. OpenVX enables performance and power optimized vision algorithms for use cases such as face, body and gesture tracking, smart video surveillance, automatic driver assistance systems, object and scene reconstruction, augmented reality, visual inspection, robotics and more.

OpenVX enables significant implementation innovation while maintaining a consistent API for developers. OpenVX can be used directly by applications or to accelerate higher-level middleware with platform portability. OpenVX complements the popular OpenCV open source vision library that is often used for application prototyping.
