CUDA accelerated Dirac Video Decoder released

For the last months I’ve been working on a GPU accelerated version of the wavelet-based Dirac Video Codec. I am happy to announce that my work is finally in a state that it can be tested by others.

It shows how CUDA can be used to significantly accelerate video codecs in a platform independent way, without any shady “purevideo” madness. It is also a nice example of integrating CUDA into an existing library.

The library also takes advantage of asynchronous features to overlap GPU and CPU computing, as introduced in CUDA 1.1.

Cool stuff man !!! :))

Sorry to warm up such an old thread again, but is this code still actively updated and maintained? It would be a shame if it was just sitting there and collecting dust.

How is the scientific paper doing? As of today, there is no link on your page yet.

sorry, warming up a very old thread - all over again…

i wanted to know if this is still active ?

still now link of the paper on the page…
