Vitis Codec and Hardware Acceleration - 2023.2 English

Vitis Libraries

Release Date
2023.2 English

Image encoding and decoding (codec in short) are very common and important operations in Internet applications. The Vitis Codec library provides a set of acceleration APIs to accelerate image encoding, decoding and other related algorithms. This tutorial will be based on the popular JPEG decoding and WebP encoding to show how to accelerate image codec projects by using these APIs.

The tutorial includes four labs:

  • Lab-1: How Vitis Codec Library Works
  • Lab-2: Using L1-level API to evaluate JPEG decoding acceleration
  • Lab-3: Using L2-level API to implement a single-kernel acceleration for JPEG decoding
  • Lab-4: Using multi-kernel solution to accelerate WebP encoding based on open-source project
