Features / Description

The Intel® Media SDK Interoperability sample demonstrates how to use Intel® Media SDK and OpenCL™ technology together for efficient video decoding and fast post-processing. Intel Media SDK is included as part of Intel® Media Server Studio.

Compatible version of the Intel® Media SDK is required for building and running the sample.

The sample demonstrates the Intel® Media SDK pipeline combined with post-processing filters in the OpenCL technology, showing how to:

  • Integrate processing with Intel® SDK for OpenCL Applications into Intel® Media SDK pipeline and get benefit from hardware-accelerated (if available) video decoding with Intel® Media SDK pipeline
  • Organize efficient sharing between Intel® Media SDK frames and OpenCL images by use of cl_khr_dx9_media_sharing extension
  • Implement simple video effects in OpenCL

Supported Devices: Intel® Processor Graphics
Supported OS: Windows* OS
Complexity Level: Advanced

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
