Format Conversion

This section describes Intel IPP functions that perform image color conversion without changing the color space. These functions convert pixel-order images to planar format and vice versa, change the number of channels or planes, alter sampling formats and sequences of samples and planes. Several functions additionally perform filtering - deinterlacing and upsampling.
Intel IPP format conversion functions are specified mainly in the YCbCr color space, but as they do not transform color model they may be used to perform described types of conversion for any other color spaces with decoupled luminance and chrominance coordinates (YUV type).

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.
