Interoperability with other APIs

The general approach to sharing data between OpenVX* and media/graphics APIs like Intel® Media Server Studio or OpenGL* is based on sharing the system memory. That is, in your code you should map or copy the data from the API to the CPU address space first. Then the resulting pointer can be wrapped as OpenVX image. Alternatively, the data (the pointer references to) can be copied to OpenVX object, to unlock the original data (and return ownership to another API).
Similarly, OpenVX data can be accessed on the host and its bits copied or wrapped to the data object of another API. Notice, though, that most APIs do not support memory layouts with strides between pixels that are possible in OpenVX, so your data sharing routine should respect the strides.
In any case, to update the OpenVX image or read data from it, you must use map/unmap methods.

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.
