Media SDK是一个软件开发库，包含解码、视频处理和编码三大模块。利用Intel®平台的硬件加速能力， Media SDK为低端用户提供了优秀的高清视频质量，极大的降低了播放高清视频的硬件门槛。此外，强大的视频APIs也减轻了程序开发者的工作负担，使他们能够集中精力去处理程序的逻辑模块，而不必关心于Media SDK内部的复杂编解码逻辑及其如何提高效率。本篇文章将着重讲述如何利用Media SDK提高程序的效率，面对的读者主要是视音频程序开发人员。
When installing or uninstalling Intel® Parallel Studio 2011 on a system with Microsoft* Visual Studio 2010*, you may see the error message "HelpLibAgent.exe has stopped working":
Select "Close the program" to continue.
This error does not prevent the installation or uninstallation of Intel Parallel Studio 2011. It is an issue from a 3rd party tool. It does no harm to your system.
Our East coast Parallelism Road Show was a success, and having finally caught up with some of the work that piled up while I was gone, I’ll squeeze enough time at least to add a footnote to a previous rambling.
Last time when I resumed the exploration of my simple n-body gravitational simulator, I produced some performance numbers and revealed that there is a flaw in the first parallel version of the algorithm. But then Intel® Parallel Composer Update 5 was released last week, so I updated my tools. That means I need a new benchmark run to see how the baseline has been affected.
