Intel Media SDK is a framework for developing media applications. It provides the hardware implementations for some of the founding algorithms for Media - encode, decode, video processing; and also exposes a numbers of relevant parameters that can be used to tune the application to one's need. The hardware implementation is the recommended implementation to use, but sometimes, the implementation can default to software due to the lack of underlying hardware.
Intel® VTune™ Amplifier for Systems is available through Intel(R) System Studio product. It is a software performance analysis tool for users developing serial and multithreaded applications on Embedded and Mobile system. VTune Amplifier supports multiple usage modes for various target systems depending on your development environment and target environment. In this article, we will describe the Vtune Amplifier usage modes and the recommended modes for different target systems.
There is a known compatibility problem between Hydra and versions 7.2 and 7.3 of the GNU* Debugger (gdb*). When running Hydra under one of these versions, Hydra will hang.
Please use a different version of gdb in order to run Hydra under gdb.
This has only been seen in Linux* at this time.
This paper describes application porting when using Intel® Compilers for Linux*. The Intel C/C++ compiler is compatible to the GNU* compilers in terms of source, binary and command-line compatibility. The Intel® C/C++ and Fortran Compilers help make your applications run at top speed on Intel's platforms, including those based on the IA-32, Intel® 64 and Intel® Xeon Phi architectures. The compilers also provide compatibility with commonly used Linux* software development tools.

Multicore processors have been around for many years, and today, they can be found in most devices. However, many developers are doing what they’ve always done: creating single-threaded programs. They’re not taking advantage of all the extra processing power. Imagine you have many tasks to perform and many people to perform them, but you are using only one person because you don’t know how to ask for more. It’s inefficient. Users are paying for extra power, but their software is not allowing them to use it.
The new Intel® RealSense™ technology offers amazing opportunities to completely redefine how we interact with our computing devices. To design a successful app for the Intel RealSense platform, you must understand its strengths. Make sure to take advantage of combining different input modalities. This will make it a more exciting and natural experience for the user, and can minimize fatigue of the hands, fingers, or voice.
