Video processing algorithms present a very important tool for many applications related to computer vision domain such as motion tracking, videos indexation, robot navigation and event detection. However, the new video standards, especially in high definitions, cause that the current implementations, even running on modern hardware, no longer respect the needs of real-time processing. In this context, several solutions have been proposed to overcome this constraint, by exploiting graphic processing units (GPUs). Although, they present a high potential of GPU, any is able to treat high definition videos efficiently. This paper presents a real time method that enables to detect portions of video that correspond to sudden changes of motion variations of movements. Experimental results have been conducted using several videos showing several events that have been detected within different scenarios. The simultaneous exploitation of multiple GPUs enabled a real time treatment of high definition videos with a global speedup ranging from 5 to 33, by comparison with CPU implementations.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.

The information send to hgpu.org will be treated according to our Privacy Policy
