In order to scale video image real-timely, a GPU-aided parallel interpolation algorithm was proposed. Catmull-Rom Spline algorithm for image zooming was reformed into SIMD (Single instruction, multiple data) mode according to CUDA programming model. Re-sampling of each pixel was completed by a GPU thread. Hence, time-consuming re-sampling procedure of the whole zooming process were handled by parallel threads. The proposed algorithm runs hundreds times faster than traditional algorithm in experiments, and the speed is fast enough for scaling video frames real-timely. In addition, this algorithm can be extended to solve many other image processing related problems, such as image denosing and image segmentation.

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.
