Paper Abstract

Image compression has a number of applications in various fields, where processing throughput and/or latency is a crucial attribute and the main limitation of state-of-the-art implementations of compression algorithms. At the same time contemporary GPU platforms provide tremendous processing power but they call for specific algorithm design. We discuss key components of successful design of compression algorithms for GPUs and demonstrate this on JPEG and JPEG2000 implementations, each of which contains several types of algorithms requiring different approaches to efficient parallelization for GPUs. Performance evaluation of the optimized JPEG and JPEG2000 chain is used to demonstrate the importance of various aspects of GPU programming, especially with respect to real-time applications.
