Paper Abstract

Image processing applications have traditionally been the domain of special-purpose pixel-processing machines. But with the introduction of graphics supercomputers last year, an entirely new class of imaging platforms has emerged. This class integrates into a single hardware platform the imaging functions that previously required multiple platforms, and provides a level of computational capability equal to, and in some cases greater than, that offered by specialized pixel-processing machines. At the same time, this new class offers a wider range of related computional and visualization features, such as geometry processing, real-time floating-point computation, compositing, high-level languages, and support for multiple users, among others.
