Video Image Compositor (VIC)

Saw this at NVIDIA.

The Video Image Compositor (VIC) is a fixed-functionality processor in Jetson devices that is specialized for low-level image processing tasks, such as

  • Rescaling
  • color space conversion
  • noise reduction
  • Image compositing

What is the point of a VIC when you have a GPU?

Like a PVA backend, a VIC backend allows you to offload tasks from the GPU, leaving it free for other processing, if performance is not at a premium.
