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
- 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.
