The wireless bandwidth explosion is driven by video/imaging. This brings system-wide challenges throughout the network to support the necessary throughput and latency. Enabling a superior user experience of video over wireless requires reducing the system-wide latency, where the system is a network of many basestations and devices, since the objective is to reduce the latency and buffering of a video cached at a datacenter being displayed on many handsets. One means to accomplish this is to put real-time video processing at the edge, which in this case is the PHY, just before transmission. This needs to happen both in the infrastructure, as well as in the devices. Video processing required at the edge includes real-time adaptive and dynamic video encoding, and video transcoding or transrating. Furthermore, in mobile devices augmented reality algorithms can enable a truly value-added experience by adding relevant information to the video/image being displayed. This is now possible due to high performance, low power multi-core processors like Coherent Logix’s HyperX™ platform.
