Name:Doug Watt (GPU Computer Program Manager)Salvatore De Dominicis (Customer Support Engineer)
Tool:Using an IMG GPU to reduce energy consumption of common image filters

Abstract  : IMG has developed a real-time image filtering application, which is run on an Pandaboard (OMAP4 SoC). The filters can be configured to run on a single CPU thread, two CPU threads or the GPU. This demonstration uses a probe to measure energy consumption in all three scenarios, showing that the GPU consumes the least energy per frame.
