Abstract:

The objective of this contract is to provide a continuous, real-time video system simulation capability to DARPA and the U.S. Government. The simulation of video is real-time is a computationally intense problem. In the case of the NTSC video standard, a complete receiver function would require about 560 Giga-operationss for real-time performance in which an operation is defined as a single bit operation. In the case of the newly proposed HDTV standards, the computational needs are enormous-growing to over 60 Tera- operationss. In addition, the IO system of such a computer must be able to sustain a data rate of at least 380 Mbytess. The David Sarnoff Research Center has developed a massively parallel computer technology known as the Princeton Engine, which can meet the computational requirements noted above for the NTSC video standard.
