Processing of high-quality streams is quite computationally expensive at the same time as video processing applications are more and more deployed in small embedded systems that traditionally exhibit limited processing and network resources, e.g. set top boxes, mobile phones or PDAs. Hence, for some combinations of streams and devices, the timing constraints on stream processing within a functional component will not automatically be met.
This task of WP2 analyses the identified functional components of a breeze processing and transmission with respect to their impact on the timing of end-to-end delivery chain processing. In particular it identifies parameters at a high level of abstraction, i.e., hiding the full internal details (which are addressed in WP3). The analysis is based on the list of devices selected in WP1 and the resources identified in close collaboration with WP3.
WP2-3 results can be used to make trade-offs between timeliness, resource usage and energy consumption at system design time
