Choose the Right Path to Enable Media Hardware Acceleration
This paper provides detailed guidance for choosing the right media development Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for different retail usage models and devices on Windows* 7 and Windows* 8 operating systems (OSs). When ISVs make decisions on which approach to take for their own media applications, there are five key factors that may influence their decisions: hardware investment, software resource investment, performance, flexibility, and software implementation speed.
This paper does not include implementation details, but does provide related media references, such as Intel® Media Software Development Kit (SDK) and other media development APIs, to help Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) develop their media content as the next step.
