For the »Moving Picture Technologies« division in Erlangen, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is currently seeking a

Student Assistant / Intern for the Implementation of JPEG-XS image coding Algorithm on GPU

JPEG XS is the new ISO/IEC codec targeting a wide range of applications including IP workflows in studio environments, local video networks and VR/AR applications, which allows transmission of high-resolution video data over standard Ethernet or other wired connections. It is visually lossless, low latency and low complexity codec.

One of outstanding attributes of JPEG XS is multi-platform interoperability, which means that a code stream generated using an FPGA can be decoded using a GPU. Moreover, its use cases require real time implementation on different platforms including CPU, GPU and FPGAs. In order to best exploit these platforms, JPEG XS supports different levels of parallelism e.g. coarse gained and fine grained.

At Fraunhofer IIS, our group aims to have a GPU based implementation of JPEG XS codec. For this purpose, we are looking for a student to support the design and implementation of parallel (GPU based) algorithms for different coding steps defined in JPEG XS standard.
