The evolution and refinement of media-processing hardware has just begun. As programmable processors or coprocessors with media-processing enhancements gradually replace fixed-function, special-purpose devices, compiler support for these features will also improve. Today, an application developer who organizes program and data structures to exploit media-processing hardware achieves the best performance. Eventually, language extensions will probably emerge to support improved programmer efficiency without loss of application performance. Media processing - with its almost limitless appetite for computational power - provides an exciting new target for hardware and software design innovation.
