The Cheops Imaging System is a compact, modular platform for acquisition, real-time processing, and display of digital video sequences and model-based representations of moving scenes. It is a laboratory tool and a prototype hardware and software architecture for future programmable video processors. Cheops abstracts out a set of basic, computationally intensive stream operations that may be performed in parallel and embodies them in specialized hardware. In order to simplify programming, a resource management daemon handles the real-time scheduling and allocation.
Cheops was developed as part of the Television of Tomorrow consortium at the MIT Media Lab.
