OpenCL Extension #50
Status
First Draft
Dependencies
OpenCL 1.2 is required.
The OpenCL Intel vendor extension cl_intel_subgroups is required. The
VME built-in functions are an extension of the subgroup functions
defined in cl_intel_subgroups.
The built-in functions which perform intra estimation depend on the
OpenCL Intel vendor extension cl_intel_media_block_io in order to
read-in the neighboring macroblock edge pixels.
The built-in functions which perform chroma based intra estimation
operations depend on the OpenCL Intel vendor extension
cl_intel_planar_yuv in order to create NV12 source images.
This extension is written against revision 29 of the OpenCL 2.0 API
specification, against revision 33 of the OpenCL 2.0 OpenCL C
specification, and against revision 32 of the OpenCL 2.0 extension
specification.
Overview
Video motion estimation (VME) is defined as of set motion estimation
operations that are used to determine the motion vectors, intra
estimation angles and macroblock partitioning combination that best
describe the transformation to the source macroblock, from blocks in
one or more previous reference pictures (inter-prediction), or from
other blocks in the same source picture (intra-prediction). It does
this by searching for spatial and temporal patterns on the current and
various forward and backward reference pictures.
The goal of this extension is to provide programmers with a fine-
grained interface to the AVC VME media sampler in Intel graphics
processors. It describes the specification of low-level built-in
functions, callable from OpenCL kernels, that facilitate the
programming of the VME media sampler to evaluate specific AVC motion
estimation operations. If only a coarser-level interface at the level
of built-in kernels suffices, then the Intel vendor extensions
cl_intel_motion_estimation and cl_advanced_motion_estimation may be
considered.
Built-in functions are defined for all the major operations of the VME
media sampler. The major operations of the AVC VME media sampler in
Intel Graphics Processors can be described as follows:
1. Integer motion estimation (IME)
Perform motion estimation on a given source macroblock in
a source image over a single or dual reference window in a
reference image, at full-pixel resolution, to determine the
best integer motion vectors and their associated distortions,
and the best macroblock shape partitioning combination.
2. Motion estimation refinement (REF)
Perform refinement operations on the results of IME. The two sub-
operations are:
Fractional motion estimation (FME)
Perform sub-pixel refinement on the results of an IME operation.
half-pixel (HPEL) or quarter-pixel (QPEL) refinements are performed
to determine the best sub-pixel motion vectors and their associated
distortions.
Bidirectional motion estimation (BME)
Perform bidirectional refinement on the results of an IME
operation using two reference images to check if the bidirectional
mode using two references yields lesser distortions. An FME can
optionally be performed implicitly as part of a bidirectional
refinement.
3. Skip and Intra check (SIC)
Performs the following two sub-operations:
Skip check (SKC)
Compute the pixel distortion of a user-specified shape and motion
vector combination. The VME media sampler fetches necessary pixels,
performs fractional and bidirectional filtering (as necessary), and
then computes the distortion between the derived reference and
source. The skip decision can optionally be enhanced to include a
4x4 forward transform, the results of which are compared against a
user specified threshold to emulate the effects of the forward
quantization zeroing effect.
Intra prediction estimation (IPE)
Perform intra prediction on a given source macroblock to determine
the best intra prediction modes and the best shape partitioning
combination.

Terms, Acronyms and Definitions
Adds a new section 6.13.14.X "VME built-in functions" to the OpenCL
2.0 C specification.
"
The following terms, acronyms and definitions are used in and
provide context for the VME built-in functions.
Macro-block (MB):
-----------------
An image is partitioned into macro-blocks of size 16x16 pixels. It is
the basic unit of processing for AVC video motion estimation
operations.
Shape:
------
A MB may be partitioned into sub-blocks of one of the major shapes. A
sub-block with an 8x8 major shape may be further independently
partitioned into sub-blocks of one of the minor shapes. It is
represented by pre-defined shape enumeration values.
Major Shapes:
-------------
Shapes of 16x16, 16x8, 8x16, or 8x8 partitions of a MB. A 16x16 major
shape merely indicates that the MB was not further partitioned.
Minor Shapes:
-------------
Shapes of 8x8, 8x4, 4x8, or 4x4 sub-partitions of an 8x8 partition. A
8x8 minor shape merely indicates that the 8x8 major partition was not
further sub-partitioned.
Block:
------
A sub-block of a MB with one of the major or minor shapes.
Reference Image:
----------------
An image (typically from the previously decoded buffer in an encoder
pipeline) from which motion estimation predictions are made.
Source Image:
-------------
The current image for which motion estimation predictions are made.
Source Macro-block Offset:
--------------------------
The 2D offset of the top left corner of the source MB in pixel units.
It is represented by a pair of unsigned 16-bit integers.
Reference Window Offset:
------------------------
The 2D offset of the top left corner reference search window w.r.t to
the top left corner of the source MB in pixel units. It is represented
by a pair of signed 16-bit integers in the range [-2048, 2047].
Reference identifier:
---------------------
Reference identifiers are associated to pairs of forward(L0)/
backward(L1) reference image parameters. Up to 16 pairs of reference
pairs of reference image parameters are permitted, with the permitted
values of reference identifiers ranging from 0 to 15. The reference
identifers are assigned in increasing order in which the reference
image parameter pairs are declared in the OpenCL kernel parameter
list. See new section 6.13.14.X "VME built-in functions" described
below for more details.
Motion Vector (MV):
-------------------
A 2D vector used for inter motion estimation that provides an offset
from the top left corner of a block in the source image to the top
left corner an identically sized block in the reference image.
Generally it is used to represent the best match of a block in the
reference image to a block in the source image. The best match is
determined as the block minimizing the distortion. MVs are specified
in QPEL resolution with the 2 LSB representing the fractional part
of the offset. It is represented by a pair of signed 16-bit signed
integers.
Packed Motion Vector:
--------------------------
A motion vector represented as a packed 32-bit unsigned integer. The
lower 16 bits contains the X coordinate and the upper 16 bits contains
the Y coordinate.
Bidirectional Motion Vector (BMV):
----------------------------------
A pair of MVs for the forward(L0) and backward(L1) images. Depending
on how the VME operation is configured only the forward or the
backward MV or both may be valid.
Packed Bidirectional Motion Vector:
-----------------------------------
A bidirectional MV represented as a packed 64-bit unsigned integer.
The lower 32-bits contain the forward packed MV, and the upper 32-bits
contain the backward packed MV.
Sum Of Absolute Difference (SAD):
---------------------------------
The sum of absolute differences of every full/sub-pixel location in
the source block w.r.t every corresponding full/sub pixel in the
reference block as specified by a given MV. The sum of absolute
differences may be optionally Haar transform adjusted. It is
represented by an unsigned 16-bit integer value.
Haar Transform (HAAR):
----------------------
A simple wavelet transform that is used to refine the distortion
measure of SAD. The per pixel difference goes through a 4x4 Haar
transform. Then the SAD is replaced by the sum of the absolute
values of the transform domain coefficients in the distortion. Haar
transform is used as a coarse estimation of the integer transform.
Motion Vector Cost Center (CC):
-------------------------------
A MV has an associated cost w.r.t a cost center coordinate. The
further away from the cost center, the larger will be the cost
associated with the MV. Cost centers are specified in QPEL resolution
with the 2 LSB representing the fractional part of the offset.
Motion Vector Cost Center Delta (CCD):
--------------------------------------
The 2D offset of the cost center relative to the top left corner of
the source MB. Cost center deltas are specified in QPEL resolution
with the 2 LSB representing the fractional part of the offset.
It is represented by a pair of signed 16-bit integers.
Packed Motion Vector Cost Center Delta:

unsigned integer. The lower 16 bits contains the X coordinate and the
upper 16 bits contains the Y coordinate.
Bidirectional Motion Vector Cost Center Delta:
----------------------------------------------
A pair of cost center deltas for the forward and backward images.
Packed Bidirectional Motion Vector Cost Center Delta:
-----------------------------------------------------

a 64-bit unsigned integer. The lower 32-bits contain the forward
packed CCD, and the upper 32-bits contain the backward packed CCD.
Motion Vector Cost:
-------------------
The MV cost is determined using a cost function described by a cost
table that is indexed based on power-of-two distances from the user
specified cost center, with a user specified precision (or unit) of
the distances from the cost center.
U4U4 Byte Format:
-----------------
Represents a value of (B<<S), where B, called base, is the 4 bit
LSB of the byte and S, called shift, is the 4 bit MSB of the byte.
Motion Vector Cost Table:
-------------------------
A table which specifies the cost penalties at 8 control points. The
first 7 control points represent the distances from cost center at
powers-of-two locations (2^0 to 2^6), and the last control point
represents the base penalty for distances that are out of range of the
cost function curve. It is represented by a packed array of 8 U4U4
unsigned integer values.
Motion Vector Cost Precision:
-----------------------------
The precision (or unit) of the control points in the MV cost table.
It can be used to control the precision and range of the cost
function. It is represented by pre-defined cost precision enumeration
values.
Shape Cost:

predicted intra mode based on the computed intra modes for its
neighboring blocks.
Mode:
-----
The decision whether the inter-prediction or intra-prediction
minimizes distortion of a given MB.
Search unit (SU):
-----------------

predefined groups are called search units.
Search Path (SP):
-----------------
The path taken during searching in a reference window. The steps taken
in a search path are in units of SUs. The search path must lie within
the defined search window.
Luma:
-----
Luma refers to either the Y-plane of a NV12 image or a regular image
with the image_channel_order and image_data_type restricted as CL_R
and CL_UNORM_INT8.
Chroma:
------
Chroma refer to the UV-plane of a NV12 image.

+---------+----------------------------------------------------------+
|sampler_t|A texture or media sampler type. Refer to section 6.13.14 |
| |for a detailed description the built-in functions that use|
| |of this type. |
| | |
| |In general, the use of the word "sampler" by itself refers|
| |to a texture sampler. A media sampler will be explicitly |
| |refered to as "media sampler". |
| | |
| |In general, sampler_t parameters of built-in functions |
| |refer to texture sampler parameter. Media sampler |
| |parameters are exclusively used in the VME built-in |
| |functions (described in new section 6.13.14.X "VME |
| |built-in functions"). |
+---------+----------------------------------------------------------+
Amends the restrictions defined for sampler types in (b) section 6.9
"Restrictions".
"...
The texture sampler type (sampler_t) can only be used as the type of
a function argument or a variable declared in the program scope or
the outermost scope of a kernel function. The behavior of a sampler
variable declared in a non-outermost scope of a kernel function is
implementation-defined. The media sampler type cannot be used as a
function argument of a kernel function, but otherwise can be used as
the type of a function argument or a variable declared in any scope.
... "
Amends the following section 6.13.14.1 "Samplers".
Replace all strings "sampler(s)" with "texture sampler(s)".
Appends the following paragraphs in section 6.13.14.1 "Samplers".
"The VME evaluation phase built-in functions (described in new section
6.13.14.X "VME built-in functions" take a VME media sampler argument.
The media sampler can be declared as a constant variable in any scope,
and must be initialized with the 32-bit unsigned integer constant
CLK_AVC_ME_INITIALIZE_INTEL."
Note that VME media samplers declared using the constant qualifier are
not counted towards the maximum size of constant address space allowed
per device (i.e. CL_DEVICE_MAX_CONSTANT_BUFFER_SIZE as described in
table 4.3)
Amends the following section 6.13.14.2 "Built-in Image Read
Functions".
"The following built-in function calls to read images with a texture
sampler are supported."
Amends the following section 6.13.14.3 "Built-in Image Sampler-less
Read Functions".
"The sampler-less read image functions behave exactly as the
corresponding read image functions described in section 6.13.14.2
that take integer coordinates and a texture sampler with filter mode
set to CLK_FILTER_NEAREST, normalized coordinates set to
CLK_NORMALIZED_COORDS_FALSE and addressing mode to CLK_ADDRESS_NONE"
New OpenCL C built-in functions
Appends the following to the new section 6.13.14.X "VME built-in
functions".
"
The OpenCL C programming language implements the following built-in
functions to evaluate VME operations as a block operation by all work-
items in a subgroup. Furthermore they are defined only for subgroup
size of 16, and thus using these built-in functions in a kernel will
force a subgroup size of 16. The use of kernel attribute
intel_reqd_sub_group_size with a value other than 16 as described in
the Intel vendor extension cl_intel_required_subgroup_size is not
allowed.
These built-in functions are defined to operate on a 16x16 MB and must
be encountered by all work items in a subgroup executing the kernel,
otherwise the behavior is undefined (i.e. they can only be used only
in convergent control flow where all the work-items in the subgroups
are enabled).
______________________________________________________________________
If VME built-in functions are used in an OpenCL kernel, then the
following additional requirements must be satisfied.
1. The VME source and reference images must either be 8-bit luma
2D images, or planar YUV images with NV12 format. If chroma based
intra estimation operations are being performed, then NV12 source
images are required, otherwise either 8-bit luma or NV12 images may
be used. For 8-bit luma images, the image_channel_order and the
image_data_type are restricted as CL_R and CL_UNORM_INT8
respectively. NV12 images are described in the Intel vendor
extension cl_intel_planar_yuv. Images created from buffers are not
allowed as VME source and reference images.
2. OpenCL image kernel parameters that are used as VME source and
reference images in the VME evaluation built-in functions must
exclusively be used only by VME built-in functions. If the same
image needs to be used for other image operations within the same
kernel, then an additional image parameter may be used that is
bound to the same image object as for the VME image parameter in
the OpenCL host application for the kernel enqueue API call.
3. OpenCL image kernel parameters that are used as VME source and
reference images in the VME evaluation built-in functions must be
declared in a specific order in the kernel parameter list of a
kernel that calls any of the VME built-in functions as shown below;
otherwise it will result in a complier reported error.
+-----------------------------------------------+
| __kernel void vme_custom( |
| read_only image2d_t src_image, |
| read_only image2d_t fwd0_ref_image, |
| read_only image2d_t bwd0_ref_image, |
| read_only image2d_t fwd1_ref_image, |
| read_only image2d_t bwd1_ref_image, |
| ... |
| read_only image2d_t fwd15_ref_image, |
| read_only image2d_t bwd15_ref_image, |
| ...) |
+-----------------------------------------------+
The first forward(L0) reference image parameter must immediately
follow the source image parameter, and the first backward(L1)
reference image parameter must immediately follow the first forward
reference image parameter. Up to 16 consecutive pairs of forward
and backward reference image parameters can be provided, with the
reference images closer to the source image in timing order
appearing earlier in the parameter list.
______________________________________________________________________
The VME built-in functions are organized into categories of functions
based on the major VME operations as follows:
1. MCE built-in functions
--------------------------
A set of generic built-in functions which are common across IME, REF,
or SIC operations. Certain functions may not be applicable for some
specific operation as indicated in their descriptions.
2. IME built-in functions
-------------------------
A set of built-in functions to initialize, configure and evaluate an
integer motion estimation result.
3. REF built-in functions
-------------------------
A set of built-in functions to initialize, configure and evaluate a
fractional and/or bidirectional refinement operation on the results
of IME built-in functions.
4. SIC built-in functions
-------------------------
A set of built-in functions to initialize, configure and evaluate a
skip check or intra estimation operation result.
______________________________________________________________________
A set of ordered phases of built-in functions need to be called to
evaluate each category of built-in functions. Some phases may not be
specified for certain function categories, but if present it must be
called in the correct order, otherwise the behavior is undefined.
1. Initialization (required phase)
---------------------------------
This creates and initializes the payload for the VME operation and
may perform some basic configuration that invariably must be set.
2. Operation configuration (required phase, if present)
------------------------------------------------------
This configures important sets of parameters for the VME operation
that were not set in the initialization phase in the payload.
3. Inter reference frame cost configuration (optional phase)
-----------------------------------------------------------
This configures the cost assigned to matching blocks in reference
frames based on timing distance from the source frame.
4. Inter motion vector/Intra mode cost configuration (optional phase)
--------------------------------------------------------------------
This configures the inter motion vector cost function or the intra
mode cost function to be used for the VME operation in the payload.
5. Inter/Intra shape cost configuration (optional phase)
-------------------------------------------------------
This configures the inter/intra shape cost penalty to be used for the
VME operation in the payload.
6. Miscellaneous property configuration (optional phase)
-------------------------------------------------------
This configures miscellaneous operation sub-functions in the VME
operation payload.
7. Evaluation (required phase)
-----------------------------
This phase performs the evaluation of the VME operation using the
payload configured in the previous phases by issuing it to the VME
unit for processing.
8. Result processing (required phase)
------------------------------------
The phase performs the extraction of various motion estimation
operation component results from the result of the evaluation phase.
The result components may be distributed among multiple work-items.
The results components of one VME operation may be used as input to
another VME operation at phase (1) or phase (7).
A set of built-in functions are defined for each of the major VME
operations of IME, REF, and SIC (SKC and IPE). These are categorized
as IME, REF, and SIC built-in functions. Functions that are common
across all categories are classified as MCE (motion check and
estimation) functions. Several restrictions for function argument
values are stated in the descriptions of the built-in function
descriptions. In general, if the restrictions are not satisfied the
behavior is undefined, unless otherwise stated.
______________________________________________________________________
MCE built-in functions
----------------------
A set of generic MCE operations which may be called for IME, REF, or
SIC operations with the restrictions as stated in their descriptions.
They can be called only during specific phases of these operations as
indicated in the description of the built-in functions.
Multi-reference cost configuration phase functions
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These built-in functions enable multi-reference image costing. They
allow for the configuration of the payloads to favorably bias the
major partitions coming from reference images that are closer to the
source image, than the ones coming from reference images that are
further away. The distance of the reference images, in the timing
order, from the source image is implied based on the order in which
the reference images are declared in the kernel parameter list.

Inter shape and direction cost configuration phase functions
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These built-in functions enable shape costing for inter estimation.
They allow for the configuration of payloads for the biasing of
certain shapes over others based on the configured parameters.
+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+

+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
Intra shape cost configuration phase functions
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These built-in functions enable shape costing for intra estimation.
They allow for the configuration of payloads for biasing of certain
shapes over others based on the configured parameters. Only the built-
in function providing the default shape penalty is specified as an MCE
function. The function which actually configures the payload for the
intra estimation operation is specified as a SIC built-in function.

|uint intel_sub_group_avc_mce_get_ |Get the default packed luma |
|default_intra_luma_shape_penalty( |intra shape penalty in U4U4 |

Inter motion vector cost configuration phase functions
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These built-in functions enable motion vector costing for inter
estimation. The distortion measure is augmented to favor motion
vectors closer to the cost-center considered in conjunction with the
primary objective of minimizing the SAD between the source and
reference blocks.
+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
|uint2 intel_sub_group_avc_mce_get_ |Get the default inter motion |
|default_inter_motion_vector_ |vector cost table for the |
|cost_table( |pre-defined control points in |
| uchar slice_type, |U4U4 format for the input Qp |

+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
|uint2 intel_sub_group_avc_mce_get_ |Get the default predefined |
|default_high_penalty_cost_table( |packed U4U4 format high cost |
| void) |table for high Qp. This may be |
| |more appropriate for frame |
| |sequences with high motion. |
+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
|uint2 intel_sub_group_avc_mce_get_ |Get the default predefined |
|default_medium_penalty_cost_table( |packed U4U4 format medium cost |
| void) |table for medium Qp. This may |
| |be more appropriate for frame |
| |sequences with normal motion. |
+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
|uint2 intel_sub_group_avc_mce_get_ |Get the default predefined |

| ulong packed_cost_center_delta, |and return it. |
| uint2 packed_cost_table, | |
| uchar cost_precision, |The value of |
| intel_sub_group_avc_mce_payload_t|packed_cost_center_delta is the|
| payload ) |packed bidirectional cost |
| |center delta value relative to |
| |the source macroblock, which |
| |specifies the 4 bidirectional |
| |cost centers of each of the 8x8|
| |partitions of the reference |
| |image. If only unidirectional |
| |search is performed then the |
| |values of the backward |
| |reference cost centers must be |
| |zero. Work-item 'n' provides |
| |the value of cost center |
| |'n'. It is specified in QPEL |
| |units. For 16x16 partitions |
| |work-item '0' provides the cost|
| |center. For 8x16 partitions |
| |work-items '0' and '1' provide |
| |the cost centers. For 16x8 |
| |partitions work-items '0' and |
| |'2' provide the cost |
| |centers. The X and Y |
| |coordinates of each cost center|
| |delta must be in the range |
| |[-2048, 2047] and [-512.00 to |
| |511.75] respectively, otherwise|
| |the results are undefined. |
| | |
| |The packed cost table specifies|
| |the cost penalties for |
| |pre-defined control points in |
| |U4U4 format in the cost |
| |function curve. The first 7 |
| |bytes specify 7 control points |
| |representing consecutive |
| |powers-of-two delta units (2^0 |
| |to 2^6). Each delta unit, dx, |
| |is the distance of a motion |
| |vector, mv, from the specified |
| |cost center, cc |
| |(dx=|mv-cc|). The cost penalty |
| |values at in-between control |
| |points are linearly |
| |interpolated. The range of the |
| |cost function is defined to be |
| |from 2^0 to 2^6 delta |
| |units. The 8th byte of the |
| |packed cost table specifies the|
| |penalty base factor (over_cost)|
| |for dx distances that are |
| |out-of-range. The penalty of |
| |out-of-range cost dx distances |
| |is computed as min(over_cost + |
| |int(dx) - 64, 255). |
| | |
| |The value of the cost precision|
| |parameter must be a valid cost |
| |precision enumeration value, |
| |and specifies the precision of |
| |the delta units from the cost |
| |center, dx. This effectively |
| |can be used to control the |
| |range of the cost function as |
| |follows: |
| | |
| |PRECISION DELTAS PIXEL RANGE |
| |--------- ------ ----------- |
| | |
| |PEL pixel 0-64 |
| |DPEL dual 0-127 |
| | pixel |
| |HALF half 0-31 |
| | pixel |
| |QUARTER quarter 0-15 |
| | pixel |
| | |
| |The inter distortion for a |
| |block can be described by the |
| |following formula: |
| | |
| |Distortion = |
| | SAD (or HAAR) + |
| | MV_Cost_Penalty + |
| | Shape_Penalty + |
| | Direction_Cost + |
| | Multi_Reference_Penalty |
+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
Intra mode cost configuration phase functions
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These built-in functions enable mode costing for intra estimation.
They allow for the configuration of payloads to bias the computed
intra modes to be closer to their configured neighbor modes. This form
of costing is similar to the inter motion vector costing. Only the
built-in functions providing the defaults mode costs are specified as
MCE functions. The remaining functions which actually configure the
payload for the intra estimation operation is specified as SIC built-
in functions.

Result processing phase functions
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These built-in functions facilitate the extraction of components of
the result from VME unit.
+-----------------------------------+--------------------------------+
|ulong intel_sub_group_avc_mce_get_ |Get the MCE packed BMVs result. |
|motion_vectors( | |
| intel_sub_group_avc_mce_result_t|Up to 16 packed BMVs are |
| result ) |returned, one per work-item. If |
| |the MCE search operation's |
| |payload was setup for |
| |unidirectional search then only |
| |the forward packed MV will be |
| |valid in each BMV, otherwise |
| |both packed MVs will be |
| |valid. The BMVs have to be |
| |selected by their respective |
| |work-items based on the result |
| |block major and minor shapes. |
| | |
| |If the major shape is: |
| | - 16x16, then one BMV is |
| | returned by work-item 0 |
| | - 16x8, or 8x16, then two |
| | BMVs are returned by work- |
| | items 0 and 8 |
| | - 8x8, then four sets of BMVs|
| | corresponding to the four |
| | partitions in traditional |
| | Z-order are returned by |
| | work-items in the ranges |
| | [0, 3], [4, 7], [8, 11], |
| | and [12, 15]; the minor |
| | shape will determine |
| | exactly which work-items |
| | in the reserved inclusive |
| | range for the partition |
| | returns the BMVs for that |
| | partition |
| | |
| |If the range of work-items for |
| |the 8x8 major partition is [n, |
| |n+3] and the minor shape is: |
| | - 8x8, then work-item 'n' |
| | returns the BMV for each |
| | minor partition |
| | - 8x4 or 4x8, then work-items|
| | 'n' and 'n+2' returns the |
| | BMVs for each minor |
| | partition |
| | - 4x4, then all work-items in|
| | [n, n+3] return the BMVs |
| | for each minor partition |
| | in traditional Z-order |
| | |
| |NOTES: |
| | |
| |(1) All sub-block BMVs get |
| |replicated for each partition. |
| |For example, for a 16x16 |
| |partition, all smaller sub-block|
| |BMVs are replicated to the same |
| |BMV, and for 8x8 partition, each|
| |8x8 must have its respective |
| |sub-block BMVs replicated. This |
| |is not important to extract the |
| |component BMVs itself, but is |
| |needed if the result of this |
| |function is used to initialize |
| |the input motion vectors of a |
| |REF initialization function. |
| | |
| |(2) With interlaced images, the |
| |MBs for the top field MBs are |
| |considered as logically |
| |overlapping with the bottom MBs.|

+-----------------------------------+--------------------------------+
|uint intel_sub_group_avc_mce_get_ |Get the MCE inter MB reference |

| | |
| |NOTE: Unless HW assisted |

| | |
| |The blocks are numbered using |

| |NOTE: An important restriction |
| |is that when multiple IME |

| |HW multi-assisted |
| |multi-reference search operation|
| |using the streamin/streamout |
| |capabilities, the same reference|
| |image parameter cannot be used |
| |with different polarities in the|
| |sequence of IME operations used |
| |for a HW-assisted search |
| |operation. In other words, the |

IME built-in functions
----------------------
A set of ordered phases of functions are required to be called to
evaluate an integer motion estimation result.
Initialization phase functions
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These built-in functions create a properly initialized payload that
can be used for further configured for evaluating IME operations. This
is a required initial phase.
+---------------------------------+----------------------------------+
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_payload_t|Return an initialized payload for |
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_ |a VME integer search (IME) |
|initialize( |operation. |
| ushort2 src_coord, | |
| uchar partition_mask, |The payload is initialized for |
| uchar sad_adjustment ) |progressive frame operations, and |
| |the cost configuration values and |
| |the miscellaneous property values |
| |are all initialized to zero. The |
| |cost configuration and the |
| |miscellaneous property |
| |configuration phase functions must|
| |be used to override the initial |
| |configurations in the payload. |
| | |
| |The src_coord value represents the|
| |2D offset of the top left corner |
| |of the source MB in pixel units in|
| |the source image. Source MBs at |
| |the image borders are allowed to |
| |be partial, but the top-left |
| |corner must be within the image. |
| | |
| |If the source image is an |
| |interlaced scan image, then the |
| |bottom field lines are considered |
| |as logically overlapping with the |
| |top field lines (i.e. the top |
| |field MBs are considered as |
| |logically overlapping with the |
| |bottom MBs) for the purposes for |
| |specifying the src_coord value. |
| | |
| |The legal values for |
| |partition_mask can be composed by |
| |setting the appropriate bit fields|
| |specified by partition mask |
| |enumeration values using the '&' |
| |operator. |
| | |
| |The legal values for |
| |sad_adjustment is specified by its|
| |respective enumeration values. |
| | |
| |If the sad_adjustment is set to |
| |CLK_AVC_ME_SAD_ADJUST_MODE_HAAR_ |
| |INTEL, a simple wavelet transform,|
| |Haar transform, is used to refine |
| |the distortion measure of |
| |SAD. Haar transform here is used |
| |as a coarse estimation of the |
| |integer transform. |
+---------------------------------+----------------------------------+
Configuration phase functions
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These built-in functions allow for configuration of the search window.
A call to either intel_sub_group_avc_ime_set_single_reference(..) or
intel_sub_group_avc_ime_set_dual_reference(..) is required. This is a
required phase immediately following the initialization phase
+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_payload_t |Update the input payload for a |
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_set_ |VME single-reference search |

| short2 ref_offset, |reference window search region,|
| uchar search_window_config, |and return it. |
| intel_sub_group_avc_ime_payload_t| |
| payload ) |The 2D ref_offset specifies the|
| |reference window offset. The X |
| |and Y coordinates must be in |
| |the range [-2048, 2047], |
| |otherwise the results are |
| |undefined. The reference window|
| |is allowed to be partially |
| |outside the image. Pixel |
| |replication is applied to |
| |generate out-of-bound reference|
| |pixels. It is specified in PEL |
| |units. Results are undefined in|
| |the reference region is |
| |completely outside the image. |
| | |
| |If the reference image is an |
| |interlaced scan image, then the|
| |top field lines are considered |
| |as logically overlapping with |
| |the bottom field lines |
| |(i.e. the top field MBs are |
| |considered as logically |
| |overlapping with the bottom |
| |MBs) for the purposes for |
| |specifying the ref_offset |
| |value. |
| | |
| |The parameter |
| |search_window_config must be a |
| |compile-time constant. |
| | |
| |The value of |
| |search_window_config must be |
| |one of the unreserved search |
| |window configuration |
| |enumeration values. |
+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_payload_t |Update the input payload for a |
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_ |VME dual-reference search with |
|set_dual_reference( |the configurations for the |
| short2 fwd_ref_offset, |reference window search |
| short2 bwd_ref_offset, |regions, and return it. |
| uchar search_window_config, | |
| intel_sub_group_avc_ime_payload_t|The 2D |
| payload ) |fwd_ref_offset/bwd_ref_offset |
| |specifies the forward/backward |
| |reference window offsets. The X|
| |and Y coordinates must be in |
| |the range [-2048, 2047], |
| |otherwise the results are |
| |undefined. The reference |
| |windows are allowed to be |
| |partially outside the |
| |image. Pixel replication is |
| |applied to generate |
| |out-of-bound reference |
| |pixels. It is specified in PEL |
| |units. |
| | |
| |If a reference image is an |
| |interlaced scan image, then the|
| |top field lines are considered |
| |as logically overlapping with |
| |the bottom field lines |
| |(i.e. the top field MBs are |
| |considered as logically |
| |overlapping with the bottom |
| |MBs) for the purposes for |
| |specifying the corresponding |
| |fwd_ref_offset and/or |
| |bwd_ref_offset values. |
| | |
| |The parameter |
| |search_window_config must be a |
| |compile-time constant and must |
| |be one of the unreserved search|
| |window configuration |
| |enumeration values. |
+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
|ushort2 intel_sub_group_ime_ |Get the 2D size of the |
|ref_window_size( |reference window in pixel |
| uchar search_window_config, |units. |
| char dual_ref ) | |
| |The value of |
| |search_window_config must be |
| |one of the unreserved search |
| |window configuration |
| |enumeration values. |
| | |
| |The value of dual_ref must be |
| |set to zero for a single |
| |reference search window and one|
| |for a dual-reference search |
| |window. |
+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
|short2 |If the input 2D reference |
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_ |window offset, ref_offset, |
|adjust_ref_offset( |causes the reference window to |
| short2 ref_offset, |be fully out-of-bound of the |
| ushort2 src_coord, |reference image, adjust it such|
| ushort2 ref_window_size, |that the reference window is |
| ushort2 image_size ) |within bounds of the reference |
| |image. |
| | |
| |The 2D ref_offset specifies the|
| |reference window offset. The X |
| |and Y coordinates must be in |
| |the range [-2048, 2047], |
| |otherwise the results are |
| |undefined. |
| | |
| |The src_coord value represents |
| |the 2D offset of the top left |
| |corner of the source MB in |
| |pixel units in the source |
| |image. Source MBs at the image |
| |borders are allowed to be |
| |partial. Results are undefined |
| |if the source MB is completely |
| |outside the image. |
| | |
| |The ref_window_size specifies |
| |the 2D size of the reference |
| |window in pixel units. |
| | |
| |The image_size specifies the 2D|
| |size of the progressive scan, |
| |or top or bottom fields, of the|
| |interlaced scan image in pixel |
| |units. |
| | |
| |If the reference image is an |
| |interlaced scan image, then the|
| |bottom field lines are |
| |considered as logically |
| |overlapping with the top field |
| |lines the purposes for |
| |specifying the image_size |
| |value. Since, the actual layout|
| |of the top and bottom fields in|
| |the reference image is in an |
| |interleaved fashion, the height|
| |of the top or bottom fields |
| |should be exactly half of the |
| |actual reference image height. |
| | |
| |A call to |
| |intel_sub_group_avc_ime_ |
| |adjust_ref_coord(..) is |
| |optional. It is required only |
| |if the reference window offsets|
| |inputs to |

| |single_reference(..) or |
| |intel_sub_group_avc_ime_set_ |
| |dual_reference (..) is |
| |potentially out-of-bounds and |
| |need to be adjusted. |

+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_payload_t |Specify the maximum number of |
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_set_ |motion vectors allowed for the |
|max_motion_vector_count( |current MB. The default setting|
| uchar max_motion_vector_count, |is 32. Any other value may |
| intel_sub_group_avc_ime_payload_t|alter the MB partitioning |
| payload ) |decision. The IME operation |
| |will compute the best allowed |
| |partitioning such that the |
| |number of sub-block motion |
| |vectors will not exceed |
| |max_motion_vector_count. |
| | |
| |The value of max_motion_vector_|
| |count(..) specifies the maximum|
| |number of motion vectors |
| |allowed for the current MB. It |
| |must be in the range [1, 32], |
| |otherwise the results are |
| |undefined. |
| | |
| |NOTE: This can be used to |
| |handle the restriction for |
| |certain profiles for AVC in |
| |that the maximum number of |
| |motion vectors allowed for two |
| |consecutive MBs can only be 16.|

| intel_sub_group_avc_ime_payload_t| |
| payload ) |Default is to enable it. |
+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_payload_t |Specifies the threshold value |
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_set_early_ |of a distortion compute of a |
|search_termination_threshold( |16x16 partition of a MB for a |
| uchar threshold, |single-reference search, below |
| intel_sub_group_avc_ime_payload_t|which no more searching is |
| payload ) |performed for the MB. |
| | |
| |The value of threshold is |
| |specified in U4U4 format and |
| |the integer value must fit |
| |within 14 bits. |
| | |
| |The input payload must have |
| |been configured for a single- |
| |reference search with the 16x16|
| |partition enabled for this |
| |threshold to be set, or else |
| |the results are undefined. |
+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_payload_t |Set the (16) SAD weights for |
|intel_sub_group_avc_ime_set_ |each 4x4 sub-block. |
|weighted_sad( | |
| uint packed_sad_weights, |These values are used to |
| intel_sub_group_avc_ime_payload_t|decrease the SAD magnitude of |
| payload ) |each 4x4 sub-block by dividing |
| |the SAD of 4x4 sub-block of the|
| |source MB by its mapped weight.|
| | |
| |It requires a partition_mask of|
| |16x16 and forward search window|
| |configuration. |
| | |
| |The weighting pattern used is |
| |the traditional Z order for |
| |each 4x4 block. Weighted-SAD |
| |Control Mapping: |
| | |
| | 0 1 4 5 |
| | 2 3 6 7 |
| | 8 9 C D |
| | A B E F |
| | |
| |Each weight is of 2 bits |
| |represented in a packed format |
| |in packed_sad_weights for each |
| |of the 4x4 blocks in Z order. |
| | |
| |A prior call to |
| |intel_sub_group_avc_ime_ |
| |set_single_reference(..) set up|
| |for the forward reference image|
| |is required. |
| | |
| |This feature is mainly intended|
| |for improved block matching in |
| |image-rate conversion (FRC) |
| |kernels. |

SIC built-in functions
----------------------
A set of ordered phases of functions are required to be called to
evaluate a skip check or intra estimation operation result.
Initialization phase functions
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These built-in functions create a properly initialized payload that
can be used for further configured for evaluating SIC operations. This
is a required initial phase.
+-----------------------------------+--------------------------------+
|intel_sub_group_avc_sic_payload_t |Return an initialized payload |
|intel_sub_group_avc_sic_initialize(|for a VME SIC operation. |
| ushort2 src_coord ) | |
| | |
| |If the source image is an |
| |interlaced scan image, then the |
| |bottom field lines are |
| |considered as logically |
| |overlapping with the top field |
| |lines (i.e. the top field MBs |
| |are considered as logically |
| |overlapping with the bottom MBs)|
| |for the purposes for specifying |
| |the src_coord value. |
| | |
| |If the SIC operation is being |
| |configured for chroma based |
| |intra estimation, then the x and|
| |y coordinates of src_coord must |
| |be multiples of 2. |
+-----------------------------------+--------------------------------+
Configuration phase functions
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These built-in functions allow for configuration of a skip check
and/or intra estimation operation. This is a required phase following
the initialization phase to configure the skip check or intra
estimation operation. A call to intel_sub_group_avc_sic_configure_
skc(..) or intel_sub_group_avc_sic_configure_ipe(..) is required. Both
intel_sub_group_avc_sic_configure_skc(..) and intel_sub_group_avc_
sic_configure_ipe(..) may be called to initialize the payload to
perform both skip checks and intra estimation as part for the same SIC
evaluation, but if called together intel_sub_group_avc_sic_configure_
skc(..) must be called first in the call sequence.
+------------------------------------+-------------------------------+
|intel_sub_group_avc_sic_payload_t |Configure the SIC payload for |

| |Legal values for |

| |from the enumeration values |
| |defined for it; both |
| |unidirectional and |
| |bidirectional skip vectors can |
| |be specified uniquely for each |
| |major partition (16x16 or 8x8) |
| |by an appropriate selection of |
| |the skip motion vector mask |
| |enumeration values. If the |
| |16x16 skip_block_partition_type|
| |is specified, then only the |
| |16x16 enumeration values may be|
| |used, else only the 8x8 |
| |enumeration values may be used.|
