NVIDIA Releases Open-Source Image Scaling SDK 1.0.2
Shortly after the November announced NVIDIA published their v1.0 release on GitHub for this MIT-licensed SDK. Today marks NVIDIA Image Scaling SDK 1.0.2 becoming available.
NVIDIA sums up this SDK as, "The NVIDIA Image Scaling SDK provides a single spatial scaling and sharpening algorithm for cross-platform support. The scaling algorithm uses a 6-tap scaling filter combined with 4 directional scaling and adaptive sharpening filters, which creates nice smooth images and sharp edges. In addition, the SDK provides a state-of-the-art adaptive directional sharpening algorithm for use in applications where no scaling is required."
The NVIDIA Image Scaling SDK 1.0.2 release brings multiple performance optimizations, including increased detection ratio by a factor of two and various other improvements. NVIDIA Image Scaling 1.0.2 also fixes host and compute shader compiler warnings and adjusts the sharpness minimum value and normalization defaults.
