The Khronos Group announced the release this Monday morning of the OpenVX 1.1 specification for computer vision acceleration.

Using this week's Embedded Vision Summit as the launching platform, OpenVX 1.1 has been published for "high performance, low power computer vision acceleration." Among the additions with OpenVX 1.1 are:
- Definition and processing of Laplacian pyramids to support computational photography use cases;
- Median, erode and dilate image filters, including custom patterns;
- Easier and less error prone methods to read and write data to and from OpenVX objects;
- Targets - to control on which accelerator to run nodes in a heterogeneous device;
- More convenient and flexible API for extending OpenVX with user kernels;
- Many other improvements and clarifications to infrastructure functions and vision nodes.
