Image Processing using OpenMAX AL

A simple Q just to make sure that I get the whole OpenMAX AL right:
Can I use OpanMAX AL to retrieve image data from the camera, use this data to do some Image Processing stuff (e.g tracking, segmentation, template recognition etc)?


NVIDIA posts open-source samples that use OMX-AL to do many of the things you are asking about. The code is in the Tegra Android Development Pack.

Look here: … pment-pack
Then here:

Make sure you download the “Development Pack”, there are different packages there.

The pack contains a lot of stuff, including a set of Eclipse packages with the source code. Look for example at the augmented reality sample application, which uses the camera. The code is in C/C++, so you’ll need to poke around, and go down into the correct ‘jni’ directory. Even if you don’t compile and run the code on a Tegra development board, you can see the source code samples and their usage of OMX-AL.
