EVENT-LEVEL PARALLEL METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR XML PARSING

Pub Date: 2011-06-23

Pub Number: US20110153604

Embodiments of techniques and systems for parallel XML parsing are described. An event-level XML parser may include a lightweight events partitioning stage, parallel events parsing stages, and a post-processing stage. The events partition may pick out event boundaries using single-instruction, multiple-data instructions to find occurrences of the character, marking event boundaries. Subsequent checking may be performed to help identify other event boundaries, as well as non-boundary instances of the character. During events parsing, unresolved items, such as namespace resolution or matching of start and end elements, may be recorded in structure metadata. This structure metadata may be used during the subsequent post-processing to perform a check of the XML data. If the XML data is well-formed, individual sub-event streams formed by the events parsing processes may be assembled into a flat result event stream structure. Other embodiments may be described and claimed.

Pub Date: 2011-06-23

Pub Number: US20110150354

An original image is up-sampled to a final image by constructing at least two sub-banded filtered images of the original image with 2D wavelet-based decomposition filters, each filtered image being of the same resolution as the original image. Each sub-banded filtered image is then mapped into a larger filtered image of the same size as the final image. Pixels in each larger filtered image which were not mapped in from the sub-banded filtered images are interpolated or left blank. The larger filtered images are then filtered with 2D reconstruction filters and combined to form the final up-sampled image. The invention has the advantage that high quality up-sampled images can be created in real time suitable for high definition video.
