Intel Joule - How do i get extensive Documentation on the Joule's Media Framework?


Hi all,

I have gathered that Intel Joule Provides an IPU which provides a variety of Image Processing Features, as described in IoT link.

But, I would like to gather more practical information on how to make use of these features.

As far as I studied, I know the following features are supported:

  • 3-D rendering
  • media composting
  • video decoding / encoding methods:
    • AVC (H.264)
    • HEVC (H.265)
    • VP8 and VP9
  • DirectX* (9.3, 10, 11.3, 12)
  • OpenGL# 4.3 and OGL ES 3.1
  • OpenCL* 2.0
  • 4x anti-aliasing
  • content protection using PAVP 2.0

Is there any more documentation on the exhaustive list of features supported by the Media Framework?

Can u Please provide me with the Technical Reference Manual (TRM) for the Intel Joule Processor, or the IPU?

I did some digging and found the list of media devices enlisted by the media-ctl -p command. which i have attached as Media-Ctl.txt

Thanks in advance.intel_admin

Regarding the Technical Reference Manual for the Intel Joule Processor, I'd like to investigate a little bit more and I'll come back to you as soon as I have useful information.

Hi Kanna,



Thank you for your patience and continued interest in the compute module. All publicly available information is published within the online documentation. Developers are advised to perform media functions via the (open source) GStreamer service.


Additional information for the GStreamer service can be found at the following location:
