||Thanks to the push from an ever increasing desire for more realistic renderings of blood and explosions when
entertaining our children, the processing power of the Graphics Processing Units (GPU) greatly exceeds the computing
power of the main processor (CPU) of a modern PC. With the increasing programmability of GPUs, these chips are capable
of performing more than the specific graphics computations for which they were designed. Thus General-Purpose
computation on GPUs (GPGPU) has emerged as the buzzword of the year, promising near super computing performance on
commodity hardware. Today, I will show how the power of the GPU can be used for performing real time video
analysis, facilitating an enhanced visual experience when watching sport on TV.
