Streaming Network Visual TriCom
Visual TriCom (TriMedia Component Object Model)
TriCom is a graphical tool and environment for rapid
application development for PNX 1700/1500 VLIW media
TriMedia Streaming Architecture (TSSA) from NXP is a
framework to facilitate connection of different software
components for building TriMedia applications. However, it
still requires a learning curve and difficult to debug.
Streaming Networks TriCom tool is an attempt to make this
TriCom provides a graphical environment to connect software
components for rapid application development.
Once compatible components are connected, code is
automatically generated, linked and loaded on the target
Concept similar to graphedit in DirectShow and simulink in
TriCom and associated build environment acts as a TSSA
expert system, it not only eliminates the chance of a syntax
error, it also does intelligent memory allocations and
It provides visual feedback of load distribution among
components and other run time information required to debug
real time multi-media applications.
