In this paper, we propose the novel concept of probabilistic design for multimedia systems and a methodology to quickly explore such design space at an early design stage. The probabilistic design is motivated by the challenge of how to design, but not over-design, multimedia embedded systems while systematically incorporating such application’s performance requirements, uncertainties in execution time, and tolerance for reasonable execution failures. Our goal is to bridge the gap between real-time analysis and embedded software implementation for rapid and economic (multimedia) system prototyping. Our method takes advantage of multimedia system’s unique features mentioned above to relax the rigid hardware requirements for software implementation and eventually avoid over-designing the system.
