Image-based rendering (IBR) is a technique to render the video from images, and it provides users to have more interaction and immersive experience in watching a video. In this paper, we integrate the computation of several IBR applications, analyze the bandwidth of memory access, and design an architecture to process the computation of IBR. Experimental results show that the proposed IBR Engine is able to render a video with resolution 720×480 and 30 frames per second, which is 12.7 times faster than a Core2Due 2.83 GHz CPU. For the extensions, IBR Engine can be embedded in the television system and lets viewers enjoy the functions from IBR.
