As portable devices prevail and network infrastructures become sophisticated, processing of multimedia data, such as image and audio, gets more and more divergent and complicated. In this paper, the authors propose a scalable and transparent parallelization scheme using threads for multi-core processor. The performance achieved by their scheme is scalable to the number of cores, and the application program is not affected by the actual number of cores. For the performance efficiency, they designed the threads so that they do not suspend and that they do not start their execution until the data necessary for them are available.
