Parallel Implementation of Multi-View Video Decoder for Reduction in Power Consumption

Provided by: International Journal of Computer Applications Topic: Software Date Added: Nov 2012 Format: PDF
Mobile platform based multi view video applications have gained significant attention due to increase in processing power of mobile processors. Significant performance improvements have been reported by using H.264/AVC based video encoding-decoding procedures. Multi-View Coding (MVC) is an extension of H.264/AVC scheme employed for high performance compression of multi view videos. The increase in spatial/temporal information has increased the difficulties in real-time decoding. In existing implementations, multi-processor based architectures have been employed to achieve real-time processing in H.264/AVC. In this paper, a parallel MVC decoding scheme is presented. The implementation is based on pipelined architecture of Cortex-A8 processor and Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). The decoding procedure is divided into block based and pixel based operations.
