This paper analyzes parallel scalability and coding speed of our open-source Kvazaar HEVC intra encoder on Intel Xeon Phi 61-core coprocessor that supports up to four hardware threads per core. The evaluated parallelization schemes of Kvazaar are 1) Wavefront Parallel Processing (WPP); and 2) tiles, both accelerated with picture-level parallel processing.(More)
This paper presents efficient SIMD optimizations for the open-source Kvazaar HEVC intra encoder. The C implementation of Kvazaar is accelerated by Intel AVX2 instructions whose effect on Kvazaar ultrafast preset is profiled. According to our profiling results, C functions of SATD, DCT, quantization, and intra prediction account for over 60% of the total(More)
Kvazaar is an academic software video encoder for the emerging High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC/H.265) standard. It provides students, academic professionals, and industry experts a free, cross-platform HEVC encoder for x86, x64, PowerPC, and ARM processors on Windows, Linux, and Mac. Kvazaar is being developed from scratch in C and optimized in Assembly(More)
