With a lot of enhanced coding tools introduced, High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) achieves significant improvement in coding efficiency at the cost of increased computational complexity. To efficiently reduce the encoding time of HEVC, a wavefront-based high parallel (WHP) solution integrating novel data-level and task-level methods is proposed in this paper. On data level, optimal single-instruction-multiple-data algorithms are designed for the enhanced coding tools, i.e., replacing the… CONTINUE READING
