In this paper we propose and evaluate a parallelization strategy for the emerging HEVC video coding standard. The proposed strategy is based on entropy slices which allows exploiting parallelism in the entropy decoding stage while maintaining high coding efficiency. Our approach requires to encode videos with one entropy slice per LCU row in order to decode multiple LCU rows in a wavefront parallel manner. Evaluations performed on a PC with 12 Intel Xeon cores running at 3.3 GHz show that it is… CONTINUE READING
