  author={Tom R. Jacobs and Vassilios A. Chouliaras and David J. Mulvaney},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics},
This study utilizes thread-level parallel techniques to significantly reduce the dynamic instruction count performance metric of the MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and H.264 video encoders. Such solutions are particularly applicable in portable devices as workload distribution among a number of parallel-executing processors decreases the individual processing requirements and allows for the real time video encoding. Due to the use of multiple processing engines in a consumer SoC the required clock frequency… CONTINUE READING
