Abstract

3D video based on multi-view representations is becoming widely popular. Real-time encoding/decoding of such video is an important concern as the number and resolution of views increase. We present systematic methods for design and optimization of real-time multi-view video encoding/decoding algorithms using multi-core processors and provide benchmark results. The proposed multi-core decoding architectures are fully compliant with the current JVT-MVC international standard, and enable multi-threaded processing with negligible loss of encoding efficiency. Benchmark results show that multi-core processors and multi-threading decoding is necessary for real-time multi-view video decoding and display.
