PM2V is a project developed
by students of the Ecole
Nationale Supérieure d'Electronique et de Radioelectronique
ENSERB is a high national school of engineering based in Bordeaux
(France). It has three departments: Computer Science, Electronics
PM2V is a library for
parallel encoding a video sequence in MPEG II. PM2V is mainly based
on mpeg2encode v1.2a, it aims to speed up the computing of video
sequence by using multiple processors.
PM2V can use both SMP
architectures or workstations network. The scalability is good for
a reduced number of processors: typically up to eight.
Performances for a workstations network are essentially limited
by the bandwith (100 Mbit/s or higher is recommended).
It is important to note
that PM2V is currently in development and is not fully functionnal.
