The MPEG-4 standard has already been established, well accepted and is being widely used by content creators, developers, manufacturers, providers of services and end users. Industry leaders have come together to guarantee interoperability. Amongst the video standards, the MPEG-4 video Advanced Simple Profile (ASP) has found wide acceptance and the need for real-time low cost MPEG-4 video ASP encoding solutions isappropriate for certain markets. Embedded multimedia systems, such as programmable VLIW-based chips offer flexibility and functionality, and are very suitable platforms for deployment of real-time multimedia applications. The Equator BSP-15 is one such single chip platform. Enabling technologies for such embedded multimedia systems require very careful and often creative considerations of cost versus performance. To this end, we have designed and developed a real-time MPEG-4 video ASP encoder at Level 5 on an Equator BSP-15 chip. This paper describes our experiences with the design considerations and some implementation issues along with some proposed solutions. The experimental results show the feasibility of these solutions to obtain very good performance on low-cost embedded systems.
