H.264/AVC (advanced video codec) is a new video coding standard developed by a joint effort of the ITU-TVCEG and ISO/IEC MPEG. This standard provides higher coding efficiency relative to former standards at the expense of higher computational requirements. Implementing the H.264 video encoder for an embedded system-on-chip (SoC) is a big challenge. For an efficient implementation, we motivate the use of multiprocessor platforms for the execution of a parallel model of the encoder. In this paper, we propose a high-level independent target-architecture parallelization methodology for the development of an optimized parallel model of a H.264/AVC encoder (i.e. a processes network model balanced in communication and computation workload).
