WebM to get hardware acceleration

Posted on Friday, January 14 2011 @ 04:00:01 CET by

The Tech Report writes the WebM developers have licensed decoder technology to 20 partners. The plan is to get hardware acceleration out on the market as soon as possible:
High-definition Flash can bog down more powerful systems than one might expect, and Adobe took its sweet time implementing hardware acceleration. The folks behind the open and relatively new WebM video format are being a little more aggressive. As Engadget notes, the WebM dev team is already offering graphics chip makers everything they need to implement a hardware decoder for the format's VP8 video codec.

According to WebM, 20 partners have licensed the decoder tech. Chinese semiconductor firm Rocketchip even has a hardware implementation ready. And there's more goodness to come. The WebM team is planning to release a hardware design for a VP8 encoder in the first quarter of this year.
