Toshiba presents Cell processor simultaneously decoding 48 MPEG-2 streams

Posted on Monday, May 02 2005 @ 18:56:39 CEST by

Toshiba recently demonstrated the Cell processor which was jointly developed with Sony and IBM. During the presentation the company showed the Cell processor simultaneously decoding 48 SDTV format MPEG-2 streams.
In the film, 48 MPEG-2 streams stored on a HDD were read, decoded and projected onto a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution display divided into 8 x 6 cells, each of which showed a different video in each cell. The company expects the technology to be used to display thumbnails for a video list. Of the eight synergistic processor elements (SPE) used in the Cell, six are used for decoding 48 MPEG-2 streams and one is used for scaling the screen. The remaining SPE can be used for a completely different processing function.
