Development of the MediaStation 5000 Multimedia System and its MPEG-Audio Codec
This thesis describes the design of MediaStation 5000, a fully programmable multimedia system. The system, which utilizes a single multimedia video processor (MVP), is capable of performing real-time MPEG audio and video encoding at SIF resolution, 30 frames per second. Support is provided for a windows environment, including a scalable video window for viewing decoded video sequences or monitoring video compression in real time. The system is also well suited to perform image processing, 2-D and 3-D graphics, and many other video and audio processing and compression algorithms. An MPEG-Audio codec is also presented as a sample application for MediaStation 5000.
