GstOpenMAX kicked off!
GstOpenMAX  is a collaboration among Fluendo , Nokia ,
STMicroelectronics , TI  and the open-source community, initiated
by Nokia with the goal to develop a GStreamer  plug-in to run OpenMAX
IL  components in GNOME  and GStreamer applications.
The new project aims to merge efforts from Bellagio project  and GOmx
project  into one solid OpenMAS IL plug-in for GStreamer.
OpenMAX IL is an industry standard that provides abstractions for
multimedia processing implemented in hardware or software.
Especially in embedded systems, there has been a strong need for a
cross-platform API that improves the integration of multiple
hardware-accelerated multimedia components, e.g. codecs, effects and
The GstOpenMAX plug-in enables GNOME and GStreamer applications to
seamlessly use OpenMAX IL components. In addition, the project also
provides the community with the possibility to develop cross-platform
codecs, that would automatically be supported by GStreamer multimedia
