[ANN] GstOpenMAX kicked off

GstOpenMAX kicked off!

GstOpenMAX [1] is a collaboration among Fluendo [2], Nokia [3],
STMicroelectronics [4], TI [5] and the open-source community, initiated
by Nokia with the goal to develop a GStreamer [6] plug-in to run OpenMAX
IL [7] components in GNOME [8] and GStreamer applications.

The new project aims to merge efforts from Bellagio project [9] and GOmx
project [10] 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
