ARM has made the source code for its sample implementation of OpenMAX DL (Development Layer) audio and video codec software library freely available for download from the company’s website. ARM’s sample OpenMAX DL software library provides source code written in C for easy platform portability and code readability.
OpenMAX is a royalty-free, cross-platform API developed by the Khronos Group that provides a comprehensive media codec and application portability by enabling accelerated multimedia components to be developed, integrated and programmed across multiple operating systems and silicon platforms.

ARM said it plans to create a series of libraries including an implementation that will take full advantage of the ARMv6 architecture found in the ARM11 family and an implementation for the NEON signal processing technology found in the Cortex-A8 processor.
