Can simultaneous encoding/decoding of a video codec be performed?

Latest Updated:05/09/2016

Question:

Can simultaneous encoding/decoding of a video codec be performed?

Answer:

Video codec encoding and decoding use the same hardware resources, so they need to toggle with time sharing. However, if viewed as a system, if processing of encoding and decoding is completed within a certain time, it can be said that the system has operated both simultaneously. Simultaneous operation is restricted by the maximum throughput of hardware resources and memory bandwidth.
