VVdeC<>Arm: Optimizing an open source VVC decoder for Arm architectures

VVdeC is an open source VVC decoder optimized for the x86 SIMD extensions SSE4.1 and AVX2. Support for other architectures has been achieved using the open source project SIMD Everywhere. This talk will present the approach and results of the first attempt of optimizing VVdeC for Arm, including which SIMD extension was selected as the optimization target, which tools where used and how SIMD was utilized.
