    VCN is a hardware block. The encode and decode capabilities exposed by this hardware block are exposed today via multimedia APIs like OpenMAX, VA-API, and VDPAU. The vulkan extensions expose the video hardware engines like VCN through the Vulkan API similar to how we expose the compute and gfx hardware engines via the Vulkan API today.
    Thanks for this explanation. I see that this would leverage the cross-plattform and cross-vendor advantages of Vulkan to video encode/decode and should supersede the usage of OpenMAX, VA-API and VDPAU on Linux?!

      Well, it would provide another API for video acceleration. So you could use OpenMAX or VAAPI or VDPAU or Vulkan.
