Video 2000 is a classic internet-enabled video stream pipeline benchmark. Project has been abandoned.
This is useful in establishing quality and performance numbers for applications such as DVD playback, video editing, and NetMeeting. The Video pipeline in each PC is different, and it's ability to produce high-quality output in all image-sizes and sources varies. Some solutions even accelerate the decoding of DVD and MPEG-2 video streams resulting in excellent performance. The video performance on your computer desktop is affected by your graphics card, CPU ability, memory, and motherboard.
Until the introduction of Video2000, it had been virtually impossible to measure any of this technology accurately without the use of expensive add-on analyzing equipment.
