Reed Solomon Error Correcting Codes are used on DVD discs to detect and
correct errors ( RS(182,172,11) and RS(208,192,17). I am working on a
software implementation of the Reed Solomon codes. However the speed of the
polynomial calculations is way too slow. For CD I have a matrix based
calculation of the Reed Solomon Codes (RS(26,24,2) and.RS(45,43,2))

What I am looking for is help to create a matrix based algorithm for the DVD
Reed Solomon Codes. Any help is greatly appreciated.
