There is no UMC transcoder sample but you can create your own transcoder using UMC components. UMC has enough components for it.

The speed of your transcoding depends on lot of factors including input format, output format, video resolution, input bit rate, output bit rate, etc, and of course your system.
For example, if you want to transcode from MPEG2 to h.264, decoding mpeg2 should be relatively easy, but encoding h.264 is very slow for HD, far from real-time as I tested.

That'sright for software codecs performance, but I would recommend you also check Intel Media SDK product which provide hardware assistant media codec implementation. From what I know the transcoding to H.264 is really good on Sandy Bridge systems (it is second generation of Intel Core architecture)
