—With the introduction of the H.264/AVC video coding standard, significant improvements have recently been demonstrated in video compression capability. The Joint Video Team of the ITU-T VCEG and the ISO/IEC MPEG has now also standardized a Scalable Video Coding (SVC) extension of the H.264/AVC standard. SVC enables the transmission and decoding of partial(More)
—Context-Based Adaptive Binary Arithmetic Coding (CABAC) as a normative part of the new ITU-T/ISO/IEC standard H.264/AVC for video compression is presented. By combining an adaptive binary arithmetic coding technique with context mod-eling, a high degree of adaptation and redundancy reduction is achieved. The CABAC framework also includes a novel(More)
H.264/AVC, the result of the collaboration between the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group and the ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group, is the latest standard for video coding. The goals of this standardization effort were enhanced compression efficiency , network friendly video representation for interactive (video telephony) and non-interactive applications(More)
The scalable extension of H.264/MPEG4-AVC is a current standardization project of the joint video team of the ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group and the ISO/IEC moving picture experts group. This paper gives an overview of the design of the scalable H.264/MPEG4-AVC extension and describes the basic concepts for supporting temporal, spatial, and SNR(More)
This paper describes an extension of the high efficiency video coding (HEVC) standard for coding of multi-view video and depth data. In addition to the known concept of disparity-compensated prediction, inter-view motion parameter, and inter-view residual prediction for coding of the dependent video views are developed and integrated. Furthermore, for depth(More)
marks a new step in video compression capability. In technical terms, HEVC is a hybrid video-coding approach using quadtree-based block partitioning together with motion-compensated prediction. Even though a high degree of adaptability is achieved by quadtree-based block partitioning, this approach has certain intrinsic drawbacks, which may result in(More)
The scalability extension of H.264/AVC uses a layered MCTF approach for providing spatial, temporal, and SNR scalability. The underlying MCTF decomposition scheme generally results in a large structural encoding−decoding delay, which prevents the use in low−delay applications. In this paper we present a new strategy for restricting the MCTF decomposition in(More)
The ongoing standardization activity in DVB on IP−based video and audio streaming services over DVB−H networks currently specifies three terminal classes ranging from QCIF, 15 Hz, and max. 128 kbit/s to CIF, 30 Hz, and max. 768 kbit/s. The reason for specifying these is to offer ser−vices to different terminal classes with different processing and battery(More)
A new entropy coding scheme for video compression is presented. Context models are utilized for efficient prediction of the coding symbols. A novel binary adaptive arithmetic coding technique is employed to match the conditional entropy of the coding symbols given the context model estimates. The adaptation is also employed to keep track of non-stationary(More)
