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 modeling, 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)
H.264/MPEG4-AVC is the latest video coding standard of the ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) and the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). H.264/MPEG4AVC has recently become the most widely accepted video coding standard since the deployment of MPEG2 at the dawn of digital television, and it may soon overtake MPEG2 in common use. It covers all(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)
The joint development of the upcoming High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard by ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group and ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group marks a new step in video compression capability. In technical terms, HEVC is a hybrid video-coding approach using quadtreebased block partitioning together with motion-compensated prediction. Even(More)
A new entropy coding scheme for video compression is presented. Context models are utilized for efJicient 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)
Scalable video coding (SVC) is an extension of H.264/AVC, which is currently being developed by the Joint Video Team. SVC supports any combination of temporal, spatial, and SNR scalability, but there is no special treatment for the case that two or more different bit-depths have to be supported by the scalable bit-stream. There is a number of applications(More)
