Overview of the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) Standard
The main goal of the HEVC standardization effort is to enable significantly improved compression performance relative to existing standards-in the range of 50% bit-rate reduction for equal perceptual video quality.
Overview of the H.264/AVC video coding standard
An overview of the technical features of H.264/AVC is provided, profiles and applications for the standard are described, and the history of the standardization process is outlined.
Rate-distortion optimization for video compression
The rate-distortion efficiency of video compression schemes is based on a sophisticated interaction between various motion representation possibilities, waveform coding of differences, and waveform
Comparison of the Coding Efficiency of Video Coding Standards—Including High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC)
The results of subjective tests for WVGA and HD sequences indicate that HEVC encoders can achieve equivalent subjective reproduction quality as encoder that conform to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC when using approximately 50% less bit rate on average.
Rate-constrained coder control and comparison of video coding standards
A unified approach to the coder control of video coding standards such as MPEG-2, H.263, MPEG-4, and the draft video coding standard H.264/AVC (advanced video coding) is presented. The performance of
Overview of the Stereo and Multiview Video Coding Extensions of the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Standard
An overview of the algorithmic design used for extending H.264/MPEG-4 AVC towards MVC is provided and a summary of the coding performance achieved by MVC for both stereo- and multiview video is provided.
Overlapped block motion compensation: an estimation-theoretic approach
This analysis establishes for the first time how (and why) OBMC can offer substantial reductions in prediction error as well, even with no change in the encoder's search and no extra side information.
The H.264/MPEG4 advanced video coding standard and its applications
The technology behind the new H.264/MPEG4-AVC standard is discussed, focusing on the main distinct features of its core coding technology and its first set of extensions, known as the fidelity range extensions (FRExt).
The H.264/AVC Advanced Video Coding standard: overview and introduction to the fidelity range extensions
An overview of this standard is provided, including the highlights of the capabilities of the new FRExt features, and some comparisons with the existing MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 Part 2 standards are provided.
Video Compression - From Concepts to the H.264/AVC Standard
This paper starts with an explanation of the basic concepts of video codec design and then explains how various features have been integrated into international standards, up to and including the most recent such standard, known as H.264/AVC.
