H.264 is the ITU-T’s new, nonbackward compatible video compression Recommendation that significantly outperforms all previous video compression standards. It consists of a video coding layer (VCL) which performs all the classic signal processing tasks and generates bit strings containing coded macroblocks, and a network adaptation layer (NAL) which adapts(More)
In this paper we review error resilience techniques for real-time video transport over unreliable networks. Topics covered include an introduction to today's protocol and network environments and their characteristics, encoder error resilience tools, decoder error concealment techniques, as well as techniques that require cooperation between encoder,(More)
We propose a method that extracts sparse and spatially localized deformation modes from an animated mesh sequence. To this end, we propose a new way to extend the theory of sparse matrix decompositions to 3D mesh sequence processing, and further contribute with an automatic way to ensure spatial locality of the decomposition in a new optimization framework.(More)
This paper describes the integration of High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) into end-to-end multimedia systems, formats, and protocols such as Real-time transport Protocol, the transport stream of the MPEG-2 standard suite, and dynamic adaptive streaming over the Hypertext Transport Protocol. This paper gives a brief overview of the high-level syntax of(More)
Transmission of hybrid coded video including motion compensation and spatial prediction over error-prone channels results in the well-known problem of spatio-temporal error propagation at the decoder. A widely accepted standard-compliant technique to enhance the quality of the decoded video significantly is the more frequent introduction of intra-coded(More)
The transport of scalable media, and in particular of scalable video conforming to the forthcoming Scalable Video Coding (SVC) technology, presents challenges not only in the video compression technology, but also in transport and signaling. This paper discusses the current status of standardization of the support for scalable media, and SVC in particular,(More)
The increasing proportion of video traffic in telecommunication networks puts an emphasis on efficient video compression technology. High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is the forthcoming video coding standard that provides substantial bit rate reductions compared to its predecessors. In the HEVC standardization process, technologies such as picture(More)
This paper describes standard compliant enhancements of the currently developed JVT coding algorithms for transmission over fixed and wireless IP-based networks. This includes a description of JVT coding algorithm and the adaptation to IP-based networks. The error resilience features within the JVT coding algorithm are presented in greater detail.
