A number of advanced applications of digital video technology exist which require pixels to be represented with a resolution higher than the 8 bits that is used in most existing video coding standards. These applications include the video generated by many modern thermal imaging systems used in surveillance applications, which has a dynamic range of 12 bits. In this paper, we describe the modi"cations required to extend existing video coding standards to support surveillance applications… CONTINUE READING
