H.264/MPEG-4 AVC is the latest international video coding standard. It was jointly developed by the Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) of the ITU-T and the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) of ISO/IEC. It uses state-of-the-art coding tools and provides enhanced coding efficiency for a wide range of applications, including video telephony, video conferencing, TV, storage (DVD and/or hard disk based, especially high-definition DVD), streaming video, digital video authoring, digital cinema, and… 

The H.264/MPEG4 advanced video coding standard and its applications

TLDR
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).

TLDR
The three variant and simulation of H.264 video codec: one original encoder, second encoder provide lower memory requirement with high encoding time and third provide lower encoding time with high memory requirement are described.

TLDR
An elementary, general account of the SVC project, which aims to develop a fully scalable video codec based on the AVC codec as its backbone, which seems unavailable in the literature.

Hardware study on the H.264/AVC video stream parser

TLDR
Overall, the ASIC implementations showed higher performance and lower area than the FPGA, with a 60% increase in performance and 6x decrease in area, and the results show the presented design to be a low power architecture, when compared to other research.

Efficient Video Coding Beyond High-Definition Resolution

TLDR
Three algorithms associated with the loop-filters have been developed and evaluated and results show that deblocking and adaptive Loop filter may be run in parallel, a gain could be achieved by using more input to ALF and fixed filters may considerably reduce complexity of ALF.

Adaptive Entropy Coder Design Based on the Statistics of Lossless Video Signal

TLDR
New intra prediction methods, referred to as sample-wise differential pulse-code modulation (DPCM) (JVT of ITU-T and ISO/IEC, 2005; Lee et al., 2006) were introduced for lossless coding and have been shown to provide better compression performance.

Performance Analysis of Advanced Video Coding (H.264)

TLDR
This paper provides performance analysis of the ITU-T H.264 standard, presenting PSNR, MSE values to get better insight about the H. 264 applications in industries and day to day life.

Performance comparison of JPEG2000 and H.264/AVC high profile intra-frame coding on HD video sequences

TLDR
The experimental results show that H.264/AVC I-frame coding offers consistent R-D performance gains over JPEG2000 color image coding, and this work is a follow-on to the paper at SPIE 05, wherein it further optimize both codecs.
