Video Compression : MPEG-4 and Beyond

  title={Video Compression : MPEG-4 and Beyond},
  author={Ali Saman Tosun},
Technological developments in the networking technology and the computers make use of video possible. Storing and transmitting uncompressed raw video is not a good idea, it requires large storage space and bandwidth. Special algorithms which take the characteristics of the video into account can compress the video with high compression ratio. In this paper I will give a overview of the standardization efforts on video compression: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MPEG-7, and I will explain the current…

An application specific low bit-rate video compression system geared towards vehicle tracking.
Following an investigation in the field of video compression, existing techniques have been adapted and integrated into an application specific low bit-rate video compression system, designed to track vehicles of reasonable size within an otherwise static scene.
Video over IP : an example reconfigurable computing application for a handheld device
This project demonstrates an example video over IP application using a Compaq IPaq along with a field programmable gate array used for data processing, thus avoiding unnecessary delay and computation requirements imposed on the CPU by regular video overIP communication software.
Enhancing selective encryption for H.264/AVC using advanced encryption standard
The experimental results show that the proposed enhanced selective video encryption scheme for H.264/AVC based on Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) provides adequate security to video streams and provides a good trade-off between encryption robustness, flexibility, and real-time processing.


MPEG: a video compression standard for multimedia applications
Design of the MPEG algorithm presents a difficult challenge since quality requirements demand high compression that cannot be achieved with only intraframe coding, and the algorithm’s random access requirement is best satisfied with pure intraframes coding.
