High efficiency video coding
|Publication Date:||1 February 2018|
This Recommendation | International Standard specifies high efficiency video coding.
This Recommendation | International Standard was developed in response to the growing need for higher compression of moving pictures for various applications such as videoconferencing, digital storage media, television broadcasting, internet streaming, and communications. It is also designed to enable the use of the coded video representation in a flexible manner for a wide variety of network environments as well as to enable the use of multi-core parallel encoding and decoding devices. The use of this Recommendation | International Standard allows motion video to be manipulated as a form of computer data and to be stored on various storage media, transmitted and received over existing and future networks and distributed on existing and future broadcasting channels. Supports for higher bit depths and enhanced chroma formats, including the use of full-resolution chroma are provided. Support for scalability enables video transmission on networks with varying transmission conditions and other scenarios involving multiple bit rate services. Support for multiview enables representation of video content with multiple camera views and optional auxiliary information. Support for 3D enables joint representation of video content and depth information with multiple camera views.
