讲座题目: Beyond High Efficiency Video Coding – An Overview

主讲人: Prof. Christos Graikos, 美国中央华盛顿大学计算机系主任


This talk presents advancements on the state of the art High Efficiency Video Coding Standard (HEVC), in the context of the Joint Exploration Model (JEM). This model is still under development from the ITU and promises significant improvements in the Rate Distortion Performance of HEVC through an assortment of coding tools. These tools are presented in algorithmic detail and comparisons between HEVC and JEM are drawn.
