MPEG Video Compression Advances
Today’s flagship in the MPEG fleet of video coding standards is the Advanced Video Coding (AVC) standard . This chapter is devoted to a discussion of the AVC design and its capabilities. The AVC standard has achieved a significant improvement in compression capability compared to prior standards, and it provides a network-friendly representation of video that addresses both non-conversational (storage, broadcast, or streaming) and conversational (videotelephony) applications. Extensions of AVC have given it efficient support for additional functionality such as scalability at the bitstream level and 3D stereo/multiview coding.
