NTT Technical Review | Year: 2014
In recent years, worldwide attention has been focused on the distribution of 4K and 8K high-definition video. Video services for mobile terminals have also been expanding rapidly, and higher compressive power in video coding is expected. In response to this situation, the international standard HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding, otherwise known as H.265/MPEG-H) was established in April 2013. We introduce here a software coding engine developed by the NTT Media Intelligence Laboratories that conforms to HEVC and features the world's highest coding performance.
