Everyone is familiar with Moore’s Law which states that semiconductor processors double in performance every couple of years. In the video coding area, a derivative of Moore’s Law has emerged. MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 are vintage early 90’s, while MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) was finalized in 2003. And now with the MPEG/ITU-T High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard and Google’s VP9, both being finalized in 2013, video compression efficiency appears to be doubling roughly every 10 years. In order to fill up all the new mobile SmartPhone and tablet screens, as well as eventually moving us into the spectacular world of 4K and 8K “Ultra HDTV,” every bit of this efficiency will be needed.
How do video engineers continue to dramatically improve video compression technology? What will be the market adoption curve for content and service providers to leverage these new techniques? How will 3D, Scalable Video and Ultra HDTV be enabled? What are some of the other important applications these new standards will give rise to?
