DVB members have been discussing the capabilities of five new video coding solutions.
The DVB’s working groups on audio and video coding (AVC) this week hosted a one-day workshop on the codecs, which attracted more than 140 participants, despite being restricted to DV members.
The codecs represented at the workshop were: AV1 (from the Alliance for Open Media); AVS3 (from the Audio Video Coding Standard Workgroup of China); MPEG-5 EVC (with Samsung, Huawei and Qualcomm as the lead proponents); MPEG-I VVC (from the Joint Video Experts Team of ITU-T and ISO/IEC and promoted by MC-IF); and MPEG LCEVC (which was presented by V-Nova).
The inclusion of a codec did not imply that it had been endorsed by DVB.
Jan Outters (SES), the vice-chair of the DVB Commercial Module’s working group on AVC, and lead organizer of the workshop said the workshop was designed as preparation for forthcoming discussions in the technical and commercial working groups.
