Sapporo JCT-VC and MPEG Meetings - Jun/Jul 2014

Sapporo JCT-VC and MPEG Meetings - Jun/Jul 2014 | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

NGCodec was at the JCT-VC/MPEG Meeting in Sapporo to help the industry to continue with the development of the HEVC standard. This was a busy meeting where we did substantial work over 9 days. JCT-VC finished the work on the 2nd version of the HEVC text covering the enhancements related to scalability (SHVC), completed the work on HEVC Test Model (HM15) software and text, the version 1 conformance and accelerated the work in relation to the coding of screen content (SCC). They were a number of additional MPEG activities that were conducted outside JCT-VC, mostly in relation to High Dynamic Range video (HDR) and royalty free codecs.

VP8 could become MPEG standard

VP8 could become MPEG standard | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

With the clearing of the patent issues that have cast a shadow over VP8's acceptability to open standards organisations as a open, royalty-free video codec, it is likely that its next major stop is becoming an MPEG standard. According to Rob Glidden, video patent analyst, Google proposed VP8 as the codec for MPEG's IVC in January. IVC is the name of one of the tracks that the ISO/IEC MPEG working group wasexploring in its search for a royalty-free codec for web video and other uses. It had been looking at technologies where the patents were expiring.

 

But it appears that Google wanted to give the process a boost. Glidden points to a posting on the Internet Engineering Task Force mailing list from a Google WebRTC developer, where the Google/MPEG LA deal was announced, that notes:

 

7. Submitted VP8 to ISO SC29/WG11 (MPEG) in January of this year
for standardization.

Delivery of Timeline for External Data in MPEG-2 Transport Stream

Contribution presented during the 104th MPEG meeting and related to the delivery of timeline for external data in MPEG-2 Transport Stream.

Nicolas Weil's insight:

While not mentionned as a use case, there is a good potential with second-screen situations where we need to get a precise timecode for the program.

MPEG Augmented Reality Tutorial

A tutorial from Marius Preda, MPEG 3DG chair, at the Web3D conference in August 2012.

 

MPEG's application format dealing with augmented reality reached DIS status and is only one step away from becoming in international standard. In a nutshell, the MPEG ARAF enables to augment 2D/3D regions of scene by combining multiple/existing standards within a specific application format addressing certain industry needs. In particular, ARAF comprises three components referred to as scene, sensor/actuator, and media. The scene component is represented using a subset of MPEG-4 Part 11 (BIFS), the sensor/actuator component is defined within MPEG-V, and the media component may comprise various type of compressed (multi)media assets using different sorts of modalities and codecs.
