Introducing 8K: The Final Frontier?

Introducing 8K: The Final Frontier? | Video Compression | Scoop.it

Keeping apace with camera technology is like running a race where the finish line keeps on moving. Just as the next generation of games consoles go on sale boasting the ability to display 4K images (although for the moment only those with the salary of a pro-footballer can afford screens able to make use of all those pixels) Japanese broadcaster NHK has started to film and broadcast events in 8K. NHK are so excited about the technology that they have commissioned filmmakers to make short films showcasing 8K, which were screened at the recent Tokyo International Film Festival.

Delivering on the promise of HTML5 video

Delivering on the promise of HTML5 video | Video Compression | Scoop.it

Earlier this month the Web standards body, W3C, announced the first draft of the Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) specification, which will allow content providers to add content protection to HTML5 videos for the first time. While EME will not handle the encryption process or Digital Rights Management (DRM) system, it will provide a standard for third-party plug-ins to support DRM in the web browser. The news elicited a mixed response from web platform commentators but there is no doubting its significance for the digital TV community.

 

Right now, the appetite for HTML5 video is strong, as a platform for a consistent, cross-device viewing experience. Developed with the new breed of mobile and OTT-capable devices in mind, HTML5 makes it possible, in theory, to standardise playback on any device, via the browser, and eliminates the need for plug-ins to create rich video playback experiences.

 

While ideal for basic video playback, HTML5 has a way to go before it becomes a fully-fledged solution for the most demanding use cases of online video delivery. In the interim, workaround tools, and online video platforms have emerged to help content producers and developers deliver on the multi-platform promise.

Building an Online Video Player with DASH-264

Building an Online Video Player with DASH-264 | Video Compression | Scoop.it

MPEG-DASH introduced open standards into HTTP streaming but did not include the client application as part of their standards. Online video player developers have been left to fend for themselves in determining how best to build the client side applications to consume DASH content. This article discusses the current state of online video, delves into the DASH standard, explores the challenges of building a DASH player, and, finally, walks through the basics of implementing the open source Dash.js player.

H265 - part I : Technical Overview [Fabio Sonnati]

H265 - part I : Technical Overview [Fabio Sonnati] | Video Compression | Scoop.it

HEVC is among us. On January 25, 2013, the ITU announced the completition of the first stage approval of the H.265 video codec standard and in the last 1 year several vendors/entities have started to work on the first implementations of H.265 encoders and decoders. Theoretically HEVC is said to be from 30 to 50% more efficient than H.264 (especially at higher resolutions) but is it really that simple ? is H.264 so close to retirement ? This is what we will try to find. First of all let’s start with a technical analysis of H.265 compared to AVC and then, in the next blog post, we will take a look at the current level of performance that is realistic to obtain in today’s H.265 encoders.
