DURATION 2 Half Days

Course Overview

This seminar reviews the two codecs which will dominate the video coding scene in the next years: HEVC/H.265 and VP9. The lecture will provide an overview of the two codecs, the industry position,  the stream syntax as well as coding and testing tools
On-line Training
This Training is delivered as live on-line training, tacking advantage of the E-Learning Technology:
– Everywhere, every time, from you office/home
– ½ day session: No need to stop your project
– No travel expense & time

Who should attend?

Engineers, team leaders, development managers, product managers who wish to understand future codecs and coding requirements

Prerequisite:

Understanding of coding techniques like DCT and entropy coding

Course Outline:

Session 1
1. Current and future video trends

  • Larger Screens (8K / 4K)
  • Better CPU / Larger ASIC / Parallelization
  • Better compression
  • Screen Compression, Low Delay
  • Improved random access (FF/RW/Trick Mode/Ad insertion)

2. HEVC/H.265 Overview

  • Main Features and Additions
  • Current Implementations & Open Source
  • Mapping between H.264 & H.265

3. HEVC/H.265 Syntax

  • Headers, Frame types, Slices, NAL types
  • Parallelization: Tiles, Weavefront
  • Profiles, Levels and Tiers
  • Hands-On analysis using H.265 analyzer
