Video codec standardization update for 360 degree video
When: Tuesday, August 1, 2017 6:30 PM – 8:15PM
Where: Intel SC12 Auditorium, 3600 Juliette Ln, Santa Clara, CA 95054
Abstract: MPEG and ITU-T VCEG are developing new SEI messages for HEVC to standardize coding of omnidirectional spherical video (also called 360° video), for inclusion in a new version of HEVC in late 2017. These SEI messages can be used with existing HEVC profiles, with projection mapping of the spherical video into a 2D rectangular format. New methods of objective and subjective testing for 360° video have been developed to study the impact of different projection formats on coding efficiency and video quality. The MPEG/VCEG Call for Evidence for a new video coding standard with capability beyond HEVC (e.g. a future H.266), includes a category for 360° video, and allows new specifically targeted coding tools.
Jill Boyce is Intel Fellow and Chief Media Architect in Intel’s Video and Parallel Computing Group. She represents Intel at the Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC) and Joint Video Exploration Team (JVET) of ITU-T SG16 and ISO/IEC MPEG, where she chairs ad-hoc groups on 360 Video, and in the Alliance for Open Media. She serves as Associate Rapporteur of ITU-T VCEG and was an editor of the Scalability High Efficiency Video Coding extension (SHVC).
