By Iain E. Richardson

H.264 complicated Video Coding or MPEG-4 half 10 is prime to a starting to be diversity of markets similar to excessive definition broadcasting, web video sharing, cellular video and electronic surveillance. This publication displays the becoming significance and implementation of H.264 video know-how. delivering a close evaluate of the process, it explains the syntax, instruments and lines of H.264 and equips readers with functional recommendation on the best way to get the main out of the standard.
* filled with transparent examples and illustrations to give an explanation for H.264 know-how in an available and sensible manner.
* Covers simple video coding innovations, video codecs and visible caliber.
* Explains tips to degree and optimise the functionality of H.264 and the way to stability bitrate, computation and video caliber.
* Analyses fresh paintings on scalable and multi-view types of H.264, case reviews of H.264 formats and new technological advancements equivalent to the preferred excessive Profile extensions.
* a useful better half for builders, broadcasters, approach integrators, teachers and scholars who are looking to grasp this burgeoning state of the art technology.

"[This ebook] unravels the mysteries at the back of the most recent H.264 average and delves deeper into all the operations within the codec. The reader can enforce (simulate, layout, review, optimize) the codec with all profiles and degrees. The ebook ends with extensions and instructions (such as SVC and MVC) for additional research."  Professor ok. R. Rao, The college of Texas at Arlington, co-inventor of the Discrete Cosine Transform

2). Video from a camera is encoded and transmitted across a network, decoded and displayed. This occurs in two directions simultaneously. Each of these examples includes an encoder, which compresses or encodes an input video signal into a coded bitstream, and a decoder, which decompresses or decodes the coded bitstream to produce an output video signal. The encoder or decoder is often built in to a device such as a video camera or a DVD player. 264 Advanced Video Compression Standard Driving the change The consumer applications discussed above represent very large markets.

The most widely used measure is Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR) but the limitations of this metric have led to many efforts to develop more sophisticated measures that approximate the response of ‘real’ human observers. 5) is measured on a logarithmic scale and depends on the mean squared error (MSE) between an original and an impaired image or video frame, relative to (2n − 1)2 , the square of the highest-possible signal value in the image, where n is the number of bits per image sample. 5) PSNR can be calculated easily and quickly and is therefore a very popular quality measure, widely used to compare the ‘quality’ of compressed and decompressed video images.
