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.
