Description:

Fully revised and updated, this book reflects the growing importance and implementation of H.264. It provides a clear overview of the H.264 system, covering the basic video coding concepts, information on video formats and qualities, as-well as the extensions published since 2003. The book discusses the current work that is being performed on a scalable version of H.264 and the new implementation areas. It gives the reader a practical view of the standard, including case studies of H.264 codecs and comparisons of the capabilities and performance of H.264 with other popular standards.
