    IEEE BTS Webcast: VVC: The new Versatile Video Coding standard

    IEEE BTS Webcast: VVC: The new Versatile Video Coding standard


    Wednesday, April 21, 2021 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT

    VVC is the new generation of joint ISO/IEC MPEG / ITU-T VCEG video coding standard, successor to the successful HEVC and AVC (also called H.264) video coding standards. As with previous generations, VVC is based on a hybrid video coding design, and aims to offer up to 50% bitrate reduction at the same quality compared to HEVC. In addition, VVC has been designed to support newer and more versatile use cases, such as extraction or merging of image regions at the bitstream level or improved functionalities for streaming.
