Dr. Thomas Wiegand is a distinguished electrical engineer whose name has come to be virtually synonymous with video compression technology. He discusses his motivation to work on scalable video coding, how the SVC project is progressing now, and what he sees ahead as the implications for Internet-based video applications.
“Scalable video coding enables features such as higher error resilience, rate-matching, and resolution adaptation while also maintaining lower end-to-end delay. Hence, SVC is the ideal standard for low-delay IP video communication.”
