Interview with Dr. Thomas Wiegand, Editor of the H.264/SVC Standard

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.

What's Inside?

  • The H.264/SVC project and improvements over H.264/AVC
  • Impact of the SVC standard on video applications
  • Challenges for traditional video conferencing manufacturers

“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.”
