Performance of HEVC upcoming video compression standard for UHDTV


High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is the latest attempt by ISO/MPEG and ITU-T/VCEG to define the next generation compression standard beyond H.264/MPEG-4 Part 10 AVC. One of the major goals of High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is to provide efficient compression for resolutions beyond HDTV. However, the subjective evaluations that led to the selection of technologies were bound to HDTV resolution. Moreover, performance evaluation metrics to report efficiency results of this standard are mainly based on PSNR, especially for resolutions beyond HDTV. Subjective evaluation results to assess the performance of the current HEVC codec for resolutions beyond HDTV will be described.

Martin Rerabek received his M.Sc. degree in 2005 from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEE), Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU), Prague, Czech Republic. The main topic of the diploma thesis was Applications of Fourier Optics. He is finishing his Ph.D. in Multimedia Technology Group (MMTG) at the Department of Radio Engineering, CTU, FEE. His main activity is devoted to the modeling of space variant optical systems and their impact to precision of scientific (astronomical) data processing.

Since September 2010 he works as a reseach assistant in Multimedia Signal Processing Group, which is led by Professor Touradj Ebrahimi, at …cole Polytechnique FÈdÈrale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland. His main research interest is focused on processing of 3D QoE on mobile devices.
