Advances in the Emerging Standard H.264/AVC
Where:  Denver, Colorado, USA
When:  2-6 August 2004 (ITU-T Session, 5 August 2004)
Why:  ITU-T will lend its support to two sessions within SPIE's (The International Society for Optical Engineering) conference on Applications of Digital Image Processing XXVII.

H.264 / Advanced Video Coding (AVC) is a novel video compression standard developed jointly by the Joint Video Team of ITU-T Q.6/SG16 VCEG and ISO/IEC MPEG. This new standard has already gained wide industry acceptance and is being adopted in many regional and industry-specific standards because of its high compression efficiency when compared to legacy schemes such as H.262/MPEG-2.

The two sessions on H.264/AVC will promote awareness of the new standard with presentations on current technical features, technical features seen for future extensions, licensing issues, implementation verification and conformance. The day will be complemented by a panel discussion on the impact of H.264/AVC.
