Question 6

Visual coding

(Continuation of Question 6/16 and part of Question 7/16)

Motivation
The goal of this Question is to produce Recommendations for visual signal coding methods appropriate for conversational (e.g. videoconferencing and video telephony) and non-conversational (e.g. multimedia streaming, broadcast TV, IPTV, file download, media storage/playback, remote screen display, digital cinema, or virtual & augmented reality) audiovisual services. Visual signal coding includes the coding of: This Question will focus on the maintenance and extension of existing video and still-image coding Recommendations, and laying the ground for new Recommendations using advanced techniques to significantly improve the trade-offs between bit rate, quality, delay, and algorithm complexity. Video, still-image, and other visual coding standards will be developed with sufficient flexibility to accommodate a diverse number of transport types (Internet, LAN, mobile, ISDN, GSTN, H.222.0, NGN, etc.).
