Summary This book provides developers, engineers, researchers and students with detailed knowledge about the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard. HEVC is the successor to the widely successful H.264/AVC video compression standard, and it provides around twice as much compression as H.264/AVC for the same level of quality. The applications for HEVC will not only cover the space of the well-known current uses and capabilities of digital video - they will also include the deployment of new services and the delivery of enhanced video quality, such as ultra-high-definition television (UHDTV) and video with higher dynamic range, wider range of representable color, and greater representation precision than what is typically found today. HEVC is the next major generation of video coding design - a flexible, reliable and robust solution that will support the next decade of video applications and ease the burden of video on world-wide network traffic. This book provides a detailed explanation of the various parts of the standard, insight into how it was developed, and in-depth discussion of algorithms and architectures for its implementation. The book serves the video engineering community by: * Providing video application developers with invaluable reference to the latest video standard, High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC); * Serving as a companion reference that is complementary to the HEVC standards document produced by the JCT-VC - a joint team of ITU-T VCEG and ISO/IEC MPEG; * Including in-depth discussion of algorithms and architectures for HEVC by some of the key video experts who have been directly involved in developing and deploying the standard; * Giving insight into the reasoning behind the development of the HEVC feature set, which will aid in understanding the standard and how to use it
