"The High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC/H.265) Standard and its Extensions"

Engineering Science Building, Room 2003

Video traffic is dominating both the wireless and wireline networks. Globally, IP video is expected to be 73% of all IP traffic in 2017, up from 60% in 2012. On wireless networks, video is expected to be 66% of global mobile data traffic in 2017, compared to 51% at the end of 2012 (Cisco VNI forecast). Additionally broadcasters and TV manufacturers are moving from 1080p HD to 4K Ultra-HD with 4K TVs already available in the market for early adopters. The explosive growth in video traffic and the increasing requirements for higher video resolution are driving the need for increased compression. The latest video coding standard called High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC/H.265) has been developed to address these needs by delivering 50% higher compression than the current state of the art, H.264/AVC. This talk will give an overview of HEVC/H.265 and the key improvements over H.264/AVC. It will also highlight recent work in the standards body on HEVC extensions on range extensions, scalable coding, and multiview coding.

His responsibilities in TI include R&D on compression algorithms, their embedded software implementation and prototyping, and video SoC architecture for TI products in addition to video coding standards participation. Dr. Budagavi represents TI in ITU and ISO/IEC international video coding standardization activity. He has been an active participant in the next generation video coding standard HEVC being standardized by JCTVC committee of ITU and ISO/IEC. Within the JCTVC committee he has helped co-ordinate sub-group activities on spatial transforms, quantization, entropy coding, in-loop filter, intra prediction, screen content coding and scalable HEVC (SHVC). Dr. Budagavi received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Texas A & M University in 1998. He has published six book chapters and over 35 conference and journal papers. He is currently co-editing a book on HEVC algorithms and architecture. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
