Busan Workshop on New Challenges in Video Coding Standardization – Program

Video compression has been a very active area of defining standards over the last 30 years. To face the challenges that emerging applications impose on the requirements of video coding standardization, ISO/IEC WG11 (MPEG) will hold a full-day workshop on 14 October 2008, during the 86th WG11 meeting in Korea.

The key intention of the workshop is to acquire solid information about the context in which video coding will be operating in the future, which will enable MPEG to draw conclusions for the needs and chances in video coding standardization during the next years and to start drafting three key documents: technology context, applications and requirements for a new High-Performance Video Coding (HVC) standard. For this purpose speakers have been invited on key topics for the morning sessions, and in addition regular proposed contributions were accepted for the noon and afternoon sessions.

The Workshop will be held on 14 October 2008 from 9:00-18:00 at Crystal Ballroom #3, 3rd Floor, Busan Lotte Hotel, 503-15 Bujeon-Dong Pusanjin-Gu Busan, Korea 614-030.
