Heil The New xVC Heir: HVC

For the record and also as an update, here is my guest post at RADVISION's Video over Enterprise blog.
"The HVC efforts have already begun. Based on the current timeline, one can expect the new standard to be available around the end of 2012/beginning of 2013. This may seem far away, but as many video infrastructure products have a 2 year design process, this is very relevant to today’s design efforts.
And so we are looking forward to a new and very exciting xVC episode, and it will be very interesting to see how the new standard evolves and whether it will fit today’s expectations. Thus, stay tuned!"

The latest information about High-performance Video Coding (HVC) can be found at the MPEG Web site and here are links to the publicly available documents:
Most interestingly, the joint CfP on HVC - joint between MPEG and ITU-T - and the vision and requirements documents. If you're interested in the upcoming discussions around HVC you may join the mailing list or even the #HVC Twitter stream (alt) ;-)
