Abstract

Compression algorithms have evolved significantly in recent years. Audio, still image, and video can be compressed significantly by taking advantage of the natural redundancies that occur within them. Video compression in particular has made significant advances. MPEG-1 and MPEG-2, two of the major video compression standards, allowed video to be compressed at very low bit rates compared to the original video. The compression ratio for video that is perceptually lossless (losses can't be visually perceived) can even be as high as 40 or 50 to 1 for certain videos. Videos with a small degradation in quality can be compressed at 100 to 1 or more; Although the MPEG standards provided low bit rate compression, even higher quality compression is required for efficient transmission over limited bandwidth networks, wireless networks, and broadcast mediums. Significant gains have been made over the current MPEG-2 standard in a newly developed standard called the Advanced Video Coder, also known as H.264 and MPEG-4 part 10. (Abstract shortened by UMI.).
