Fraunhofer Institute presents 50% more effective HEVC successor VVC at // IBC 2018

Fraunhofer Institute presents 50% more effective HEVC successor VVC at // IBC 2018

[09:28 wed,12.September 2018   by ]    

The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute will present the successor of the HEVC codec, the Versatile Video Coding (VVC), for the first time at IBC 2018. Furthermore, it will present VR 360° live streaming with a 10K x 4K resolution via MPEG-OMAF and HEVC tiles as well as a novel capture studio including a processing workflow for high-quality volumetric video productions for future VR/AR media productions and the live transmission of MPEG-H audio and celebrate the anniversary of easyDCP.

In April, the standardization of the Versatile Video Coding (VVC) named HEVC successor was started. It is expected to be completed in 2020 with the result that the final standard will achieve 50 percent bit rate reduction compared to HEVC.

Fraunhofer HHI will present the current version of the VVC reference codec (VTM-2.0) to the public for the first time at IBC 2018. The early version already shows significant increases in compression efficiency compared to HEVC for a wide range of video content from High Definition (HD) to High Dynamic Range Ultra-HD.

In the future, the VVC codec will have to compete with the new open standard AV1, which already has significant improvements over HEVC/H.265 and compresses about 40% more effectively. Its advantage: it is free and is already being implemented (for example in Google Chrome, VLC Player, FFmpeg and Opera Browser).

By 2020, the Alliance for Open Media, which includes major companies such as Amazon, Apple, ARM, Cisco, Facebook, Google, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Mozilla, Netflix and Nvidia, will be able to play all new AV1 consumer devices coming onto the market. VVC will probably have a hard time against this then established competition, especially since the effectiveness of AV! should be further increased by then and will possibly come close to the 50% of VVC.

At IBC Fraunhofer IIS will celebrate the 10th anniversary of easyDCP and show the next version with new features like new validation modules, HDR support for Dolby Vision content and faster workflows for transcoding video material.

The Fraunhofer HHI will also present for the first time in Europe continuous VR360 degree live video streaming at the IBC. The demonstration includes 360-degree video recording and live rendering from the Fraunhofer HHI Omnicam-360 with a resolution of 10K x 4K, HEVC Tile-based live encoding with the Fraunhofer HHI HEVC encoder, packaging of the video streams with the new MPEG-OMAF viewport-dependent media profile and transmission and playback on the latest VR glasses and TV screens.
