Broadcast Engineering (World Edition);Aug2011, Vol. 53 Issue 8, p18
The article presents information related to Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG)-4 Advanced Video Coding (AVC) systems used for efficient video coding. It is stated that a set of constraints on decoder performance is defined within MPEG profiles. It is noted that to achieve improvement, switchable transform and scaling matrices are added by the High Profile of MPEG.
