The amount of data that has to be stored and transmitted for stereo-view video applications can be double of conventional mono-view video applications if a mono-view video coding method is applied directly. Although not designed for stereo-view video coding, the H.264 coding tools can be arranged to take advantage of the correlations between the pair of views of a stereo-view video, and provide very reliable and efficient compression performance as well as stereo/mono-view scalability. This paper introduces methods for coding stereo-view video sequences efficiently using the H.264 coding tools, such as the interlace-coding tools and the sub-sequence coding concept. With the help of the stereo video Supplemental Enhancement Information (SEI) message defined in H.264 Fidelity Range Extensions (FRExt), a decoder can easily synchronize the views, and a streaming server or a decoder can easily detect the scalability of a coded stereo video bitstream. Coding performances are shown in the paper for Main and Baseline profiles using both scalable and non-scalable coding options. The scalable coding options that can be signaled by the H.264 SEI messages could have coding performance similar to or better than that of proprietary system configurations for non-scalable coding.
