Abstract
Handheld battery-operated consumer electronics devices such as camera phones, digital still cameras, digital camcorders, and personal media players have become very popular in recent years. Video codecs are extensively used in these devices for video capture and/or playback. The annual shipment of such devices already exceeds a hundred million units and is growing, which makes mobile battery-operated video device requirements very important to focus in video coding research and development. This paper highlights the following unique set of requirements for video coding for these applications: low power consumption, high video quality at low complexity, and low cost, and motivates the need for a new video coding standard that enables better trade-offs of power consumption, complexity, and coding efficiency to meet the challenging requirements of portable video devices. This paper also provides a brief overview of some of the video coding technologies being presented in the ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) standardization body for computational complexity reduction and for coding efficiency improvement in a future video coding standard.
