Video Coding Technologies

The main focus of our group is on the research and development of new video compression concepts that may eventually be included in future video coding standards and thus be used by video consumers worldwide. We do both fundamental research in the field of compression and work on transforming insights gained there into applicable technologies. A lot of our recent developments are part of the upcoming Versatile Video Coding Standard. 

Research Topics

Our research deals with the various aspects of modern video coding, ranging from quantization and source coding over sample value prediction to perceptually optimized encoder control.
