H.264 - VX4000S
Video Codecs

H.264 is the latest international video coding standard. It was developed by the Joint Video Team (JVT) of the Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) of the ITU-T and the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) of ISO/IEC.

It uses state-of-the-art coding tools and provides enhanced coding efficiency for a wide range of applications, including video telephony, video conferencing, TV, storage (DVD and/or hard disk based, especially high-definition DVD), streaming video, digital video authoring, digital cinema, and many others. In print, this video coding standard is usually represented as "H.264/MPEG4 (Part 10) Advanced Video Coding" to show that it was the result of collective efforts by the two expert groups. However, here at Agora Labs we usually refer to it as simply "H.264" for the sake of simplicity.

The Agora Labs VX4000S video codec conforms to the ITU-T H.264 (May 2003) Recommendation. This implementation was developed entirely at Agora Labs and includes advanced video coding technology including a patent pending bandwidth/quality mechanism that greatly improves video quality in bandwidth restricted environments.
