H.264 - VX4000S
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.
