Abstract
This paper introduces the VISNET II DVC codec. This codec
achieves very high RD performance thanks to the efficient
combination of many state-of-the-art coding tools into a
fully practical video codec. Experimental results show that
the proposed DVC codec consistently outperforms
H.264/AVC Intra. For sequences with coherent motion, it
even surpasses H.264/AVC zero-motion. Finally, it is also
always better than the DISCOVER DVC codec. Therefore, it
is expected that the proposed high performing DVC codec
will be used by other researchers in the field as a reference
to benchmark their results.
