Efficiently Predicting Quality with ATHENA’s Video Complexity Analyzer (VCA) project

For online prediction in live streaming applications, selecting low-complexity features is critical to ensure low-latency video streaming without disruptions. For each frame/ video/ video segment, two features, i.e., the average texture energy and the average gradient of the texture energy are determined. A DCT-based energy function is introduced to determine the block-wise texture of each…

Video Compression Basics: What is video transcoding, why is it important, and how does it apply to my everyday life?

What is Transcoding? In the context of video – Transcoding refers to the process of compressing video files as much as possible at minimal quality loss to represent (and transfer) information by using less data. Essentially, video transcoding online is the conversion of a video file from one format to a better-compressed version to ensure…
