Lesson Video 1.8 Advanced video coding standards: AVC


This lesson will cover the Advanced Video Codec (AVC), the most commonly used video codec on the internet. The lesson will cover a comparative history of video codecs and their performances. This is followed by a deep dive into AVC, also known as H264, covering the codecs’ intra frames prediction mechanisms, quantization and DCT components. Lastly you’ll learn about the splitting of a frames into different macroblocks and how these can be efficiently encoded to preserve quality via deblocking and entropy coding.
