This amendment specifies two enhancements of AVC:

1) It specifies a new Level 5.2 for AVC profiles that is capable of supporting high resolution video at high frame rates, such as 4096x2160 @ 60p, and

2) It specifies an additional profile of AVC called the Progressive High Profile, that is similar to the previously-existing High Profile but does not support field picture coding and macroblock-adaptive frame/field coding (i.e., features informally known as "interlace coding tools").

 

1.3         MPEG Frame-Compatible Enhancement for AVC

Std

Pt

Amd

Req

Short description

This exploration effort considers the potential for scalable enhancement of the resolution of "frame compatible" stereo video coding. The current "frame compatible" stereo video coding technology involves packing together the right and left views of a stereo 3D video scene representation using only half the resolution that would be used for a corresponding 2D video representation. This effort considers the standardization of a scalable enhancement to enable next-generation services using coded enhancement data to increase the quality of the delivered video by enabling new devices to decode a full-resolution representation of the stereo 3D video.

3rd E

 

This standard contains all the 3D Graphics tools developed by MPEG since 2001. They are classified in representation and compression tools. In the first category there are high order surface representation, subdivision surfaces, implicit equation-based volume representation, shape deformation models. The 3D Graphics compression toolbox handles three types of graphics data: geometry (3D Mesh Compression, Wavelet Subdivision Surface, MeshGrid, FootPrint), appearance (Depth-based Image Representation, PointTexture) and animation (Bone-based Animation, Frame-based Animated Mesh Compression). The standard also defines profiles for using MPEG-4 3D Graphics tools in applications.

 

1.5         Multiresolution profile

 

Std

This standard defines three profiles: one for Graphics dimension (called Basic AFX Graphics), one for Scene Graph dimension (called Basic AFX Scene Graph) and one for compression dimension (called 3D MultiResolution Compression). The combination of the three profiles allows progressive and adaptive transmission over networks of large 3D environments and/or complex 3D shapes.

 

1.6         Scalable-complexity 3D mesh compression

 

Std

Amd

Req

Short description

SC-3DMC aims to provide efficient and scalable-complexity 3D mesh compression for 3D vertex positions, normals, texture coordinates, other attributes per vertex, and topology. Scalable complexity is targeted for both, decoder and encoder. In particular, this standard aims to enable real-time applications on devices with low computational and memory capacities such as smart phones.

 

1.7         Efficient representation of 3D meshes with multiple attributes

 

Std

To  fix possible backward compatibility issues related to introduction of the new subtable formats for 杜any-to-one character range mappings・in last-resort fonts.  The changes introduced by this amendment ensure that new fonts can be rendered by the existing font engines and provide a mechanism that would allow existing font engines to completely ignore the new subtable formats while allowing them to be used in newly designed fonts.

 

1.9         Composite Font in Open Font Format

 

Std

Pt

Amd

Req

Short description

22

 

 

The advances in developing the Unicode Standard and the addition of new characters that represent most of the world's languages and writing systems resulted in a significant increase of the Unicode character repertoire to more than 100,000 characters. However, due to the finite size of many bitfields, the existing ISO/IEC 14496-22:2009 specification only provides the capabilities for a single font to support up to 64K glyphs. The Composite Font Standard is intended to resolve the existing limitation by providing a solution that would allow linking of existing OFF fonts (and, possibly, fonts in other formats) into a single Composite Font to be used as a virtual font by any compliant implementation.

Spatial Audio Object Coding represents several audio objects by first combining the object signals into a mono or stereo signal, whilst extracting parameters from the individual object signals based on knowledge of human perception of the sound stage. These parameters are coded as a low bitrate side-channel that the decoder uses to render an audio scene from the stereo or mono down-mix such that the aspects of the output composition can be decided at the time of decoding.

Unified Speech and Audio Coding is a single, unified coder with performance that equals or surpasses that of dedicated speech coders for speech signals and dedicated music coders for music signals over a broad range of bitrates. It employs time-domain linear prediction and residual coding tools for speech-like signal segments and transform coding tools for music-like signal segments and is able to switch between the tool sets in a dynamic, signal-responsive manner.

 

1.15    High-Efficiency Video Coding

Std

Pt

Amd

Req

Short description

 

 

 

 

The overall amount of video data rate that is to be transferred over networks will continue to grow at a very fast pace, driven by the increased number of services and users and the increasing resolution of video from SD to HD and beyond.

High-efficiency video coding (HEVC) is the next generation of video compression technology that will have clearly higher compression capability than the existing AVC standard in its dominant configuration, the High Profile. The HEVC standard will support all commonly used progressive scan picture formats, ranging at least from QVGA (320x240) to Ultra HD resolutions such as 8Kx4K, as well as picture formats of arbitrary size.

Specifies syntax and semantics of the tools required to provide interoperability in controlling devices in real as well as virtual world. The scope of this Part of the standard covers the interfaces between the adaptation engine and the capability descriptions of actuators (sensory devices)/sensors (SDC/SC) in the real world and the user痴 sensory preference information (USEP), which characterizes devices and users, so that appropriate information to control individual devices (actuators and sensors) for individual users can be generated. In other words, user痴 sensory effect preferences, sensory device capabilities, and sensor capabilities are within the scope of this Part of the standard. These tools are defined in this Part of the standard using XML Schema. The overall structure of the tools are organized and defined by specifying Control Information Description Language (CIDL). The CIDL enables the instantiation of three types of descriptions. The actual descriptions (sensory device capabilities, sensor capabilities, and user痴 sensory effect preferences) are not part of CIDL, but defined as the Device Capability Description Vocabulary (DCDV), Sensor Capability Description Vocabulary (SCDV), and User痴 Sensory Effect Preference Vocabulary (SEPV), respectively.

To be specific, basic data types which are used as basic building blocks in more than one tools of ISO/IEC 23005, color-related basic types which are used in light and color related tools to help specifying color related characteristics of the devices or commands, and time stamp types which can be used in device commands and sensed informations to specify timing related information. Also several classification schemes which are used in more than one parts of ISO/IEC 23005 are defined in the annex of this part. Other tools to be developed shall be included in this part of ISO/IEC 23005, if those tools are to be commonly used with more than one tool which are defined in different parts of ISO/IEC 23005. Please note that most of the tools defined  in this part are not intended to be used alone, but to be used as a part or as a supporting tool of other tools defined in other part of ISO/IEC 23005.

 

1.21    3D Video Coding

 

Std

Pt

Amd

Req

Short description

 

 

 

 

3D video (3DV) supports new types of audio-visual systems that allow users to view videos of the real 3D space from different user viewpoints.  In an advanced application of 3DV, denoted as Free-viewpoinT Video (FTV), a user can set the viewpoint to an almost arbitrary location and direction, which can be static, change abruptly, or vary continuously, within the limits that are given by the available camera setup. Similarly, the audio listening point is changed accordingly. 

The first phase of 3DV development is expected to support advanced 3D displays, where M dense views must be generated from a sparse set of K transmitted views (typically K3) with associated depth data. The allowable range of view synthesis will be relatively narrow (20 degrees view angle from leftmost to rightmost view).

Reconfigurable Graphics Coding (RGC) is borrowing the essential idea of the RVC framework that is a dynamic dataflow mechanism of constructing new video codecs by a collection of video coding tools from video tool libraries. The difference is here that RGC deals with graphics, therefore its goal is to set up the collection of graphics tool library.

The proposed amendment 7 describes the signaling of frame compatible coding in MPEG-2 video component and service compatible stereoscopic video services that use simulcast of MPEG-2 and AVC video components. For frame compatible signaling of MPEG-2 video component, an optional stream_type and descriptor is proposed. This enables compatible delivery of such services to both 'upgradable' and non-upgradable (deployed) receivers. This signaling scheme for service compatible mode supports delivery of service compatible 3D stereoscopic video where the base view video stream (which is usually 2D compatible) and the additional view video stream are coded independently using either MPEG-2 or AVC video or any combination thereof.The signaling includes new stream_type values and descriptors that assist in composition and rendering of 3D video.

DASH provides a standard way for the adaptive delivery of multimedia content to the enduser. DASH supports on demand and live streaming of multimedia including MPEG content. It enables the dynamically adaption of the content to the network fluctuations and to various device capabilities. It also provide the efficient and ease of use of existing content distribution intrastate finally supports signaling, delivery and utilization of multiple contracture components such as CDNs, proxies, caches, NATs and firewalls, which make it ready to be deployed into existing networks. Finally, DASH supports on demand and live streaming media content with the best quality of experience, as content protection and right managements schemes to provide content protected cases.

ISO/IEC 23006 or MPEG-M is a suite of standards on Multimedia Service Platform Technologies developed for the purpose of enabling the easy design and implementation of media-handling value chains whose devices interoperate because they are all based on the same set of technologies, especially technologies standardised by MPEG, accessible from the middleware and multimedia services.

This part of ISO/IEC 23006 specifies the architecture of the Service Oriented Architecture character that is made accessible through the set of MPEG-M middleware APIs (MPEG-M part 2), elementary services (MPEG-M part 4) and service aggregation (MPEG-M part 5).

This aims to provide a compact representation of the dynamic volume preset in ISO/IEC 23000-12 Interactive music application format. The volume changes can be specified by using time intervals so that dynamic volume changes can be approximated by combinations of linear modeling. Based on this, new representation method provides less required storage space and file parsing complexity of IM AF players while the errors in the volume levels due to time interval approximation which does not affect the audio quality significantly.
