Fraunhofer HHI shows latest video technologies at IBC 2019

11.09.2019

The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI will present current video technology innovations at IBC 2019 in Amsterdam from September 13 to 17. At the Fraunhofer joint booth 8.B80, Fraunhofer HHI researchers will show the most recent version of the Versatile Video Coding (VVC) reference codec as well as a first prototype of their live software decoder for the upcoming VVC standard. Fraunhofer HHI and Volucap GmbH will also present a novel and innovative capture studio as well as a processing workflow for high quality volumetric video productions targeting future VR/AR media productions.

Versatile Video Coding (VVC): Video compression 2020 with live decoding


Compressed video data are growing at a faster rate than ever before. Already today, video data make up by far the highest percentage of bits on the Internet and in mobile traffic. This demonstrates the need for even more efficient compression, which goes beyond the current state of the art High Efficiency Video Coding standard (HEVC).

In order to master this demanding challenge, the ITU-T Video Coding Expert Group (VCEG) and the ISO/IEC Moving Pictures Expert Group (MPEG) have already started working together in the Joint Video Experts Team (JVET). In April 2018, Fraunhofer HHI and other leading technology companies successfully proposed cutting edge coding technology with compression capability beyond HEVC.

This marked the starting point of the Versatile Video Coding (VVC) standardization activity. The VVC standard is expected to provide 50% bit rate reduction over HEVC when finalized by 2020.

At IBC 2019, Fraunhofer HHI will showcase the most recent version of the VVC reference codec. This version demonstrates significant bit rate reductions over HEVC for content ranging from standard High Definition (HD) to High Dynamic Range Ultra-HD content. Additionally, Fraunhofer HHI will be presenting a first prototype of its live software decoder for the upcoming VVC standard.

Volumetric Video Production and Workflow

Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute and Volucap GmbH present a novel and innovative capture studio as well as a processing workflow for high quality volumetric video productions targeting future VR/AR media productions.

In June 2018, the first volumetric video studio at European mainland has been opened commercial productions in film park Potsdam-Babelsberg, Germany. Real persons are captured with multiple high-resolution cameras in a professional studio environment.

A powerful processing suite automatically generates naturally moving dynamic 3D models, which can be integrated in AR/VR applications. The system supports diffuse or synchronized scenic lighting from any direction, automatic keying, and flexible multi-camera arrangement.
