MSU MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 2012 Video Codec Comparison - CALL FOR CODECS

Dear video codec developers,

Moscow State University Graphics & Multimedia Laboratory
starts next eighth annual H.264 video codecs comparison.

New this year features:
  • GPU codecs will be analyzed:Nvidia, AMD, and Ivy Bridge based encoders.
    This year we want to make GPU-encoders analysis more
    interesting and complex. For this analysis we plan to use top GPUs,
    e.g. Nvidia and AMD and also to analyze Intel Ivy Bridge (Intel HD
    Graphics 4000) based encoder. Developers can send us
    GPU-accelerated or GPU-based encoder with or without CPU-based
  • We plan to include new codecs that did not participate in previous
    comparison by choosing presets for them ourself.
    For that task we will use option analysis. So we will be glad to
    have a direct contact with codec developers. The main benefit of
    direct participation for developers is that developer could help us
    to choose correct settings for better results and additionally
    developers receive Enterprise version of comparison free of charge.
  • Videoconference encoding analysis will be more complex comparing
    to previous comparison.
  • New video sequences including professional video sequences for video codec analysis

Important Dates
February, 17 - Deadline for receipt of a H.264 codec with presets
February, 28 - Deadline for settling technical problems with codec
April, 24 - Report's draft will be sent to all participants
