Google has recently finalized a next-generation open-source video codec called VP9, as part of the libvpx repository of the WebM project. Starting from the VP8 video codec released by Google in 2010 as the baseline, many enhancements and new tools were added, resulting in the next-generation bit-stream VP9 that was finalized in June 2013. The open-source project has since moved to the next phase – namely, efficient implementation of the encoder and decoder for various use-cases. The talk will introduce attendees to the coding tools included in VP9 along with the rationale for their inclusion. Coding results comparing VP9 to other state-of-the-art video codecs – H.264/AVC and HEVC – on standard test sets will also be provided. Further, the talk will provide pointers on how interested parties can be involved with the WebM project and contribute either to the master VP9 branch or a divergent experimental branch that can hopefully become a future-generation codec.
