Paper Abstract

This paper discusses standardization activities for extending the capabilities of the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard – the first edition of which was completed in early 2013. These near-term extensions are focused on three areas: range extensions (such as enhanced chroma formats, monochrome video, and increased bit depth), bitstream scalability extensions for spatial and fidelity scalability, and 3D video extensions (including stereoscopic/multi-view coding, and probably also depth map coding and combinations thereof). Standardization extensions on each of these topics will be completed by mid-2014, and further work beyond that timeframe is also discussed.
