Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose framework for dynamically reconfigurable video codec. We introduce the concept of a virtual codec and a virtual tool to facilitate the use of multiple codec structures and multiple coding tools in a single video codec. Existing coding standards as well as new codec structures and coding tools can be integrated seamlessly in the proposed codec. The experimental results show that when implementing a standard codec such as H.263 the proposed codec can achieve a comparable performance to dedicated standard codecs. The results also demonstrate the codec's ability to use multiple coding tools and codec structures which are useful for implementing MSDL for MPEG-4 video.
