Paper Abstract

H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Fidelity Range Extensions (FRExt), Amendment 1 to the new video standard, was created to allow for higher quality, higher bit depth coding with richer color space support. A key impact of this extension has been to also create an important new profile (High Profile) which supports the traditional 8-bit, 4:2:0 color space, but with improved performance. Finished in July, 2004, this new standard is being aggressively adopted by industry, especially for future high-definition TV and DVD applications. In this paper, we provide a high-level snapshot of what is new in the FRExt Amendment relative to the base standard, and indicate the many applications that now rely on it.
