ABSTRACT
The emerging ITU-T H.264 video coding standard has
been developed to achieve significant improvements over
the existing standards in the compression performance. Al-
though the basic coding framework of the standard is similar
to that of the existing standards, H.264 introduces many new
features. The standard is close to completion, and prelim-
inary tests were reported to give satisfactory results, how-
ever the developing standard requires further tests for con-
formance. In this paper, we provide an independent analysis
of the coding performance improvement of H.264 over vari-
ous other existing standards. Our experiments demonstrated
that the future H.264 standard can achieve 50% coding gain
over MPEG-2, 47% coding gain over H.263 baseline, and
