VLSI Architectures for Future Video Coding
This book addresses future video coding from the perspective of hardware implementation and architecture design, with particular focus on approximate computing and the energy-quality scalability paradigm. Challenges in deploying VLSI architectures for video coding are identified and potential solutions postulated with reference to recent research in the field. The book offers systematic coverage of the designs, techniques and paradigms that will most likely be exploited in the design of VLSI architectures for future video coding systems.
Written by a team of expert authors from around the world, and brought together by an editor who is a recognised authority in the field, this book is a useful resource for academics and industry professionals working on VLSI implementation of video codecs.
