H.266/VVC How important it is to video ?

Chasing net drama 、 See blockbuster 、 studio “ Buy buy buy ”、 Video conference, etc , It truly reflects the way of life and work of modern young people, which is inseparable from a variety of video applications . Especially in the past year , Witnessed the once-in-a-century event of mankind , It has also witnessed the vigorous development of a variety of video applications , Therefore, the amount of video data carried by the network has witnessed a larger explosive growth .

How much video data ? You can take one per second 30 frame 、 A resolution of 720p Take your movie for example . If the movie is long 90 minute , So watch this movie without video compression , The bandwidth you need is at least 332Mbps, And storing this movie will consume 224GB, This is unbearable for any consumer .

So the video needs to be compressed 、 Coding can be transmitted and stored , This process is video coding . In order to make different video products and devices of different companies Interconnection , Video coding needs to be standardized . With the video coding standard as the standard that all manufacturers must follow , The video stream encoded by a video content provider can be decoded and played on mobile phones or TV devices of different manufacturers .

In order to cope with the explosive growth of video data generated by human society , The video coding standard is following its own “ Moore's law ” Continuous evolution .ITU-T and ISO/IEC MPEG The two major international video standards organizations will jointly launch a new generation of video coding standards every few years , The compression ratio is doubled compared with the previous generation .

near 30 Over the years , The video standards jointly formulated by the two video standards organizations have a far-reaching impact on the video industry , Triggered many technological changes and innovations in the video industry .

such as ,H.262/MPEG-2 The standard promotes the transformation from analog TV to digital TV ;H.264/AVC So that HD video and Internet video can be widely promoted ;H.265/HEVC Successfully promoted HDR and 4K Landing of Ultra HD video .

H.266/VVC standard These two standards organizations jointly launched Next generation flagship video standard .VVC Standard in 2020 year 7 Officially released in , comparison HEVC Standards can Reduce bandwidth costs by half . in addition ,VVC It can be used for live broadcast through adaptive bandwidth and resolution 、 on demand 、 Video conferencing and other streaming media and real-time communication provide better support , Improve users' real-time HD experience , and Empowerment is like AR/VR、HDR video 、360 Panoramic video 、 Screen content and Ultra HD 4K、8K etc. 5G Next emerging video applications .

The first edition Ali266 How to come ?

VVC Although the standard has strong compression efficiency , But push VVC Standard commercial , There is still a long way . This is because VVC The standard provides 30 A variety of the latest coding tools , How to reasonably select these coding tools and combinations for the encoder VVC High compression efficiency bonus , This requires a high computational power for the encoder .

That's why ,VVC The coding speed of the reference software platform is very slow , code 720p The speed of video can't even reach 0.01 fps. Even the world's first open source VVC Encoder , Although than VVC Reference software is much faster , But coding 720p The speed of video can only reach 10 fps about .

In order to solve this technical problem , Alibaba's video team is H.266/VVC Soon after the standard was released , I started to devote myself to VVC Development of software codec .

2020 year 12 month 30 Japan , stay H.266/VVC Standard officially released 5 After a month , Alibaba released a self-developed Mobile real-time decoder Ali266. Experimental proof , Integrate Ali266 Live video of 、 Short video and other applications , Only 2 Thread can play smoothly in real time on medium and low-end mobile phones 720p HD video , While greatly saving computing power consumption, it can benefit the whole scene of the mobile terminal , To a great extent VVC The usefulness of the standard .

At the completion of VVC After the release of the decoder , Alibaba cloud video cloud immediately invested in VVC Research and development of encoder , The goal is to develop a product that can be used according to different applications , Different gears are available , Capable of offline and real-time processing VVC Encoder , Dedicated to live broadcasting 、 Short video 、 Online meetings 、 Cloud games and other fields , Bring a better user experience .
