Abstract
H.264/AVC is a new specification for digital video coding that aims at a deployment in a lot of multimedia applications, such as video conferencing, digital television broadcasting, and internet streaming. This is for instance reflected by the design goals of the standard, which are about the provision of an efficient compression scheme and a network-friendly representation of the compressed data. Those requirements have resulted in a very flexible syntax and architecture that is fundamentally different from previous standards for video compression. In this paper, a detailed discussion will be provided on how to apply an extended version of the MPEG-21 Bitstream Syntax Description Language (MPEG-21 BSDL) to the Annex B syntax of the H.264/AVC specification. This XML based language will facilitate the high-level manipulation of an H.264/AVC bitstream in order to take into account the constraints and requirements of a particular usage environment. Our performance measurements and optimizations show that it is possible to make use of MPEG-21 BSDL in the context of the current H.264/AVC standard with a feasible computational complexity when exploiting temporal scalability.
