IEEE Audio Video Coding Working Group (1857 WG)

Overview of IEEE 1857 WG

IEEE 1857 working group was established in 2012. It is sponsored by IEEE Data Compression Standards Committee (C/DCSC) under IEEE Computer Society. The Working Group is charted to create and maintain 1857 series standards to provide regular high quality and efficient coding tool sets for compression, decompression, processing, and representing of multimedia data. We are working to save bandwidth for transmission, save space for storage, speed up indexing and multimedia search and enhance performance when using mixed media for virtual reality and any other applications that demand high bandwidth.
