Video Compression Standardization and Immersive Media Experiences
Jill M. Boyce, Intel Fellow and Chief Media Architect
Video compression standards enable applications that we use every day, such as broadcast television, online video streaming, and videoconferencing. A brief tutorial will be presented on the technology used in international video coding standards, including MPEG AVC/H.264, HEVC, and the upcoming VVC. Updates will also be provided on the latest standardization activities to enable immersive media, which enable an immersive experience with 6 degrees of freedom of movement with support for motion parallax.
Jill M. Boyce is Intel Fellow and Chief Media Architect at Intel, responsible for defining media architectures for Intel’s video hardware designs. She represents Intel at the Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC) and Joint Video Exploration Team (JVET) of ITU-T SG16 and ISO/IEC MPEG, and in the Alliance for Open Media. She serves as Associate Rapporteur of ITU-T VCEG (Study Group 16 Question 6), is an editor of the MPEG-I Immersive Video draft standard, and was an editor of the Scalability High Efficiency Video Coding extension (SHVC). She was named an IEEE Fellow in 2019 “for contributions to video coding.”
She received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Kansas in 1988 and an M.S.E. in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in 1990. She was formerly Director of Algorithms at Vidyo, Inc. where she led video and audio coding and processing algorithm development. She was formerly VP of Research and Innovation Princeton for Technicolor, formerly Thomson. She was formerly with Lucent Technologies Bell Labs, AT&T Labs, and Hitachi America. She was Associate Editor from 2006 to 2010 of IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology. She is the inventor of more than 150 granted U.S. patents, and has published more than 40 papers in peer-reviewed conferences and journals
