After the profound success of defining H.264/AVC video coding standard in 2002, ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) started a Next-generation Video Coding (NGVC) project. The original target is to achieve 50% bit rate reduction at about the same video quality. In the past a few years, researchers have been very actively searching for new or improved technologies that can achieve this goal. After several years' struggle, in January 2010, the ISO/IEC Motion Picture Expert Group (MPEG) and VCEG jointly issued a call-forproposal for the "High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC)". At the April VCEG/MPEG meeting, 27 proposals were evaluated and the results seem to be promising. Consequently, a "new" video standard may be defined in two years. We will present a limited and maybe biased view on this subject.
