4EVER, for Enhanced Video ExpeRience
France Telecom Orange
4EVER (for Enhanced Video ExpeRience) is designed to offer a better quality of video Experience for the spectator and democratize access to content audiovisual premium, for all people and in any situation (houses, mobile, contained alternative cinemas). This project is set around 2 main themes of R&D:
The main results from 4EVER will be prototype HEVC codecs and contributions to the definition of the UHD format. This will both require subjective assessments to validate the gain made by HEVC to qualify the gain made by the UHD vs. the HD.
In addition to the scientific and technical collaborations, the 9 partners of the consortium will regularly validate the advances of the field work. They will implement end-to-end channels for recordings/releases from HD and UHD content, developed from prototype HEVC codecs. The balance sheets of these operations will help adjust the remaining R&D work to realize the project.
