Collocations

  • Following the WTSA-12 mandate to coordinate its studies with ITU-T SG 9, collocated meetings of both study groups were held in the week of 14-18 January 2013. Opening plenaries of each group were staggered so delegates could attend both meetings. A joint plenary session was held on Wed 16 January (report: here).
  •  ITU-T SG 16 also hosted the Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC) and the Joint Collaborative Team on 3D Video Coding (JCT-3V), as part of its ongoing collaboration with ISO/IEC JTC 1 / SC 29 / WG 11 (MPEG) for the development of the next generation of video coding. The JCT-VC & JCT-3V had a combined 309 registered participants and reviewed over 700 documents in its 10 days of meeting.
  • Two demos were organized in parallel with the SG 16 meeting on the theme "Better quality of life using ITU-T Recommendations": one on the 1st week displayed a real-time implementation of H.265, technologies for smart cable (SG 9/FG SmartCable), ITU IPTV challenge, e-health, and mobile IPTV; and on the 2nd week, another focusing on IPTV and accessibility.
  • Additional meetings: ITU-T SG 16 met in parallel with IPTV-GSI in the 1st week and, in the 2nd week, MPEG, FG AVA and ITU-T SG 2. In the weekend, SG 16 hosted a meeting of the IEC TC100 High-level Ad hoc meeting with representatives of ITU-T SGs and ISO/IEC JTC1 SCs.

Dates of next SG 16 meeting and interim Working Party meetings

The next meeting of ITU-T SG 16 is scheduled for Geneva, Switzerland, 28 October – 8 November 2013. The meeting is expected be collocated in the first week with IPTV-GSI and ISO/IEC JTC1 SC29/ WG11 (known as MPEG), to facilitate joint work on video coding and on IPTV terminals. It is unclear whether SG 9 will collocate with SG 16 at this occasion.

No interim working party meetings are planned.

Question 5/16 had a successful meeting and progressed work on the three work items.  Seventeen contributions on requirements, architecture, audio/video parameters and potential future work items were presented and discussed.  Updated baseline text for F.TPS-Reqs, F.TPS-Arch and H.TPS-AV was prepared and accepted. Incoming LS statements were reviewed, and two outgoing LS statements were prepared.  The Question is planning on holding one interim Rapporteur meeting.

Question 6/16 summary

The primary goals for Question 6/16 at this meeting of SG 16 were to review the progress of Q6/16, JCT-VC, JCT-3V, and JPEG work, reach AAP Consent on the new HEVC video codec (Rec. H.265 | ISO/IEC 23008-2), on a revision to H.264, on an amendment to H.262, and on three JPEG amendments that have reached sufficient maturity (T.800 Amd.6, T.801 Amd.3 and T.808 Amd.5). The Question also considered maintenance needs and planed future work. A substantial portion of the image coding work of Question 6/16 has been conducted jointly with ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29/WG 1 (JPEG/JBIG). A substantial portion of the video coding work of Question 6/16 is currently being conducted jointly with ISO/IEC JTC 1/ SC 29/WG 11 (MPEG) in two organizations, known as the Joint Collaborative Team (JCT) on Video Coding (JCT-VC) and the Joint Collaborative Team (JCT) on 3D Video Coding (JCT-3V). Meetings of the JCT-VC and JCT-3V were held in a collocated fashion with this meeting of SG 16 under its auspices. The JCT-VC is tasked with development of a new video coding Recommendation known as High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC). The JCT-3V is tasked with development of 3D video coding extensions. A meeting of MPEG was also held nearby during the current meeting of SG 16. Q6/16 is planning to hold two Rapporteur meetings, two JCT-VC meetings, and two JCT-3V meetings before the next SG 16 meeting in October 2013 and also to hold a meeting of the JCT-VC and of the JCT-3V in a collocated fashion with the next SG 16 meeting in October 2013 under its auspices. The Questions prepared nine outgoing Liaison Statements.
