Subject: Beyond VVC, new video coding tools and standardization.
The COVID-19 crisis once more showed how dependent are our societies on digital video broadcast. An industry which is itself highly restricted by the bandwidth for distribution of a tremendous amount of video over different transportation means (Terrestrial, Satellite, Internet, mobile). This increase in video consumption leads to a massive usage of computational resources in datacenters. This has two principal impacts. First, the encoding costs for service providers and broadcasters grow, since they’re often charged on a CPU/Bandwidth-usage basis. Second, the increase in energy consumption and its impact on the environment are more important.
In July 2020, H.266 / Versatile Video Coding (VVC) was released by ITU-T, as the next generation video compression standard. Still, even with quick VVC adoption, the impact of video consumption will remain a concern. Exploration for improvements over VVC has already started. The goal of the internship is to follow the exploration beyond VVC, to propose and to test new coding tools. A focus will be set on the decoder side intra mode derivation (DIMD) coding tool which is already a candidate for future adoption.
This internship will consist of following phases:
1) Study VVC and the current explorations from JVET (AHG12).
2) Select and evaluate promising coding tools
3) Propose algorithmic improvements when relevant
4) Write JVET contribution.
In all above phases, candidate will constantly interact with his/her colleagues to benefit from their knowledge and experience. Noteworthy of precising that, based on the profile of candidate, the internship orientation might be adjusted.
About the candidate:
- Last-year student of engineering school program or master’s in computer science or electrical engineering.
- Excellent C/C++ programming skills.
- Hand-on experience with neural networks and libraries such as TensorFlow, PyTorch etc.
- Ability to read and understand academic papers in the domain of image and video processing.
- Being familiar with video compression algorithms is a plus.
- Fluent in English.
The position is based in Rennes (35), teleworking possible
1500€ gross + Ticket restaurant + Reimbursement of transportation fees + possibility of recruitment (CDI) or CIFRE thesis.
