Study on Video Compression Using Motion Compensation

S. Amutha


Video compression is the process of encoding a video file in such a way that it consumes less space than the original file and is easier to transmit over the network/internet. It is a type of compression technique that reduces the size of video file formats by eliminating redundant and non- functional data from the original video file. A video clip contains a series of still images (frames). Hence, to compress a video clips we can directly apply still image compression on each of these frames. In fact, this is the technique used by the “motion JPEG” standard.
