Special Issue "New Techniques for Image and Video Coding"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2021.
As reported by the Cisco Visual Networking Index (2017–22), IP video traffic represented 73% of the total IP traffic in 2016 and is expected to reach 82% by 2022. This means that a million minutes of video content travels through the network every second. The report also predicts a great increase in services such as Video on Demand (VoD), Live Internet video, as well as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). Due to the increasing number of consumers (4.8 billion internet users by 2022) and greater video resolution (4K and 8K), VoD traffic will double by 2022. There is also intense interest in the live video streaming of sports events, where 4K- and 5K-resolution cameras (more than 20) are installed around a stadium to transmit a 360° view of these events.
To address this increase in video IP traffic, a new generation of image compression and video coding techniques are required to achieve higher compression rates than the ones obtained by the previous image and video coding standards.
This Special Issue is intended to provide a forum for recent research in both image compression and video coding techniques that would have potential to further improve the performance of current image/video coding standards.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
