Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Although research on video compression started long time ago, the volume induced by new video applications (e-teaching, telemedicine, Internet TV, and so on) create new challenges for video coding. Statistics show that 5 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every second, while Facebook serves daily 100 millions of video hours. Although impressive, such figures are small if compared with the data collected by surveillance cameras: more than 2 billion of video hours per minute. Such a massive volume of data requires compression algorithms that are both efficient (in terms of compression ratio) and fast, two characteristics that are usually considered incompatible. The development of video coding algorithms that are suitable for such large scale applications is the objective of the research in Large Scale Video Coding (LSVC). Besides searching for fast implementation of high efficiency video coding standard (HEVC), research in LSVC tries also to leverage the existence of near-duplicate videos (NDVs) in large video collections, an approach that, albeit in its infancy, seems promising.

The aim of this special issue is to collect new results in the field of LSVC, bringing together the leading researchers in the field.

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. Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1000 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.
