MPEG-5 Essential Video Coding (EVC) is a new video compression standard, proposed by such companies as Samsung, Huawei and Qualcomm.
Solveig Multimedia implemented a first EVC decoding software capable of real-time EVC decoding. The software is available for Windows and Android (based on the Huawei P40Pro mobile). More details on the first stage of the implementation of mobile real-time EVC Player can be found here.
The second stage of the development was targeted to the decoder improvements to make it capable of decoding files encoded with more EVC-scpecific tools enabled and lower QP values. Here you can find the detailed description on the second stage improvements.
