HD-VideoBench is a benchmark devoted to High Definition (HD) digital video processing. It includes a set of video coders and decoders (Codecs) for the MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and H.264/AVC video coding standards. The applications were carefully selected taken into account the quality and portability of the code, the representativeness of the video application domain, the availability of high performance optimizations and the distribution under a free license. Additionally, HD-VideoBench defines a set of input sequences and configuration parameters of the video Codecs which are appropriate for the HD video domain.
