Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the Canadian Advisory Committee (CAC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC TR 14496-9-05 (adoption of ISO/IEC TR 14496-9:2004). At the time of publication, ISO/IEC TR 14496-9:2009 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This Standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This part of ISO/IEC 14496 specifies descriptions of the main video coding tools in hardware description language (HDL) form. Such alternative descriptions to the ones that are reported in ISO/IEC 14496-2, ISO/IEC 14496-5 and ISO/IEC TR 14496-7 correspond to the need of providing the public with conformant
standard descriptions that are closer to the starting point of the development of codec implementations than textual descriptions or pure software descriptions. This part of ISO/IEC 14496 contains conformant descriptions of video tools that have been validated within the recommendation ISO/IEC TR 14496-7.
