SPIRIT VP8 codec implements open and royalty free video compression standard owned by Google. It provides high-quality video encoding and decoding for real-time video transmission applications. VP8 fits in low bandwidth requirements cause the codec was specifically designed to operate mainly in a quality range from “watchable video” (~30dB in the PSNR metric) to “visually lossless” (~45dB).In comparison to AVC/H.264, VP8 offers about the same level of video quality at the same bit rate. VP8 handles the image format used by the vast majority of web videos and can be determined as “web video format codec”. SPIRIT VP8 is deeply optimized for real-time image compression on PC and ARM platforms and can be ported to other platforms.
