This is the public page of AI-Enhanced Video Coding (MPAI-EVC), an MPAI project for a video compression standard that substantially en­hances the performance of a traditional video codec (MPEG-5 EVC in this case) by improving or replacing traditional tools with AI-based tools.

MPAI is currently engaged in the MPAI-EVC Evidence Project seeking to demonstrate that extending or replacing tools can offer at least 25% performance improvement (see the latest progress report MPAI-EVC Evidence Project report and plan)

MPAI-EVC is at the level of Use Cases and Functional Requirements.
