Quotes

...According to news reporting from Bologna, Italy , by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "A general framework is provided that makes possible the estimation of time-dependent properties of a stochastic system moving far from equilibrium. The process is investigated and discussed in general terms of nonequilibrium thermodynamics."
"Because the current block is predicted using adjacent reconstructed blocks, the prediction is better when the pixels in the current block are highly-correlated to the pixels in the adjacent reconstructed blocks. The prediction process in video coders such as H 264/MPEG-4 AVC and HEVC are optimized to work best when pixels or averaged pixels from the reconstructed block above and to the left can be directionally propagated to the current block. The propagated pixels become the prediction block. However, this prediction fails to perform well when the characteristics of the current block differ greatly from those used for prediction."
