Dirac 1.0.2 Description:
Dirac is a video codec that provides general-purpose video compression and decompression tools comparable with state-of-the-art systems. Dirac video codec is available for distribution under the MPL version 1.1 software license. Dirac is an open source video codec. It uses a traditional hybrid video codec architecture, but with the wavelet transform instead of the usual block transforms. Motion compensation uses overlapped blocks to reduce block artefacts that would upset the transform coding stage.
