Executive Summary

Following were the main goals of the project. To benchmark the shortcomings of existing video codec’s in meeting the customers expectation due to limited energy resources of the portable and mobile devices To research on and develop (a proof-of-concept) low power and power-aware video codec for battery operated mobile and portable devices which can yield a longer battery life and is adaptive to the varying battery power level. Project partially achieved some of the desired goals and was terminated.
