Overview of Screen Content Coding in Recently Developed Video Coding Standards

Xiaozhong Xu, Shan Liu

In recent years, screen content (SC) video including computer generated text, graphics and animations, have drawn more attention than ever, as many related applications become very popular. To address the need for efficient coding of such contents, a number of coding tools have been specifically developed and achieved great advances in terms of coding efficiency. The inclusion of screen content coding (SCC) features in all the recently developed video coding standards (namely, HEVC SCC, VVC, AVS3, AV1 and EVC) demonstrated the importance of supporting such features. This paper provides an overview and comparative study of screen content coding technologies, with discussions on the performance and complexity aspects for the tools developed in these standards.
