This one-day course provides an introduction to the VESA DSC v1.1 video compression standard. The course begins with an introduction to the basics of the underlying structure of DSC video algorithms and evolves to explore DSC applications, usage models, system architecture and implementation challenges for DSC encoder and decoder designs. The course concludes with an overview of the resources available at VESA, as well as considerations and practical recommendations on how to design a product compatible with the VESA DSC v1.1 video compression standard.
