Dirac Open Source Video Codec Home

Dirac is a general-purpose video codec aimed at resolutions from QCIF (180x144) to HDTV (1920x1080), progressive or interlaced. It uses wavelets, motion compensation and arithmetic coding, and aims to be competitive with other state-of-the-art codecs. The Open Source implementation provides a C++ library with an encoder and decoder.
