Dirac is a general-purpose video codec aimed at resolutions from QCIF (176x144) 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. MediaCoder 0.6.0.3690 has included Dirac video encoder 0.7.0. Changes of Dirac 0.7.0
  • Added support for Constant Bit Rate Coding.
  • Improved quality of encoded pictures at low bit-rates and
  • Improved motion vector data partitioning to allow for
