Here’s what people are saying about the book


This book is a useful guide for non-video experts to gain a quick understanding on existing implementations around digital video compression.  It contains sufficient technical details for practitioners in the field to help anyone who wish to look beneath the covers of what happens when video is compressed.

- Indra Laksono, President of Pixelworks Canada


Decode to Encode allows anyone to grasp video compression concepts. Avinash a codec engineer at NGCodec does a great job of starting at the basics, but then continuing into all the complexity for engineers to absorb.

- Oliver Gunasekara CEO & Co-founder of NGCodec.


With this book, much of the vocabulary I’d hear around the office started to make sense and I got a better understanding of what encoders do and how they are designed
