To the best of our knowledge, there is no benchmark available in the industry that is suitable for comparison of video encoding solutions in terms of performance, power, quality, and amount of compression. However, there is a well-known academic effort carried out by Moscow State University (MSU) to compare available codecs. This academic analysis is able to rank various software-based and/or hardware-accelerated encoder implementations in terms of objective quality measures. Obviously, it is possible to tune the parameters of an encoder to achieve higher coding efficiency, higher performance, or lower power use, resulting ...
