LEAD H.264 Standard Video Encoder is a state of the art DirectShow filter for compressing and decompressing video data using H.264/AVC standard (ISO/IEC 14496-10). H.264 is the latest and most advanced video standard developed jointly by ITU and MPEG. H.264/AVC provides a far more efficient Algorithm for compressing video than any other compression method available. It typically outperforms all existing standards by a Factor of three to four especially in comparison to MPEG-2.

* H.264 Standard Encoder includes the LEAD AAC Encoder, ISO Multiplexer, OGG Multiplexer, LEAD Video RGB Converter, LEAD Video YUV Converter and the LEAD Vorbis Encoder. * H.264 High-Definition Decoder includes the LEAD AAC Decoder, H.264 Decoder, H.264 Decoder (DMO), ISO Demultiplexer, OGG Splitter, LEAD MPEG-2 Program Demultiplexer, LEAD Video RGB converter and LEAD Vorbis Decoder. * The H.264 Decoder can play high definition format 720p and 1080i in real time. * User definable motion estimation settings controls the balance Between encoder speed and quality. * Multiple reference frames of any combination of past and future frames, provides precise interprediction as well as improved robustness during packet loss while streaming over the network or Internet. * Unrestricted motion search uses reference frames that may be partly outside the Frame improving network performance by predicting missing data. * Only the difference between motion vectors is saved, increasing the compression ratio. * Intraprediction may be performed either on 4x4 blocks or 16x16. * Motion vector prediction is performed before the frame is prepared for compression (pre-DCT) improving prediction and compression performance. * Computation is more efficient because LEAD implements the traditional Discrete Co
