Technical Summary

This document provides guidance and procedures for testing video
codecs, to evaluate their quality and performance.  This document
is to be published as an Informational draft as it describes
methods for implementers of video codecs to compare against known
baselines for object and subject quality as well as measurements
for encoding/decoding performance.

Working Group Summary

The document has been reviewed both within the NETVC working group
and the Alliance for Open Media (AOMedia).  While there were no
comments at all during Working Group Last Call, the consensus is
demonstrated by the virtue that AOMedia uses this document to evaluate
the readiness of AV1 implementations.

Document Quality
