Daala

The code name for a video codec developed by the Mozilla and Xiph.Org foundations. The Daala project decoded its first video streams in 2013, and elements of Daala are incorporated into the IETF Internet Video Codec (see AV1).



AV1

(AOMedia Video 1) A video codec from the Alliance for Open Media (AOMedia). The Alliance was formed in 2015, and the first release of AV1 is expected in 2018. AV1 was designed to supersede the VP9 codec and become the IETF Internet Video Codec (NETVC) standard. Elements from Cisco's Thor codec and the Xiph.Org Foundation's Daala codec are also included. In contrast to HEVC/H.265, which is AV1's primary competition, AV1 is entirely royalty free, and AV1 features are carefully examined for patent infringement. See video codec and codec examples.
