Multiview Video Coding (MVC) enables the construction of bitstreams that represent more than one view of a video scene.
One example of this functionality is stereoscopic 3D video coding. Two profiles were developed in the MVC work:
- Multiview High Profile supports an arbitrary number of views
- Stereo High Profile is designed specifically for two-view stereoscopic video. The Multiview Video Coding extensions were completed in November 2009.
