Thor (video codec)

Thor is a royalty free video codec under development by Cisco Systems. The specifications of Thor were available in various Internet-Drafts.[1]

On July 22, 2015, Thor was presented to the IETF as a candidate for their NETVC video standard.[2] Thor uses some Cisco elements that are also used by HEVC.[3] As part of the NETVC work, the Constrained Low-Pass Filter (CLPF) and motion compensation techniques used in Thor were tested in conjunction with the lapped transform coding techniques from the Daala codec.[4]
