Nowadays, H.264 or Advance Video Coding (AVC) is the most widely used video compression standard for High Definition (HD) video coding in general, and for 3D HD in particular, for which its Multiview Video Coding (MVC) extension is used. However, in April 2015 the 3rd edition of the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard was completed with four important extensions. One of them, Scalable HEVC (SHVC), is a powerful tool when dealing with either changing network conditions or devices with different capabilities since video sequences encoded with this extension of the HEVC standard can easily be adapted to the changing requirements. This new scalability allows the base and the enhancement layers to be encoded in different standards. This is usually implemented by combining an H.264/AVC stream for the base layer and HEVC streams for the other layers.
