    you forgot the:
    Sonic HD H264 high profile codec (already in limited use)
    Envivio, Inc H264
    DiviCom MV 100 (Harmonic)


    but looks great --

    I thought this link:


    http://www.balooga.com/mpeg4.php3

    about "A comparison of the encoding efficiencies of the MPEG2, MPEG4-2 and h.264 / MPEG4-10 (MPEG4 part 10) video compression algorithms"
    might be of interest.

    And possibly IBM's MPEG4-codecs:

    Thanks! Envivio & DiviCom - exists, for Sonic I found only press release:

    Is any detailed information available?

    There is no H.264 codecs there, but thanks anyway!

    I saw it at show and requested more info -- I was told that one studio is already in production with it and general release in july 2005, it will be sold like scenarist often is - i.e. a workstation , but the encoder was software based.

    wavelet compression like quVis quBit D-Cinema compression would be interesting compare against H264 , I have used it a lot for d-cinema server compression.

    Ok! I mention it in list.

    wavelet compression like quVis quBit D-Cinema compression would be interesting compare against H264 , I have used it a lot for d-cinema server compression.
    Previous comparison was with DivX (good reference point). I think next will be with DivX too.
    We plan special testing for non standard codecs, but I cannot point to date.
