VCA v2.0 released!

Another Valentine’s day, another gift from ATHENA! We are delighted to share Video Complexity Analyzer (VCA) version 2.0. The new release brings add-on benefits over our previous release, v1.5, like supporting analysis of High Dynamic Range (HDR) videos. The version is faster, courtesy of the low-pass DCT optimizations. We expect this release of VCA facilitates research on content-adaptive encoding, video quality assessment, and other research topics more than ever.

A command-line executable is provided to facilitate testing and development. VCA is available as an open-source library published under the GPLv3 license. For more details, please visit the online software documentation here. The source code can be found here.
