Benjamin Bross is a project manager at the Image Processing department of the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications - Heinrich Hertz Institute, Berlin.
He received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering from RWTH University Aachen, Germany in 2008. During his studies he was working on three-dimensional image registration in medical imaging and on decoder side motion vector derivation in H.264/AVC. His research interests include motion estimation/prediction, residual coding and fast encoding techniques.
Since the development of the new High Efficiency Video Coding standard, H.265/HEVC, has started in 2010, he has been very active in the standardization process as a technical contributor and coordinator of core experiments. In July 2012, he was appointed as co-chair of the editing ad hoc group and became the chief editor of the H.265/HEVC video coding standard. At the Heinrich Hertz Institute, he is currently responsible for the development of H.265/HEVC conform real-time encoders and decoders.
