Screen content refers to images or videos generated by various electronic devices such as computers or mobile phones, whereas natural content refers to images captured by cameras. Screen contents show different statistical characteristics from natural images, so the conventional video codecs which were developed mainly for the coding of natural videos cannot guarantee good coding performances for screen contents. Recently, researches on efficient SCC(Screen Content Coding) are being actively studied, and especially at ongoing JCT-VC(Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding) meeting for HEVC(High Efficiency Video Coding) standard, SCC issues are being discussed steadily. In this paper, we analyze the performances of high efficient coding tools in HM(HEVC Test Model) on SCC, and present an optimized SCC model based on the analysis results. We also present the characteristics of screen contents and the future research issues as well.
