General banding can be caused by coarse quantization of grey scale value or color values and typically gives a “false contour” effect in a smooth. IN addition, such “false contour” may be affected by various codec compression standards to become more “square mosaic” like, i.e. codec banding.
Simplest Implementation for 8-Bit Input
Source with Banding Noise
Noise Shaping can be optimally controlled and applied just before display out.
Flexibility in Video pipe precision and Display out precision.
Video Pipe may still be allowed to operate at minimum 8-bit precision
