The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Initial Training Network on Perceptually Optimised Video Compression, called PROVISION, is a collaborative network between academic and industrial partners within the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission. Its key aim is to deliver technical advances well beyond the capabilities of current video compression standards, focusing on human visual perception for the future of video compression. This paper gives an overview of the PROVISION project, including the challenges that motivated its creation, the related scientific work supporting the project and its main objectives. Examples of some specific research topics addressed in the context of the project are also presented.
