During the past two decades, algorithmic solutions for efficient video coding have evolved rapidly. The main goal for developers was to retain low distortions while keeping the bitrate at a very low level. Consequently, algorithms got more and more complex such that the complexity and the energy consumption of typical video coders increased dramatically.

In this thesis, the energy consumption of different codecs shall be examined. The main focus should be placed on decoders, where the rate and the distortion should also be considered for comparison purposes. To this end, a suitable set of test sequences shall be encoded and measured for their respective energy consumption such that results are comparable.
