MVC and SVC are part (Annexes) of Recommendation ITU-T H.264. The Recommendation page contains the needed specification to study and implement ITU-T H.264. Access to the PDF version of the published text is free of charge.
For testing one should look into two accompanying Recommendations:
- ITU-T H.264.1 that contains the latest approved version of conformance verification spec; and
- ITU-T H.264.2 that contains latest approved version of the reference code.
