This paper discusses the feasibility of High Definition H.264/AVC video coding in the Baseline profile, for real time applications like videoconferencing. By means of suited SKIP strategies and exploiting the higher resolution, redundancy and visual information amount of the High Definition formats, with respect to Standard Definition, it is possible to speed up significantly the Mode Decision procedure, without affecting the final perceived quality.
