Our recently proposed wavelet-based L-infinite-constrained coding approach for meshes ensures that the maximum error between the vertex positions in the original and decoded meshes is guaranteed to be lower than a given upper bound. Instantiations of both L-2 and L-infinite coding approaches are demonstrated for MESHGRID, which is a scalable 3D object encoding system, part of MPEG-4 AFX. In this survey paper, we compare the novel L-infinite distortion estimator against the L-2 distortion estimator which is typically employed in 3D mesh coding systems. In addition, we show that, under certain conditions, the L-infinite estimator can be exploited to approximate the Hausdorff distance in real-time implementations.
