    This paper presents a new affine-based algorithm and SIMD architecture for video compression with low bit rate applications. The proposed algorithm is used for mesh-based motion estimation and it is named mesh-based square-matching algorithm (MB-SMA). The MB-SMA is a simplified version of the hexagonal matching algorithm [1]. In this algorithm, right-angled triangular mesh is used to benefit from ... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a high-performance direct two-dimensional transform coding IP design for MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video coding standard. Because four kinds of 4 × 4 transforms, i.e., forward, inverse, forward-Hadamard, and inverse-Hadamard transforms are required in a H.264 encoding system, a high-performance multitransform accelerator is inevitable to compute these transforms simultaneously for...

  • Adaptive interpolation filters and high-resolution displacements for video coding

    Standardized hybrid video coding systems are based on motion compensated prediction with fractional-pel displacement vector resolution. In the recent video coding standard H.264/AVC, a displacement vector resolution of 1/4-pel is applied. In order to estimate and compensate these fractional-pel displacements, interpolation filters are used. So far, these interpolation filters are invariant. The sa... View full abstract»

  • Enabling arbitrary rotational camera motion using multisprites with minimum coding cost

    Object-oriented coding in the MPEG-4 standard enables the separate processing of foreground objects and the scene background (sprite). Since the background sprite only has to be sent once, transmission bandwidth can be saved. We have found that the counter-intuitive approach of splitting the background into several independent parts can reduce the overall amount of data. Furthermore, we show that ... View full abstract»

  • Analysis and complexity reduction of multiple reference frames motion estimation in H.264/AVC

    In the new video coding standard H.264/AVC, motion estimation (ME) is allowed to search multiple reference frames. Therefore, the required computation is highly increased, and it is in proportion to the number of searched reference frames. However, the reduction in prediction residues is mostly dependent on the nature of sequences, not on the number of searched frames. Sometimes the prediction res... View full abstract»

  • Transform domain transcoding from MPEG-2 to H.264 with interpolation drift-error compensation

    With the increasingly extensive applications of the new emerging video coding standard H.264, it inspires an urgent need to transcode the widely available MPEG-2 compressed video to H.264 format. In this paper, we investigate the issues on transcoding MPEG-2 into H.264 in transform domain with consideration of drift error due to the mismatch of motion compensation, and propose a transform domain s...

  • Statistical model, analysis and approximation of rate-distortion function in MPEG-4 FGS videos

    In this paper, the generalized Gaussian distribution is employed first to model the DCT coefficients of image data from MPEG-4 fine-granularity scalability (FGS) frame. Then, according to the quantization theory, the distortion-rate function of the generalized Gaussian model is analyzed and it is concluded that the derivative of the distortion-rate function first decreases, and then increases up t...

  • The realization of arbitrary downsizing video transcoding

    In order to transmit the precoded bit stream through bandwidth constrained network, transcoding technique has been introduced to reduce the overall bit rate generated. Downsizing transcoding is one of the commonly used methods since it can reach very low bit rate without losing any motion information. Many efforts have been devoted to this research area. With the proposal of arbitrary downsizing, ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a novel efficient prediction algorithm to reduce redundant discrete cosine transform (DCT) and quantization computations for H.264 encoding optimization. A theoretical analysis is performed to study the sufficient condition for DCT coefficients to be quantized to zeros. As a result, three sufficient conditions corresponding to three types of transform and quantization methods i... View full abstract»

  • Level C+ data reuse scheme for motion estimation with corresponding coding orders

    The memory bandwidth reduction for motion estimation is important because of the power consumption and limited memory bandwidth in video coding systems. In this paper, we propose a Level C+ scheme which can fully reuse the overlapped searching region in the horizontal direction and partially reuse the overlapped searching region in the vertical direction to save more memory bandwidth compared to t...
