Coding efficiency gains in the new High Efficiency Video Coding (H.265/HEVC) video coding standard are achieved by improving many aspects of the traditional hybrid coding framework. Motion compensated prediction, and in particular the interpolation filter, is one area that was improved significantly over H.264/AVC. This paper presents the details of the… (More)
Entropy coding is the main important part of all advanced video compression schemes. Context-adaptive binary arithmetic coding (CABAC) is entropy coding used in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC and H.265/HEVC standards. Probability estimation is the key factor of CABAC performance efficiency. In this paper high accuracy probability estimation for CABAC is presented. This… (More)
To improve video coding efficiency, the Rotational Transform (ROT) was proposed for adaptive switching between different transforms cores. The Karhunen Loeve Transform (KLT) is known to be optimal for given residual but requires much side information to be signaled to the decoder. The Discrete Cosine transform (DCT) is known to be close to optimal but for… (More)
Paper presents theoretical explanation for bi-directional optical flow technique in generic case. Both non-equal distance to reference frames and two reference frames from the same side of predicted frame are allowed. Dynamic range analysis during bi-directional optical flow calculations is provided. Limits for refinement motion vector are recommended.
Inter-layer filtering is a key module of the emerging Scalable Extension of High Efficiency Video Coding Standard (SHVC). In SHVC, up-sampled based layer reconstructed pictures are used as inter-layer references to predict enhancement layer frames such that inter-layer redundancy is reduced. To improve the coding performance of inter-layer filtering, luma… (More)
