—The 3D video extension of HEVC (3D-HEVC) exploits texture-depth redundancies in 3D videos using inter-component coding tools. It also inherits the same quadtree coding structure as HEVC, for both components. The current software implementation of 3D-HEVC includes encoder shortcuts that speed-up the quadtree construction process, but those are always(More)
—Multiview video plus depths formats use view synthesis to build intermediate views from existing adjacent views at the receiver side. Traditional view synthesis exploits the disparity information to interpolate an intermediate view by taking into account interview correlations. However, temporal correlation between different frames of the intermediate view(More)
View synthesis received increasing attention over the last years, as it offers a wide range of practical applications like Free Viewpoint Television, 3D video, video gaming, etc. The main issues in view synthesis are the filling of disoccluded areas and the warping of real views. In this paper we propose a new hole filling method, it uses temporal(More)
Following the finalization of the state-of-the-art High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard in January 2013, several new services are being deployed in order to take advantage of the superior coding efficiency (estimated at 50 % less bitrate for the same visual quality) that this standard provides over its predecessor: H.264 / Advanced Video Coding(More)
The High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard enables meeting new video quality demands such as Ultra High Definition (UHD). Its scalable extension (SHVC) allows encoding simultaneously different representations of a video, organised in layers. Thanks to inter-layer predictions, SHVC provides bit-rate savings compared to the equivalent HEVC simulcast(More)
The up-and-coming extension of HEVC for 3D video (3D-HEVC) includes various tools to exploit different redundancies in a 3D video signal. Inter-view redundancies are in particular exploited using Inter-View Motion Prediction (IVMP) and Inter-View Residual Prediction (IVRP). Both of these tools compensate disparity-wise the current prediction unit (PU) in(More)
A test model for an HEVC-based 3D video coding standard (3D-HEVC) has recently been drafted. 3D-HEVC exploits inter-view redundancies by including disparity-compensated prediction (DCP) for efficient dependent view coding. It also uses the Merge coding mode to reduce the cost of motion / disparity parameters. However, the candidates in the Merge list are(More)
In this paper we present a real-time streaming demonstration with a multi-layer architecture of a pipelined software High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) encoders with inter-layer prediction enabling Scalable HEVC (SHVC) encodings. This SHVC encoder is implemented on an innovative platform performing real-time encodings that already demonstrated promising(More)
