Abstract: This paper presents the architecture and the VHDL design of a Two Dimensional Discrete Cosine Transform (2-D DCT) for JPEG image compression. This architecture is used as the core of a JPEG compressor and is the critical path in JPEG compression hardware. The 2-D DCT calculation is made using the 2-D DCT separability property, such that the whole(More)
The High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is an emerging standard that achieves higher encoding efficiency when compared to previous standards such as H.264/AVC. One key contributor to this improvement is the new intra prediction method that supports a large number of prediction directions at a cost of very high computational complexity. This paper presents a(More)
— The emerging High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard is expected to require much more processing power than its predecessors due to the higher algorithmic complexity of new coding tools and associated data structures. This paper proposes a novel complexity control method for the near future HEVC encoders running on power-constrained devices. The(More)
The emerging HEVC standard introduces a number of tools which increase compression efficiency in comparison to its predecessors at the cost of greater computational complexity. This paper proposes a complexity control method for HEVC encoders based on dynamic adjustment of the newly proposed coding tree structures. The method improves a previous solution by(More)
Managing the complexity of the emerging HEVC standard is a matter of academic and industrial research since its earlier versions. The sophisticated and computation-intensive tools involved in the encoding process must be leveraged if real-time applications are considered. In this paper, we propose a workload management scheme for dynamically controlling the(More)
The high efficiency video coding (HEVC) standard achieves improved compression efficiency in comparison to previous standards at the cost of much higher computational complexity and consequently longer processing times, which may compromise real-time software-based video encoding, especially at high resolutions. This article addresses the problem of(More)
