The rate control problem has been extensively studied in parallel to the development of the different video coding standards. The bit allocation via Cauchy-density-based ratedistortion (R-D) modeling of the discrete cosine transform (DCT) coefficients has proved to be one of the most accurate solutions at picture level. Nevertheless, in some specific(More)
In this paper, a novel rate control algorithm for real-time VBR hierarchical video coding is proposed. The algorithm works at two levels that are called long- and short-term levels. The long-term level aims at ensuring that the bit count does not exceed the maximum allowed amount for a few-second long window. To this end, it considers a sliding window(More)
The accuracy of the Cauchy probability density function for modeling of the discrete cosine transform coefficient distribution has already been proved for the frame layer of the rate control subsystem of a hybrid video coder. Nevertheless, in some specific applications operating in real-time low-delay environments, a basic unit layer is recommended in order(More)
