An orthogonal approximation for the 8-point discrete cosine transform (DCT) is introduced. The proposed transformation matrix contains only zeros and ones; multiplications and bit-shift operations are absent. Close spectral behavior relative to the DCT was adopted as design criterion. The proposed algorithm is superior to the signed discrete cosine(More)
Images obtained with coherent illumination, as is the case of sonar, ultrasound-B, laser and Synthetic Aperture Radar – SAR, are affected by speckle noise which reduces the ability to extract information from the data. Specialized techniques are required to deal with such imagery, which has been modeled by the G distribution and under which regions with(More)
Video processing systems such as HEVC requiring low energy consumption needed for the multimedia market has lead to extensive development in fast algorithms for the efficient approximation of 2-D DCT transforms. The DCT is employed in a multitude of compression standards due to its remarkable energy compaction properties. Multiplier-free approximate DCT(More)
A low-complexity 8-point orthogonal approximate DCT is introduced. The proposed transform requires no multiplications or bit-shift operations. The derived fast algorithm requires only 14 additions, less than any existing DCT approximation. Moreover, in several image compression scenarios, the proposed transform could outperform the well-known signed DCT, as(More)
The discrete cosine transform (DCT) is the key step in many image and video coding standards. The 8-point DCT is an important special case, possessing several low-complexity approximations widely investigated. However, 16-point DCT transform has energy compaction advantages. In this sense, this paper presents a new 16-point DCT approximation with null(More)
Two multiplierless algorithms are proposed for 4×4 approximate-DCT for transform coding in digital video. Computational architectures for 1-D/2-D realisations are implemented using Xilinx FPGA devices. CMOS synthesis at the 45 nm node indicate real-time operation at 1 GHz yielding 4×4 block rates of 125 MHz at less than 120 mW of dynamic power consumption.
A low-complexity orthogonal multiplierless approximation for the 16-point discrete cosine transform (DCT) was introduced. The proposed method was designed to possess a very low computational cost. A fast algorithm based on matrix factorization was proposed requiring only 60 additions. The proposed architecture outperforms classical and state-of-the-art(More)
