On the data reuse and memory bandwidth analysis for full-search block-matching VLSI architecture
This work explores the data reuse properties of full-search block-matching for motion estimation (ME) and associated architecture designs, as well as memory bandwidth requirements, and a seven-type classification system is developed that can accommodate most published ME architectures.
Algorithm and Architecture of Disparity Estimation With Mini-Census Adaptive Support Weight
A high-performance hardware-friendly disparity estimation algorithm called mini-census adaptive support weight (MCADSW) is proposed and its corresponding real-time very large scale integration (VLSI) architecture is proposed.
Fast Motion Estimation Algorithm and Design for Real Time QFHD High Efficiency Video Coding
A predictive integer ME (IME) algorithm that selects the most probable search directions and steps through a statistical analysis to reduce the number of search points is proposed and an early motion vector prediction candidate approach is proposed.
A Hardware-Efficient H.264/AVC Motion-Estimation Design for High-Definition Video
A low-latency and hardware-efficient ME design with three design techniques that adopts parallel instead of serial multiresolution search, and applies a mode-filtering approach to further reduce the bandwidth and cycles and share the buffer of IME and FME.
