A memory-efficient architecture design for de-blocking filter in H.264/AVC is presented. We use the novel data arrangement of Column-of-Pixel to facilitate the memory access and reuse the pixel value. Further, we propose a hybrid filter scheduling to improve the system throughput. As compared with some existing approaches of realizing de-blocking filter [1](More)
Motion compensation is always the main bottleneck in real-time or high quality video applications; thus, fast and efficient motion compensation is necessary. In this paper, a new motion compensation design is presented to overcome large calculation time of complicated motion vector prediction (MVP) algorithm and high motion resolution in H.264/AVC.

We design, implement, and evaluate an H.264/SVC decoder and an HTTP video streaming client on multi-core mobile devices. The decoder employs multiple decoder threads to leverage the multi-core CPUs, and the streaming server/client support adaptive HTTP video streaming. To evaluate the decoder performance, we conduct experiments using real H.264/SVC videos(More)
In this paper, we propose a 4x4-block level pipelining architecture with instantaneous switching scheme and optimal decoding ordering of H.264/AVC decoder. Compared with conventional H.264/AVC video decoders [1][2], which adopt macroblock level pipelines, our proposed 4x4-block level pipelining architecture of H.264/AVC decoder achieves better hardware(More)
Today's mobile Internet is heavily overloaded by the increasing demand and capability of mobile devices, in particular, multimedia traffic. However, not all traffic is created equal, and a large portion of multimedia contents on the mobile Internet is delay tolerant. We study the problem of capitalizing the content transfer opportunities under better(More)
A design of MPEG-2 and H.264/AVC video decoder is demonstrated in a 0.18µm CMOS [1]. The key design issues involved in this advanced IC are discussed, including improving area and power efficiency. Power dissipation is greatly lowered through the architectural exploration. Measurement results show that MPEG-2 and H.264/AVC real-time decoding of QCIF@15fps(More)
1. FUSION OF OPPORTUNISTIC TRANSMISSIONS People carry their mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, all the time, and generate tremendous amount of mobile video traffic. Per a Cisco report, mobile video represents 51% of mobile traffic in 2012, and mobile video users demand for short waiting time when clicking on a video. Unfortunately, network(More)
