In H.264/AVC video coding standard, rate distortion optimization (RDO) is a very efficient technique to decide the coding mode of the macroblock and improves the coding performance greatly. But at the same time, RDO introduces a great deal of computation complexity because it needs to do the transform and entropy coding to get accurate distortion and bit… CONTINUE READING
