An unsymmetrical-cross multi-resolution motion search algorithm for MPEG4-AVC/H.264 coding

The new H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC) video-coding standard has a significant performance benefit compared to former standards. Unfortunately, those advanced coding features, including variable block-size motion compensation and multiple reference frames, incur a considerable increase in encoder complexity, especially when using the straightforward full search (FS… CONTINUE READING
