T he motion estimation and compensation technique is widely used for video coding applications but the real-time motion estimation is not easy due to its enormous computations. In this paper, a new adaptive reduction of search area for the blockmatching algorithm is presented to reduce the computational complexity of the full search blockmatching algorithm for low bit-rate video coding. The proposed method exploits the correlation of successive video frames and adjusts the size of search area… CONTINUE READING
