Direct macroblock coding for predictive (P) pictures in the H.264 standard

Abstract

In this paper we introduce a new Inter Macroblock type within the H.264 (or MPEG-4 AVC) video coding standard that can further improve coding efficiency by exploiting the temporal correlation of motion within a sequence. This leads to a reduction in the bits required for encoding motion information, while retaining or even improving quality under a Rate… (More)
