Screen Content coding (SCC) is one of an extension to High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) developed by the Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC). It adopts two new coding tools, intra block copy (IBC) and palette (PLT) modes, to improve the compression performance for intra coding. Nevertheless, mode selection causes a substantial increase in encoding complexity. In this paper, a fast mode decision algorithm, which makes use of early mode skip decision based on the Bayesian decision… CONTINUE READING
