This paper proposes a parallel architecture design for motion estimation (ME) by using the new three step search (NTSS) block-matching algorithm. The proposed NTSS-based parallel architecture adopts the partition technique to separate the encoded frame into two parts for operating. By using the partition technique, the search time of the proposed NTSS-based parallel architecture can be reduced more than 1/2 times. In other words, the proposed NTSS-base parallel architecture design produces… CONTINUE READING
