his paper proposes a fast mode decision algorithm for H.264/AVC based on skip prediction and early termination techniques. The skip decision is based on a partially computed sum of absolute differences metric combined with utilization of the Lagrangian rate-distortion cost function from the previous frame. A statistical analysis of the spatio-temporal characteristics of the rate distortion cost function and SAD metric for skip decisions is provided. Experimental results show that the new… CONTINUE READING
