Paper Abstract

A texture video-assisted motion vector predictor for depth map coding is proposed in this letter. Based on the analyses of motion similarity between texture videos and their corresponding depth maps, the proposed approach uses the motion vectors of texture videos and the median predictor jointly to determine the optimal predicted motion vector for depth map coding by employing a rate-distortion (R-D) criterion. Experimental results demonstrate that compared with the median predictor utilized in H.264/AVC, the proposed method can save the maximum and average bit rate as high as 4.89% and 3.68%, respectively, while guaranteeing the quality of synthesized virtual views.
