Paper Abstract

This paper presents a method for perceptual video compression that exploits the phenomenon of backward temporal masking. We present an overview of visual temporal masking and discuss models to identify portions of a video sequences masked due to this phenomenon exhibited by the human visual system. A quantization control model based on the psychophysical model of backward visual temporal masking was developed. We conducted two types of subjective evaluations and demonstrated that the proposed method up to 10% bitrate savings on top of state of the art encoder with visually identical video. The proposed methods were evaluated using HEVC encoder.
