Paper Abstract

In H.264/AVC, an integer 4×4 transform is used instead of traditional float DCT transform due to its low complexity and exact reversibility. Combined with the normalization for the integer transform together, a division-free quantization scheme is used in H.264/AVC. H.264/AVC is the most outstanding video coding standard at far. But at first H.264/AVC targets to low bit-rate coding, and almost all experimental results of the proposals for H.264/AVC are tested at low bit-rate. In the near, experimental results show that 8×8 transform can further improve the coding efficiency on high definition (HD) coding. In this paper a kind of 8×8 low complexity integer transforms are studied and corresponding quantization schemes are developed for HD coding. Compared with 4×4 transform/prediction based coder, the proposed 8×8 based coder can achieve better performance on HD coding while with much lower encoder/decoder complexity.
