Paper Abstract

This paper presents a new Region-of-Interest (ROI) based bit-allocation scheme for advanced video coding (H.264). We use a group-of-picture (GOP) structure to compensate bits consumption between Intra and Inter frames in one GOP, and simultaneously adjust the quantization parameter (QP) for each macroblock, according to the region-of-interest on Intra(I) or Inter(P) frames, respectively. Our algorithm is implemented on the H.264/AVC codec JM14.0 and totally compatible with existing H.264/AVC decoders. The experimental results show that compared to the standard JM14.0 encoder, under the same bitrate budget, the proposed algorithm achieves a subjective visual quality improvement as well as an objective PSNR gain. The ROI-based bit allocation scheme has a potential to low-bitrate and real-time video applications, such as video conferencing and mobile TV broadcasting.
