Paper Abstract

The complexity model of the H.264 deblocking filter (DBF) is studied in this work. The DBF process consists of three main modules: 1) boundary strength computation, 2) edge detection, and 3) low-pass filtering. Complexities of all three are considered in the proposed model. DBF-based decoding complexity control is also investigated. It is shown experimentally that the proposed complexity model can provide fair estimation results. Besides, the H.264 encoder equipped with the complexity model and the DBF-based decoding complexity control algorithms can generate bit streams to save a significant amount of decoding complexity while offering quality similar to those generated by a typical H.264 encoder.
