Paper Abstract

We previously proposed a machine learning based post filtering method for reducing image artifacts caused by lossy compression. The method classifies reconstructed image samples into three categories using a support vector machine (SVM) to roughly discriminate magnitude of the reconstruction errors. Then, an optimum offset value is added to the samples belonging to each category in a similar way to the post filtering technique called sample adaptive offset (SAO) used in the H.265/HEVC standard. In this paper, two kinds of SVM classifiers are adaptively switched according to information on block boundaries of transform units (TUs) in H.265/HEVC intra-frame coding. Furthermore, samples used for a feature vector, which will be fed to the SVM classifier, are rotated at the block boundary to properly capture local characteristics of the reconstruction errors.
