Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new buffer control strategy for DCT-based intrafield video encoder is presented. It selects the encoding parameters according to the rate-quantization models for three kinds of blocks: edge blocks, texture blocks and smooth blocks. It adapted to the scene changes through adjusting the R-Q models' parameters. A simple and effective criteria is presented for classifying the blocks. The classifying result based on it is close to the result gotten through quantizing the bits needed to code a block into three levels. This method can be applied to some other coding techniques such as H-261; MPEG, extra computations needed by it is modest. Experiments show that this buffer control policy can control the output bit rate steadily even at scene changes.
