Paper Abstract

The joint temporal-spatial rate control problem was examined in to achieve proper temporal-spatial quality tradeoff. Theoretical analysis and the performance benchmark of several optimal/suboptimal algorithms were presented. However, the high computational complexity of these solutions prevents them from being used in practical applications. To address this problem, good rate-distortion (R-D) models used to approximate empirical R-D curves are developed in this work. The complexity caused by actual encoding is reduced so that the process of finding the optimal/suboptimal solutions is significantly expedited. Different approximating R-D models are proposed for INTRA, INTER and skipped frames, respectively, by considering both coding and interpolation dependencies among successive frames. Simulation results show that the approximation error of the proposed R-D models are very small, which results in small degradation of coded video quality.
