Paper Abstract

Achieving very low bitrates for video applications in a mobile environment is essential. Video codecs standards evolution had a tremendous impact in the development of digital video, making possible today widespread usage of video data. At the same time it had an impact on the direction of research, biasing most of the efforts towards block based video. Alternative approaches may though lead towards different architectures able to provide higher compression efficiency. In this paper we propose a Matching Pursuit (MP) based video coder that adopts a generalized sub-pixel motion compensation and arithmetic coding. We introduce a new dictionary, and an adaptive grid for atom coding combined with an arithmetic coder. Comparison with H.264 show an improvement of up to 20% in compression efficiency for the same PSNR
