Paper Abstract

In contrast to conventional video coding, Wyner-Ziv video coders perform simple intra-frame encoding and complex inter-frame decoding using side information. An important process in Wyner-Ziv decoding is the reconstruction process. So far, two main reconstructions have been used: the Maximum a Posteriori (MAP) reconstruction and the Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) reconstruction. In this paper, we study the MAP and MMSE reconstructions for both Pixel-Domain and Transform-Domain Wyner-Ziv video coders. We also present a new reconstruction function for Pixel-Domain Wyner-Ziv video coders that adapts to the local accuracy of the side information. Experimental results show that our adaptive reconstruction provides improvements over both the MAP and the MMSE reconstructions.
