RATE CONTROL FOR MULTI-SEQUENCE H.264/AVC COMPRESSION

Andrzej Pietrasiewicz, Grzegorz Pastuszak

Abstract

Multi-sequence video coding allows bit-budget to be distributed among sequences. This paper presents the method of selection of a common quantization parameter, which is applied concurrently to each sequence. The approach takes into account ρ-domain rate-distortion models kept independently for each video sequence and builds a common model. The output buffer is verified jointly for all the sequences and drives a joint bit allocation process. The method has been verified in simulation to demonstrate its usefulness in video encoding.
