A Modified Inter-view Prediction Scheme for Multiview Video Coding to Improve View’s Interactivity

Ayman Hamdan, Hussein A. Aly, Mohamed M. Fouad

Abstract

In this paper, we modify the inter-view prediction MVC-HBP scheme of the standard Multiview Video Coding (MVC). This modification yields reducing the extracted data size due to decoding a certain view from the MVC bit-stream, thus improving the random access. The proposed scheme is compared to the MVC standard using real data sequences. Clear improvements are shown using the proposed scheme over the competing approach in terms of data size and random access, with comparable values of rate-distortion (RD).
