  • Patent number: 9338464
    Abstract: Adaptively indicating field and frame encoding of coded pictures, such as but not necessarily limited to those transmitted in accordance with High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) (ISO/IEC 23008-2)/ITU-T Recommendation H.265, is contemplated. The field and frame encoding indications may be provided at various levels of granularity, such as on a per picture basis, a per slice basis and/or a per slice segment basis.

  • Publication number: 20070271321
    Abstract: Techniques for efficiently performing transforms on data are described. In one design, an apparatus performs multiplication of a group of data values with a group of rational dyadic constants that approximates at least one irrational constant scaled by a common factor. Each rational dyadic constant is a rational number with a dyadic denominator. The common factor is selected based on pre-computed numbers of operations for multiplication of a data value by different possible values of at least one rational dyadic constant. The pre-computed numbers of operations may be stored in a look-up table or some other data structure and may be used to evaluate different possible values for the common factor. The use of the common factor may reduce complexity and/or improve precision. The multiplication may be performed for various transforms such DCT, IDCT, etc.

  • Publication number: 20060089960
    Abstract: The invention provides a method, data compression system, apparatus, and article of manufacture which reduce the error in transform equations in which constants are replaced by approximations. According to the invention transform constants are replaced with approximations which are a function of an integer and a floating point value. The transform equation is then performed with the integers in place of the constants. The floating point value may be applied either to the result of the equation or to the data to be processed by the transform equation before the equation is performed. Further the floating point value may be applied using a fixed precision version of the value or a fixed precision value into which the floating point value has been factored.

  • Publication number: 20060080373
    Abstract: The invention provides a method, a data analyzing system, an apparatus, and article of manufacture which reduce the error in transform equations in which constants are replaced by approximations. This is achieved by factoring an adjustment factor into the calculations which serves to reduce the error introduced by the approximations. For a forward transform equation this may be performed as part of a quantization step and for an inverse transform equation this may be performed as part of a de-quantization step. For example the adjustment factor could reduce the maximum error associated the approximations.

  • Publication number: 20060080374
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method, apparatus, and article of manufacture for controlling truncation error which is introduced when performing a transform equation as a result of lowering the precision of elements of the equation using shift right operations. This is achieved by associating a predetermined truncation amount with a plurality of operations of the transform equation and defining an ordered set of the operations to perform the transform which control the truncation error in the result if each operation introduced the predetermined truncation amount associated with it. Accordingly the transform is performed using the defined ordered set. For example the pre-determined truncation error could be an average truncation error.

  • Publication number: 20060078213
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods, apparatus and articles of manufacture for performing a transform equation in which at least two sub-transform equations can be identified. According to the invention, each sub-transform is considered separately and the constants of each sub-transform are replaced with an approximation which is a function of an integer value and a second value, where the second value is common to each constant in a sub-transform. The transform equation is then performed with the integer values in place of the constants. As a result either the input to the transform equation or at least one of the result of the transform and a value to be compared the result, is modified with a value which is a function of the second values for each sub-transform. By considering each sub-transform separately the second values of each sub-transform can be different thus allowing more accurate approximations to be used with minimal degradation in performance.
