  • Patent number: 10390028
    Abstract: Methods of palette coding to reduce the required coding process are disclosed. According to one method, smaller blocks are derived from a large block. The histogram of the large block is derived based on the histograms of smaller blocks in the large block. According to another method, one or more palette tables are derived based on multiple blocks. One palette table is used for each of the multiple blocks. According to yet another method, index map transpose is performed in the parsing stage according to the transpose flag of the index map. Accordingly, a buffer to store the transpose flags can be saved. According to still yet another method, the palette predictor update is performed using an index mapping table to avoid the need for shuffling the contents of the palette predictor stored in a palette buffer.

  • Publication number: 20190246125
    Abstract: A method and apparatus perform palette coding of a block of video data by initializing the palette or triplet palette or using a selected palette or triplet palette from a preceding image area for the beginning block of the current image area. The method receives input data associated with a current image area consisting of multiple blocks. For the beginning block, coding palette predictor is determined based on an initial palette or triplet palette or based on a selected palette or triplet palette associated with a selected block located at a location before the end of a preceding image area. For blocks of the current image area, palette coding is applied to the blocks, where at least one block uses the palette predictor for the beginning block as the palette predictor.

  • Patent number: 10351115
    Abstract: An air brake relay valve includes an air guide unit having a movable set, a drive unit having a motor and a worm shaft, and a cam unit having a transmission member and a driven member. During a brake action, the motor rotates the worm shaft to rotate the transmission member so as to push the driven member downward to thereby move the movable set to a communicating position where a first valve opening and a second valve opening fluidly communicate with each other. When the brake action is released, the motor rotates reversely so that the driven member is moved upward and that the movable set moves, without being applied with additional force, to a non-communicating position where the first and second valve openings do not fluidly communicate.
