  • Publication number: 20220141472
    Abstract: An encoding method is provided which includes receiving a plurality of images, obtaining values of elements in a portion of the images, sorting the elements according to different values of the elements, sorting the elements according to a number of occurrences of the different values and encoding the elements using a subset of the different values having corresponding numbers of occurrences that are higher than corresponding numbers of occurrences of other values. Examples also include a processing device and method for use with palette mode encoding in which the elements are a portion of pixels in images and the values are color values of the portion of pixels in the images.

  • Patent number: 10771818
    Abstract: An encoder encodes pixels representative of a picture in a multimedia stream, generates a first approximate signature based on approximate values of pixels in a reconstructed copy of the picture, and transmits the encoded pixels and the first approximate signature. A decoder receives a first packet including the encoded pixels and the first approximate signature, decodes the encoded pixels, and transmits a first signal in response to comparing the first approximate signature and a second approximate signature generated based on approximate values of the decoded pixels. If a corrupted packet is detected, the multimedia application requests an intra-coded picture in response to the first approximate signature differing from the second approximate signature. The second signal instructs the decoder to bypass requesting an intra-coded picture and to continue decoding received packets in response to the first approximate signature being equal to the second approximate signature.
