  • Patent number: 11019355
    Abstract: An inter-prediction method and apparatus uses a reference frame generated based on deep learning. In the inter-prediction method and apparatus, a reference frame is selected, and a virtual reference frame is generated based on the selected reference frame. A reference picture list is configured to include the generated virtual reference frame, and inter prediction for a target block is performed based on the virtual reference frame. The virtual reference frame may be generated based on a deep-learning network architecture, and may be generated based on video interpolation and/or video extrapolation that use the selected reference frame.

  • Patent number: 11006142
    Abstract: A method for decoding an image according to the present invention comprises the steps of: decoding a residual block by quantizing and inverse transforming an entropy-decoded residual block; generating a prediction block via motion compensation; and decoding an image by adding the decoded residual block to the prediction block, wherein on the basis of the maximum number of motion vector candidates of the motion vector candidate list related to the prediction block, a motion vector candidate list is adjusted by adding a particular motion vector candidate or by discarding a portion from among the motion vector candidates, and in the prediction block generation step, a prediction motion vector of the prediction block is determined on the basis of the adjusted motion vector candidate list. Accordingly, the complexity of arithmetic operations is reduced during encoding/decoding of an image.

  • Publication number: 20210136416
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are a video decoding method and apparatus and a video encoding method and apparatus. A transformed block is generated by performing a first transformation that uses a prediction block for a target block. A reconstructed block for the target block is generated by performing a second transformation that uses the transformed block. The prediction block may be a block present in a reference image, or a reconstructed block present in a target image. The first transformation and the second transformation may be respectively performed by neural networks. Since each transformation is automatically performed by the corresponding neural network, information required for a transformation may be excluded from a bitstream.

  • Publication number: 20210136395
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are a video decoding method and apparatus and a video encoding method and apparatus. Coding decision information of a representative channel of a target block is shared as coding decision information of a target channel of the target block, and decoding of the target block is performed using the coding decision information of the target channel. Since the coding decision information of the representative channel is shared with an additional channel, repeated signaling of identical coding decision information may be prevented. By means of this prevention, the efficiency of encoding and decoding of the target block or the like may be improved.
