  • Patent number: 11032559
    Abstract: Disclosed is technology associated with video encoding and decoding having a structure including one or more layers (quality, spatial, and view) and technology associated with a method that predicts an higher layer signal by using one or more reference layers in encoding and decoding an higher layer. In more detail, an interlayer prediction is capable of being performed by considering a characteristic of each layer by separating a spatial and quality reference layer list constituted by spatial and quality layers to be referred at the same view as a target layer and a view reference layer list constituted by the same spatial and quality layers as a target layer in encoding and decoding encoding and decoding pictures of an higher layer in encoding and decoding encoded and decoded pictures of the higher layer to improve encoding and decoding efficiency.

  • 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.

    Abstract: Disclosed herein are a decoding method and apparatus and an encoding method and apparatus that perform inter-prediction using a motion vector predictor. For a candidate block in a col picture, a scaled motion vector is generated based on a motion vector of the candidate block. When the scaled motion vector indicates a target block, a motion vector predictor of the target block is generated based on the motion vector of the candidate block. The motion vector predictor is used to derive the motion vector of the target block in a specific inter-prediction mode such as a merge mode and an AMVP mode.
