  • Patent number: 11070814
    Abstract: A video image encoding apparatus includes an in-picture motion vector calculation unit and a vector encoding unit. The in-picture motion vector calculation unit calculates an in-picture motion vector indicating a spatial movement amount between a block to be encoded and a reference block in an encoded region in the picture to be encoded. The vector encoding unit obtains a prediction vector for predicting the in-picture motion vector of the block to be encoded based on at least one of a first in-picture motion vector calculated in a first reference available region including a block encoded before the block to be encoded is encoded and a second in-picture motion vector calculated in a second reference available region including a block in a position corresponding to the block to be encoded in an already encoded reference picture, and performs prediction encoding on the in-picture motion vector based on the prediction vector.

  • Publication number: 20200177907
    Abstract: A video encoding apparatus appends decoding delay and display delay correction information to encoded video data in order to ensure that even when one or more pictures that are later in encoding order than a starting encoded picture in a video data stream to be spliced to a trailing end of another encoded video data stream have been discarded from among pictures contained in the video data stream, the starting encoded picture and its subsequent pictures can be continuously decoded and displayed by a video decoding apparatus. The correction information is calculated based on a decoding interval between each discarded picture and a picture that immediately precedes the discarded picture. The video decoding apparatus corrects the decoding delay and display delay of the starting encoded picture and its subsequent pictures by using the calculated correction information.
