  • Publication number: 20240073416
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an apparatus and method for encoding and decoding an image by skip encoding. The image-encoding method by skip encoding, which performs intra-prediction, comprises: performing a filtering operation on the signal which is reconstructed prior to an encoding object signal in an encoding object image; using the filtered reconstructed signal to generate a prediction signal for the encoding object signal; setting the generated prediction signal as a reconstruction signal for the encoding object signal; and not encoding the residual signal which can be generated on the basis of the difference between the encoding object signal and the prediction signal, thereby performing skip encoding on the encoding object signal.

  • Patent number: 11889052
    Abstract: A method for coding image information includes generating prediction information by predicting information on a current coding unit, and determining whether the information on the current coding unit is the same as the prediction information. When the information on the current coding unit is the same as the prediction information, a flag indicating that the information on the current coding unit is the same as the prediction information is coded and transmitted. When the information on the current coding unit is not the same as the prediction information, a flag indicating that the information on the current coding unit is not the same as the prediction information and the information on the current coding unit are coded and transmitted. At the generating of the prediction information, the prediction information is generated by using the information on the coding unit neighboring to the current coding unit.

  • Publication number: 20240013449
    Abstract: An encoding apparatus extracts features of an image by applying multiple padding operations and multiple downscaling operations to an image represented by data and transmits feature information indicating the features to a decoding apparatus. The multiple padding operations and the multiple downscaling operations are applied to the image in an order in which one padding operation is applied and thereafter one downscaling operation corresponding to the padding operation is applied. A decoding method receives feature information from an encoding apparatus, and generates a reconstructed image by applying multiple upscaling operations and multiple trimming operations to an image represented by the feature information. The multiple upscaling operations and the multiple trimming operations are applied to the image in an order in which one upscaling operation is applied and thereafter one trimming operation corresponding to the upscaling operation is applied.
