  • Patent number: 12041263
    Abstract: In the related art, in some cases the weighted prediction processing is performed even in a case that normal prediction processing is to be performed. A video decoding apparatus includes a weighted prediction processing unit configured to decode a weight coefficient and an offset value from coded data and to generate a prediction image by multiplying an interpolation image by the weight coefficient and adding the offset value to the interpolation image, and a normal prediction processing unit configured to generate a prediction image from the interpolation image. In a case that in the weighted prediction processing unit, a bi-prediction is performed and information of the weight coefficient and the offset value is absent for both a reference list 0 and a reference list 1, the normal prediction processing unit generates a bi-prediction image.
