  • Publication number: 20200329239
    Abstract: A method for signaling adaptive loop filter (ALF) settings is provided. A video decoder receives data from a bitstream for a block of pixels to be decoded as a current block of a current picture of a video. The video decoder parses whether to use adaptive parameter set (APS) for filtering the current block without determining whether to select a particular APS from a plurality of APSs. When the APS is used to filter the current block, the video decoder parses a first filter selection index for selecting a filter from a set of filters in the APS. When the APS is not used to filter the current block, the video decoder signals a second filter selection index for selecting a filter from a set of default fixed filters. The video decoder filters the current block based on the selected filter. The video decoder outputs the filtered current block.

  • Patent number: 10750203
    Abstract: Method and apparatus of video coding using generalized bi-prediction are disclosed. According to one method, the generalized bi-prediction is extended for Decoder-Side Motion Vector Refinement (DMVR), where unequal weighting factor pair is allowed to form the template of the current block or the final predictor. In another method, the generalized bi-prediction is extended to pattern-based MV derivation (PMVD), where unequal weighting factor pair is allowed to combined reference blocks pointed by motion vectors derived based on PMVD. In yet another method, the generalized bi-prediction is used for Merge mode. When the final Merge MVP selected corresponds to bi-prediction using an unequal weighting factor pair, a new weighting factor pair is derived using neighboring reconstructed pixels of the current block and corresponding motion compensated pixels. In yet another method, the size of a set of weighting factor pairs is dependent on block size.

According to one method, a current block is partitioned into a plurality of sub-blocks using SDIP (Short Distance Intra Prediction mod). A first Bs (boundary strength) for an internal block boundary of the plurality of sub-blocks is determined by setting the first Bs to a second Bs of an Intra-coded boundary block of the current block. De-blocking process is applied, using the first Bs, to reconstructed samples across the internal block boundary of the plurality of sub-blocks to generate filtered-reconstructed samples. In another method, the current block is partitioned into two sub-blocks using SBT (sub-block transform) horizontally or vertically and the first Bs (boundary strength) is determined for an internal block boundary between the two sub-blocks by setting the first Bs to a second Bs of a non-zero cbf (coded block flag) block of the two sub-blocks in step.

  • Publication number: 20200204824
    Abstract: Method and apparatus of video coding are disclosed. According to the method, a boundary region in the current block is determined. For each pixel in the boundary region, an Intra predictor and an Inter predictor care derived. An Intra-Inter predictor is generated by blending the Intra predictor and the Inter predictor. Pixels in the boundary region of the current block are encoded or decoded using the Intra-Inter predictor. For the remaining pixels in the current block not belonging to the boundary region, the pixels are encoded or decoded using the Inter predictor or the Intra predictor. In another method, the Intra-Inter prediction process is implemented by scaling the sum of the Intra weighting factor and the Inter weighting factor is scaled to a power-of-2 number to avoid the need for the division operation. In yet another method, the Intra-Inter prediction is applied depending on the current block size.
