Residual Wavelet-Domain DVC Using an Optimized TCQ
Nowadays, the rate-distortion performance of distributed video coding (DVC) is not satisfied despite its distinct contribution to low-complexity encoding. This paper presents a new residual DVC using an optimized trellis coded quantization (TCQ) to improve the performance of the current schemes. H.264/AVC intra-frame coding is firstly used to obtain the referenced frame, and then the residual between Wyner-Ziv frame and the referenced frame is Wyner-Ziv encoded with a proposed optimized TCQ which consists of the improved quadtree and the improved TCQ, both considering the characters of wavelet coefficients in different sub-bands. Experimental results show that the proposed scheme outperforms the referenced in rate-distortion performance, and the goal of low-complexity encoding is achieved.
