Scalable Video Coding Bit Stream Extraction Based on Equivalent MSE Method
The bit stream extraction plays an important role in Scalable Video Coding (SVC) . However, one downside of current video coding methods is to ignore the video contents which is in fact an important factor for video coding efficiency. Therefore, an equivalent MSE method is proposed in this paper to extract substreams in the temporal and spatial enhancement layers. When the Motion Vectors (MVs) are large in one video, a larger frame rate is necessary to maintain the continuity of the object movement which makes no jump in the visual sense. In this sense, substreams extraction in temporal enhancement layer has to be satisfied. On the other hand, if there are some larger high-frequency components in a single frame of the video, that is to say, there are some higher spatial details in the video stream. As a result, it should try to meet the extraction requirement in spatial enhancement layer. This method has the advantage of considering the contents of the video, which can effectively improve the coding performance and quality. The experimental results have demonstrated the improved quality of reconstructed video for the equivalent MSE method when extracting bit stream arbitrarily at the same bandwidth.
