Abstract

Intra-mode decision plays an important role in the new high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) video compression standard. The higher number of intra-modes in HEVC standard increased the computational complexity and encoding time significantly. To reduce the encoding time with as low effect as possible on the coding quality, a new algorithm based on the texture of the block diagonals is proposed. The proposed algorithm is used to reduce the number of calculations observed in the original standard. The results show that the proposed algorithm can show variety of solutions with wide range of encoding time reduction and BD rate increment. The solution with the highest time saving within an acceptable BD rate increment shows 40.85% time saving and 1.75% BD rate increment. With different parameters settings, BD rate increments with as low as 0.78% can be achieved while having 33.38% time saving.
