Video Coding with Superimposed Motion-Compensated Signals: Applications to H.264 and Beyond captures recent advances in motion compensation for efficient video compression. This book investigates linearly combined motion compensated signals, and generalizes the well known superposition for bidirectional prediction in B-pictures. The number of superimposed signals and the reference picture selection are important aspects of discussion. The application oriented part of the book employs the concept to ITU-T Recommendation H.263, and continues with the improvements by superimposed motion-compensated signals for the EMERGING STANDARDS ITU-T Recommendation H.264 & ISO/IEC MPEG-4 part 10. In addition, Video Coding with Superimposed Motion-Compensated Signals: Applications to H.264 and Beyond discusses a new approach for wavelet-based video coding. This technology is currently being investigated by MPEG, to develop a new video compression standard for the mid-term future. The theoretical part of Video Coding with Superimposed Motion-Compensated Signals: Applications to H.264 and Beyond provides a deeper understanding of the underlying principles of superimposed motion-compensated signals. This book incorporates more than 200 references, summarizes relevant prior work, and develops a mathematical characterization of superimposed motion-compensated signals. The derived information-theoretic performance bounds permit a valuable comparison of the investigated compression schemes. Video Coding with Superimposed Motion-Compensated Signals: Applications to H.264 and Beyond is designed for a professional audience composed of researchers and practitioners in industry. This book is also suitable as a secondary text for graduate-level students in computer science and engineering.
