Skipping Strategies for High Definition H.264/AVC Real Time Video Coding

Susanna Spinsante, Ennio Gambi, Franco Chiaraluce


This paper discusses the feasibility of High Definition H.264/AVC video coding in the Baseline profile, for real time applications like videoconferencing. By means of suited SKIP strategies and exploiting the higher resolution, redundancyand visual information amount of the High Definition formats,with respect to Standard Definition, it is possible to speed upsignificantly the Mode Decision procedure, without affecting thefinal perceived quality.
