Mixed-resolution distributed video codec without motion estimation at the encoder
Inspired by recent results showing that Wyner-Ziv coding using a combination of source and channel coding may be more efficient than pure channel coding, we have applied coset codes for the source coding part in the transform domain for Wyner-Ziv coding of video. The framework is a mixedresolution approach where reduced encoding complexity is achieved by low resolution encoding of non-reference frames and regular encoding of the reference frames. Different from our previous works, no motion estimation is carried at the encoder, neither for the low resolution frames nor the reference frames. The entropy coders of the H.264/AVC codec were tuned to improve their performance for encoding the cosets. An encoding mode with lowest encoding complexity than H.264/AVC intra mode is achieved. Experimental results show a competitive rate-distortion performance especially at low bit rates.
