Abstract

H.264 intra prediction algorithm has a very high computational complexity. This paper proposes a technique for reducing the amount of computations performed by H.264 intra prediction algorithm. For each intra prediction equation, the proposed technique compares the pixels used in this prediction equation. If the pixels used in a prediction equation are equal, this prediction equation is simplified significantly. By exploiting the equality of the pixels used in prediction equations, the proposed technique reduces the amount of computations performed by 4x4 luminance prediction modes up to 78% with a small comparison overhead. The proposed technique does not affect the PSNR and bit rate. We also implemented an efficient 4x4 intra prediction hardware including the proposed technique using Verilog HDL. We quantified the impact of the proposed technique on the power consumption of this hardware on a Xilinx Virtex II FPGA using Xilinx XPower, and it reduced the power consumption of this hardware up to 13.7%.
