Fast DC Mode Prediction Scheme for Intra 4x4 Block in H.264/AVC Video Coding Standard
In this paper, the researchers proposed a new scheme for DC mode prediction in intra frame for 4X4 block. In this scheme, the upper and left neighboring pixels would be used to predict each of the pixels in the 4X4 block with different weight. The prediction equations for each position of the 4X4 block in DC mode would be static with fixed weighting coefficients. As a result, the computational time for intra frame would be decreased considerably with an increase in PSNR.
