High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) has achieved significant coding efficiency improvement beyond existing video coding standard by employing several new coding tools. Deblocking filter, Sample Adaptive Offset (SAO) and Adaptive Loop Filter (ALF) for in-loop filtering are currently introduced for the HEVC standard. However, these filters are implemented in spatial domain despite the fact of temporal correlation within video sequences. To reduce the artifacts and better align object boundaries in video, a proposed algorithm in in-loop filtering is proposed. The proposed algorithm is implemented in HM-11.0 software.
