In this paper, the authors propose an efficient, fast and parallel processing of 4×4 luminance intra prediction implemented on FPGA. H.264 advanced video coding is a present generation video compression algorithm which can achieve high compression ratio without degrading the video quality. To achieve high compression H.264 uses various algorithms. Intra prediction is one such algorithm to exploit the spatial redundancy in video frames. As they know there is a high correlation between pixels in a video frame. Intra prediction eliminates the correlation between pixels in a same frame to achieve compression.
