ABSTRACT
Rate-Distortion optimization can significantly improve encoder per-
formance in MPEG-like video coding applications especially when
it is applied to coding mode selection and motion estimation. Nev-
ertheless, it is not easy to implement Rate-Distortion optimization
in real-time video encoders because of its prohibitive computa-
tional cost. In this paper, we propose a joint macroblock mode
selection and motion estimation by employing a computationally-
efficient, yet highly-effective rate-distortion model. Experimen-
tal results show that the proposed algorithm provides significant
PSNR improvements with a small increase in overall computa-
tional load over the TM5-based encoder.
