**Mode Dependent DCT/DST**

Motivation for DST [10]: When prediction is performed from one-side, the energy in prediction error residuals increases as we go away from the boundary A sine transform is better adaptable to these prediction residual statistics Fast implementation of DST-VII is used in HEVC For block size of NxN with j, j as row and column indices of the 2-D DST matrix for DST-VII is given as Applied only to 4x4 luma intra prediction residuals

25
**Categories of unified intra prediction modes in HEVC**

Category 1 oblique modes [12]: Prediction is performed from the decoded pixels from either the top row or the left column. The vertical mode 0 and the horizontal mode 1 are special cases of this oblique mode Category 2 oblique modes [12]: Prediction is performed from both the top row and the left column pixels DC mode [12]: Prediction is performed from an average of all available decoded pixels ; DCT is shown to be the optimal transform along both the directions

**Category 1 oblique modes**

(a) Prediction from top row only [12] (b) Prediction from left-column only [12]

**Obtaining DST matrices for H.264**

To implement the same DST matrix in H.264, the norm along each row of the DST matrix is made equal to the norm of the corresponding row of the DCT matrices. Divide rows of the DST matrix by the factor : Norm of row ′x′ of DST Norm of row ′x′ of DCT

**Implementation of Mode Dependent DCT/DST in H.264**

Mode dependent DCT/DST is implemented in the H.264 Reference Software JM 18.4 [13] in the Main profile Matrix multiplication is implemented instead of fast implementation as the new transform matrices obtained are non-integer values It is verified that the default fast DCT implementation in H.264 reference software and DCT matrix multiplication give the same results Simulations are run on an i7 quad 4, 2.0 GHz processor, 8 GB RAM Performance of default fast DST implementation in HEVC is also analyzed using HEVC reference software HM 8.0 [14] in the Intra Main profile

36
BD PSNR gives the absolute PSNR gain at the same bitrate and BD Bitrate gives the percentage bitrate savings at the same PSNR BD PSNR and BD Rate [16] [17] are used to analyze the performance of the RD-curves Video sequences[15] belonging to HD (1920x1080, 1280x720), WVGA (832x480) and WQVGA (416x240) are used for evaluating the performance WVGA: Wide Video Graphics Array (Touch screen mobile phones support this resolution) [18] WQVGA: Wide Quarter Video Graphics Array (Hand-held internet- enabled devices support this resolution) [18] Only the first frame ( I frame) of the video sequences are considered for the analysis

37
**Calculation of BD PSNR and BD Rate**

BD PSNR and BD Rate represent the average PSNR and bitrate differences respectively between two rate distortion (RD) curves [16] Fit a curve through four data points corresponding to QP = 16, 20, 24, 28 The data points are Y-PSNR values for BD PSNR and bitrate values for BD Rate A good interpolation curve through the four data points can be obtained by a third order polynomial of the form: SNR = a + b*bit + c*bit2 + d*bit3 where a, b, c, d are determined such that the curve passes through all the data points The difference between the RD curves is dominated by high bitrates. Hence logarithmic value of bitrate is considered for calculating BD Rate In the same way, we can do interpolation as a function of SNR as follows: SNR = a + b*SNR + c*SNR2 + d*SNR3 Based on the interpolation , find an expression for the integral of the curve The average difference is the difference between the integrals divided by the integration interval

51
Conclusions HEVC shows almost 1.5 – 2 dB performance improvement in quality over default H.264 Four out of 12 input sequences showed some performance improvement for Mode Dependent DCT/DST in H.264 The performance drop in most cases could be due to many reasons: Use of non-integer transform coefficients which results in the decrease in accuracy of reconstructed output The number of prediction modes is just 9 in case of H.264 and 33 in case of HEVC. The DCT/DST combinations are used for less number of prediction directions in the former case Selection of the best prediction mode and the corresponding mode dependent DCT/DST is not considered here

52
Future Work The scan order of the transformed coefficients can be modified to obtain better performance depending upon the intra prediction direction for each block Rate distortion optimization could be used to apply Mode Dependent DCT/DST only to the best performing modes Higher resolution video sequences can be used for analysis by using the High profiles in H.264 Analysis can be extended to block sizes other than 4x4 luma and also for chroma intra prediction residuals
