Title: An Approach to Image Compression using R-D Optimal OMP Selection
Abstract Transform-based coding is a technique that is widely used in image and video compression, where compression is achieved via decomposing each component block or patch over a complete dictionary known to provide compaction. Recently, there has been a growing interest in using basis selection algorithms for signal approximation and compression. Signal approximation using a linear combination of basis functions from an over-complete dictionary has proven to be an NP-hard problem. To solve this problem, Orthogonal Matching Pursuit (OMP) algorithm is often used to select dictionary elements and their coefficients. Based on its iterative nature, this report discusses a Rate-Distortion Optimization (RDO) method to select the number of nonzero coefficients assuming that a sparsity constraint is given. Experimental results demonstrate a very good improvement by our proposed method over conventional DCT based scheme.

Title: Enhanced Intra Prediction Mode Coding by using Reference Samples
Abstract HEVC utilizes 35 intra prediction modes to predict each luma block. To ensure the selected mode for a luma block is signaled with minimal overhead, HEVC defines a set of three most probable modes (MPM), which are derived based on the modes of its two neighbors. If the intra prediction mode is not one of these three most probable modes, it is coded as one of the remaining modes using longer codeword. To improve the efficiency of intra prediction mode coding further, this report presents a method to derive a second set of most probable modes, by using neighboring reconstructed samples. One line of reference samples is used as the original pixels and predicted by another line of reference samples. The sum of absolute difference (SAD) is employed as a measurement to select several modes with minimum SADs as the second MPM set. Experimental results show that for all intra configurations, the proposed method achieves on average 0.54%, 0.34%, and 0.34% BD-rate reductions for Y, U and V, respectively.
摘要 高效率视频编码(HEVC)使用35个帧内预测模式来预测每一个亮度块。为了确保亮度块所选择的预测模式使用最少的信号编码，HEVC定义了一组最有可能模式(MPM)。通过当前亮度块的两个邻居块可以生成一组三个MPM模式。如果预测模式不是这三个MPM模式其中任何一个，那么这个预测模式将用一个较长的码字进行表示。为了进一步提高帧内预测模式编码的效率，本文提出了一种利用相邻的参考像素生成第二组MPM的方法。一行（或一列）参考像素被用做原始像素来预测另一行（或一列）参考像素。使用最小绝对和差(SAD) 来选择并生成第二组MPM模式。实验结果显示本方法在Y, U和V三个分量上BD-rate分别平均降低了0.54%, 0.34%, 和0.34%。
