Abstract

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard, generated by ITU, can provide compression ratio twice more than current H.264/ MPEG-4. To date, only a few hardware have been implementated for Integer Motion Estimation (IME) to date. In this paper, a parallel hardware architecture for IME in HEVC encoder is proposed. This design uses Rot-WDiamond (RWD) algorithm to reduce computational load and parallelism to improve processing speed. Therefore, this design can reach 4K (4096×2160) video in real time at 60 frames per second (fps) and achieve the frequency of 125MHz.
