IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology 18(7), 975–982 (2008) 9. : Calculation of Average PSNR Differences Between RD-curves. cn Abstract. In this paper, we propose a novel quality control scheme which aims to keep quality consistency within a frame. Quality consistency is an important requirement in video coding. However, many existing schemes usually consider the quality consistency as the quantization parameter (QP) consistency.

4] used the sub-sampled resolution for the RD cost function and applied the context-based most probable modes table to skip unlikely candidate modes, and then the encoding time was reduced by about 50%. Pan et al. [5] used the Sobel operator to detect edge angles of 4x4 blocks and 16x16 macroblocks, and this fast algorithm reduced candidate modes to save computations and the encoding time. Cheng et al. [6] proposed the three-step fast algorithm to simplify the cost generation and the mode decision.
