The Motion Transform: a new Motion Compensation Technique

Robert M. Armitano, Dinei A. Florencio, and Ronald W. Schafer


Motion estimation plays an important role in video coding

schemes by removing temporal redundancies that exist

in image sequences. Motion information that is required

in motion compensated prediction is transmitted as side

information, as in forward motion estimation, or can be

computed at the receiver in backward motion estimation.

The former method has the advantage of more accurate

prediction but, suffers in that the motion information is

transmitted as side information. We introduce the Motion

Transform (MT), a new motion estimation and compensation

technique that does not require the transmission of motion

vectors yet, performs well under a variety of conditions.

In the proposed method, motion information is obtained in

a bottom-up hierarchical fashion using a two-dimensional

wavelet-like decomposition.
