Abstract

Rate Control plays an important role in video compression for transportation over heterogeneous network bandwidth varying conditions. A combined spatial-temporal rate control scheme is proposed for scalable video coding. Introductory quantization parameter estimation is determined based on complete variance distortion method for I frame of first GOP and estimates buffer occupancy level. With the estimated buffer level, target bits are determined considering the coding complexity is proposed in the rate control scheme. In addition, a proportional integral and derivative (PID) controller that calculates the error and minimize fluctuation between the actual buffer fullness and target buffer fullness for competent buffer utilization. As a result, the proposed scheme exploits entire buffer exclusive of crossing overflow and underflow level. The investigational results are compared with other two benchmark schemes and the proposed scheme can able to achieve better target bit adjustment with condensed fluctuations and competent buffer utilization.
