Motion estimation is the key part of video compression since it removes the temporal redundancy within frames and significantly affects the encoding quality and efficiency. In this paper, a novel fast motion estimation algorithm named Clustering Based Search algorithm is proposed, which is the first to define the clustering feature of motion vectors in a sequence. The proposed algorithm periodically counts the motion vectors of past blocks to make progressive clustering statistics, and then utilizes the clusters as motion vector predictors for the following blocks. It is found to be much more efficient for one block to find the bestmatched candidate with the predictors. Compared with the mainstream search algorithms, this algorithm is almost the most efficient one, 35 times faster in average than the full search algorithm, while its mean-square error is even competitively close to that of the full search algorithm.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.
