# Block Matching Motion Estimation Computer Science Essay

**Published:** **Last Edited:**

This essay has been submitted by a student. This is not an example of the work written by our professional essay writers.

Block Matching Motion Estimation is known as technique to achieve high compression ratio in video coding has been generally adopted in various coding standards. By exhaustively testing all the candidate blocks within three search window, this technique is implemented conventionally. Full Search (FS) Algorithm is the type of implementation which is provided the optimum solution. However, this algorithm is required substantial amount of computational workload. To overcome this imperfection, many fast Block Matching Algorithms (BMA's) have been designed and developed. In order to find the optimum motion vector with minimal number of required search points, different search patterns and strategies is exploited.

One of these fast BMA's, which is proposed to be implemented in this project, is called Kite Cross Diamond Search (KCDS) Algorithm. The student is required to implement the algorithm in MATLAB and then compare its performance to FS algorithm as well as to other fast BMA's in terms of the peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR) produced, number of search points required and computational complexity.

## 1.2 PROBLEM STATEMENTS

Block matching method is to seek for the best matched block from the previous frame, which is the first single frame, within a fixed-sized of search window (w).It introduce the Full search (FS) method. In order to search the block with minimum distortion, full search method matches all possible displaced candidate block within the search area in the reference frame, so this FS algorithm have large motion and more searching point to do the blocks matching. It also introduces high intensive computation. Many fast motion estimation algorithms have been proposed to give a faster estimation with similar block distortion compared to FS over the last two decades. The fast Block matching algorithms are the three step search (TSS), the hexagon based search (HEXBS), the diamond search (DS), the new cross diamond search (NCDS) and kite cross diamond search (KCDS).

## LITERATURE REVIEW

## 2.1 Video Compression

Video compression is to simplify the quantity of data used to represent digital video images, and is a combination of spatial image compression and temporal motion compensation. Its plays an important role in digital libraries, video in demand and high definition television which are an example of applications of digital video. To exploit the spatial and temporal redundancy of video sequence, it needs used fewer bits to represent a video sequence at an acceptable visual distortion. Besides that, it also represents the objective of a video compression algorithm. [1]

The moving objects in an image sequence is identify by the object based video coding, then their boundaries and interiors is codes and separately. By using motion estimation and coding, video compression is exploiting the spatial and temporal redundancy. It compressed video can effectively reduce the bandwidth required to transmit video. [2]

## 2.2 Motion Estimation

Motion estimation is the process of determining motion vectors that describe the transformation from one 2D image to another; usually from adjacent frames in a video sequence. The temporal prediction technique used in MPEG video is based on motion estimation. To sending a full frame, the inherently have less energy and can be compressed by sending a encoded difference images, it need to save on bits. This is for the idea of motion estimation based video compression. From the video sequence, the motion estimation takes out the motion information.

Motion estimation is to estimate the pels or pixels of the current frame from reference frame. All the video consists of many sequences of frame. To calculate the low energy residue, the motion information is needed to use in video compression to find best matching block in reference frame. The Motion Compensation is to use of the knowledge of the displacement of an object is better successive frames.

By modifying the reference frames, which is very close match to the current frame, for the current frame will create a model by the motion estimation module. The motion vectors is relate to the whole image or specific parts, such as rectangular blocks, arbitrary shaped patches or even per pixel. Frame-rate video conversion, video compression, video retrieval and video surveillance are the example of video applications, and the key role of those applications in motion estimation.

## 2.3 Block Matching Algorithm (BMA)

The temporal redundancy remove technique between 2 or more successive frame is called block matching algorithm (BMA). It is an integral part for most of the motion-compensated video coding standards. Marco blocks (MB) is the frames are being divided into regular size blocks. The macro block is compared with equal block and its adjacent neighbors in the previous frame to create a vector that stipulates the movement of a macro block from one location to another in the previous frame. In the current frame, all macro blocks comprise a frame and this movement is calculated. [3]

Block matching method is to seek for the best matched block from the previous frame, usually the first single frame, within a fixed sized of search window (w). The displacement of the best matched block will be described as the motion vector (MV) to the block in the current frame by based on a block distortion measure (BDM) or other matching criteria.

Figure 2.1: The two frames used to determine the motion vector of a given block. [3]

Figure 2.2: Block matching a macro block

The best match is usually evaluated by a cost function based on a BDM such as Mean Square Error (MSE) and Mean Absolute Difference (MAD) is the less computationally and the most popular.

Many fast block-matching algorithms have been developed, for example, three-step search (TSS), four-step search (4SS), Diamond Search (DS), etc. These fast BMA exploit different search patterns and search strategies for finding the optimum motion vector with drastically reduced number of search points as compared with the FS algorithm.

## 2.4 Full Search Algorithm

Full search (FS) algorithm is a most accurate strategy in BMA which evaluates all possible candidate motion vectors in search window to find the optimum. The candidate that gives the best match for a given block distortion measure is chosen as the estimated motion vector.

## 2.5 Type of Fast Motion Estimation Algorithm

-Three Step Search (TSS) algorithm

- Hexagon based search (HEXBS) algorithm

- Diamond search (DS) algorithm

- New cross diamond search (NCDS) algorithm

- Kite Cross Diamond search (KCDS) Algorithm

## 2.5.1 Three Step Search (TSS) algorithm

One of the widely used in block matching motion estimation is the three-step search (TSS) algorithm. [4] This is because due to its simplicity and effectiveness. For the searching large motion, the sparsely distributed checking point's pattern is the suitable for this condition.. Among these fast BMAs, the three-step search (TSS) algorithm becomes the most popular because of its simplicity and effectiveness. Searching with a large pattern in the first step, TSS is more efficient to find the globe minimum especially for those sequences with large motion.

The Step had shown the TSS method.

At the first step, the initial step size is picked. From the centre (One center point and eight points on the boundary of the search square), eight blocks at a distance are compared in the first step and thereafter only 8 points are searched.

At the start of a new step the search point center is moved from the best matching point from the previous step. Step size is reduced by half after each step.

At the end of the search the step size is one pel.

## 2.5.2 Hexagon Based Search (HEXBS) Algorithm

To achieve the fastest search speed, the minimum number of search points and circle-shaped search pattern with uniform distribution is desirable to choose. Hexagon based search (HEXBS) algorithm [5] is the one of the faster block matching algorithm. The Figure 2.3 is shown search points of HEXBS. The number 1 is represent larger hexagon pattern which has seven check points and the number 2 is represent the inner search for the final search points.

Figure 2.3 Hexagon based search (HEXBS)

The hexagon-based search (HEXBS) algorithm steps is shown below

Step 1 : Step 1 is using the seven search points (large hexagon) to search window in the motion field. If the MBD point is at the center of the hexagon, the go step 3; otherwise, go step 2.

Step 2 : In step 2, the new large hexagon is formed by according to the MBD point in the previous search step as the center. If the MBD point is at the center point of the newly formed hexagon, then proceed to step 3; otherwise, repeat this step continuously.

Step 3 : Step 3 is the ending step. From the large hexagon, the search pattern is switch to small size. The new MBD point is search by compare the small size hexagon and the current MBD. The new MBD point is the final solution if motion vector.

## 2.5.3 Diamond Search (DS) algorithm

Diamond Search (DS) [6] algorithm is one of the fast block matching algorithm. There are two type of search pattern, which are large diamond and small diamond. Large diamond has nine search points and small diamond has five search points. The figure below is shown the search pattern of the large diamond and small diamond.

Figure 2.4 Large Diamond Search Pattern

Figure 2.5 Small Diamond Search Pattern

Step for Diamond Search (DS) algorithm:

Step 1: The first step is use the LDSP to search the MBD point at origin of search window. If the MBD point is found at the center, proceed to step 3; otherwise, proceed to step 2.

Step 2: Second step is from MBD point from previous step as center point, form a new LDSP. If the new MBD point is found at the center position, proceed to step 3; otherwise, repeat this step.

Step 3: Step 3 is the final solution of motion vector. The SDSP is use in this final step and the MBD point obtained in this step is the points of the best matching block.

## 2.5.4 New Cross Diamond Search (NCDS) Algorithm

New Cross Diamond (NCDS) algorithm [7] in the first step is same with the Cross Diamond Search (CDS) algorithm. Cross-shape pattern and diamond-shaped pattern is the pattern used in NCDS. This search pattern is almost same with the Kite Cross Diamond Search (KCDS) algorithm. The small cross-shape pattern (SCSP) and the large Cross-shaped pattern (LCSP) is shown is Figure 2.6.

Figure 2.6: Small cross-shaped pattern and Large cross-shaped pattern

Step for the NCDS algorithm

Step 1: First the centered point is at the origin of search window. By using SCSP to search points, the MBD is found. If the MBD point is at center, then search stops (First Step Stop); otherwise proceed to step 2

Step 2: In the second step, with the previous MBD points, the SCSP is use to search the new MBD point. If the MBD point is found at the center of SCSP, it will search stop (Second Step Stop); otherwise proceed to step 3.

Step 3: With the previous MBD point, the LDSP is form. If the MBD point is at the center of LDSP, then proceed to the step 4; otherwise repeat this step.

Step 4: The SDSP is formed by using the MBD point in previous step as a center. The new MBD point is the final solution of motion vector.

The kite-cross-diamond search (KCDS) algorithm adopts a novel asymmetric kite-shaped search patterns in the search step to keep similar distortion or even better in low-motion sequence while the speed of the motion estimation for stationary or quasi-stationary blocks is further boosted. KCDS is particularly faster and more accurate in some kinds of sequences. This algorithm is especially suitable for videoconferencing applications.

The search-point configurations used in the KCDS are divided in 3 different shapes: cross-shaped pattern, diamond-shaped pattern and kite-shaped pattern. The details and the analysis of the algorithm are given below:

Step 1 (Starting - Small Cross-Shape Pattern SCSP): A minimum BDM is found from the 5 search points of the SCSP (Small Cross-Shaped Pattern) [Figure 6] located at the center of search window. If the minimum BDM point occurs at the center of the SCSP (0,0), the search stops (First Step Stop); otherwise, go to Step 2.

Step 2 (KSP): With the vertex (minimum BDM point) in the first SCSP as the center, a particular KSP is formed based on the motion direction in previous step. For example, if the minimum BDM is located in upper vertex in first step, the new KSP will be an up-kite shape described as Figure 7 (a). Thus, there are 4 cases of newly formed KSP in this step: up-kite, down-kite, right-kite and left-kite, depends on the MV motion in step 1. If the minimum BDM point occurs at the center of this KSP, the search stops (Second Step Stop); otherwise go to Step 3.

Step 3 (Diamond Searching): A new Large-Diamond-Shaped Pattern LDSP is formed by repositioning the minimum BDM found in previous step as the center of the LDSP. If the new minimum BDM point is at the center of the newly formed LDSP, then go to Step 4 for converging the final solution; otherwise, this step is repeated.

Step 4 (Ending - Converging step): With the minimum BDM point in the previous step as the center, a SDSP (Small Diamond-

Shaped Pattern) is formed. Identify the new minimum BDM point from the SDSP, which is the final solution for the motion vector.

From the Table 4.2, the KCDS algorithm is the shorter elapsed time compare to other algorithms. In video of tennis, elapsed time for KCDS and HEXBS algorithms are 0.1293 second and 0.1313 second. The difference of the elapsed time is 0.002 second, which is reducing 1.52% in term of HEXBS. From the Table 4.3, KCDS and NCDS algorithms has a same average search point in video of akiyo, salesman, foreman and coastguard. If compared to DS algorithm, KCDS algorithm can reduce about 77.27% in term of DS algorithm. Form Table 4.4, the KCDS algorithm has a same PSNR in video of coastguard.

From the Table 4.8, the TSS algorithm has longer time compare to other algorithms, KCDS algorithm has shorter elapsed time in all the six video, which is reducing about 0.8~21% in term of the slower algorithms. Besides that, from Table 4.9, KCDS algorithm also has a lowest average search points in all the six video. NCDS algorithm has same step with the KCDS algorithm, but different search pattern, so average search points of NCDS algorithm is quite same with the KCDS algorithms. Form the Table 4.10, there are almost the same average PNSR value in all six video. KCDS algorithm maybe has less average PSNR compare to other algorithms, but is only about 1~10% in certain video.

## CHAPTER 5

## DISCUSSION

From the result above, the elapsed time and average search points of KCDS algorithm is the shorter compare to other algorithms. This is because KCDS algorithm has a critical search point which is kite pattern. This pattern can reduce the search point and the time. But in tern of PSNR, KCDS algorithm is lowest in the tennis video. These phenomena happen maybe because of the fast video. By refer to the image original and all algorithms predicted images, the predicted images of all algorithms will be different, this is cause by the process of block matching process or compression. From the PSNR table, the quality of image can be observed by according to the principle of peak-signal-noise-ratio. As a conclusion of the result analysis, the KCDS algorithm has a better performance in terms of elapsed time and average search point compare to other algorithms.

## SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION

By observing the result in chapter 4, the KCDS algorithm has an improvement of speed and average search points compare to other algorithms. It show that the KCDS algorithm has a better performance compare to TSS, HEXBS, DS and NCDS algorithms in terms of speed and average search points. The simulation results showed that KCDS is the fastest algorithm and it also providing the similar average PSNR and predicted accuracy to other algorithms, so KCDS algorithm is suitable for the all fast and slow video.
