Affine Transformation-Based Deep Frame Prediction

Hyomin Choi; Ivan V. Bajić

We propose a neural network model to estimate the current frame from two reference frames, using affine transformation and adaptive spatially-varying filters. The estimated affine transformation allows for using shorter filters compared to existing approaches for deep frame prediction. The predicted frame is used as a reference for coding the current frame. Since the proposed model is available at both encoder and decoder, there is no need to code or transmit motion information for the predicted frame. By making use of dilated convolutions and reduced filter length, our model is significantly smaller, yet more accurate, than any of the neural networks in prior works on this topic. Two versions of the proposed model - one for unidirectional, and one for bi-directional prediction - are trained using a combination of Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT)-based ℓ 1 -loss with various transform sizes, multi-scale Mean Squared Error (MSE) loss, and an object context reconstruction loss. The trained models are integrated with the HEVC video coding pipeline. The experiments show that the proposed models achieve about 7.3%, 5.4%, and 4.2% bit savings for the luminance component on average in the Low delay P, Low delay, and Random access configurations, respectively.
