摘要：A planar model based intra prediction method for depth map is proposed based on the analyses of the nature of depth maps. The neighboring pixels as well as their corresponding pixel coordinates of current block are utilized to compute model parameters. Then, the predicted pixels of the current block are calculated based on the proposed model. Finally, a rate distortion criterion is used to choose the optimal prediction method between the proposed one and those of H.264. Experimental results demonstrate that by implementing the proposed method into H.264/multi-view video coding (MVC) software platform Joint Model of Multiview Video Coding version 8.3 (JMVC8.3), the maximum and average bit rate savings of depth maps can be achieved as high as -13.14% and -6.35%, respectively, while maintaining the same quality of synthesized virtual views.
