1. WO2020139913 - METHOD FOR SYNTAX CONTROLLED DECODED PICTURE BUFFER MANAGEMENT

Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

[ EN ]

Claims:

1. A method for managing a decoded picture buffer for video decoding using at least one processor, the method comprising:

decoding at least one syntax element related to a reference picture stored in the decoded picture buffer; and

reconstructing a current picture using the reference picture,

wherein the at least one syntax element indicates that the reference picture is at least one of available for future reference or unavailable for future reference.

2. The method of claim 1, wherein the reference picture is marked as unused for reference based on the reference picture being unavailable for future reference.

3. The method of claim 2, wherein the reference picture is previously output, and wherein the reference picture is marked as not needed for output based on the reference picture being previously output.

4. The method of claim 3, wherein, based on the reference picture being marked as unused for reference and marked as not needed for output, the reference picture is removed from the decoded picture buffer.

5. The method of claim 1, wherein the reference picture is marked as used for reference based on the reference picture being available for future reference, and

wherein, based on the reference picture being marked as used for reference, the reference picture is maintained in the decoded picture buffer.

6. The method of claim 1, wherein the at least one syntax element is included in a syntax structure, and

wherein the syntax structure comprises at least one of a picture header, a slice header, a tile header, a group of tiles header, or a parameter set.

7. The method of claim 1, wherein the at least one syntax element includes a first syntax element which is included in a parameter set and which indicates whether a second syntax element and at least one third syntax element is included in a second syntax structure.

8. The method of claim 7, wherein the second syntax element indicates a number of the at least one third syntax element included in the second syntax structure.

9. The method of claim 7, wherein the at least one third syntax element indicates a picture order count difference between the current picture and the reference picture.

10. The method of claim 7, wherein the at least one third syntax element indicates a sign of a picture order count difference.

11. A device for managing a decoded picture buffer for video decoding, the device comprising:

at least one memory configured to store program code; and

at least one processor configured to read the program code and operate as instructed by the program code, the program code including:

decoding code configured to cause the at least one processor to decode at least one syntax element related to a reference picture stored in the decoded picture buffer; and

reconstructing code configured to cause the at least one processor to reconstruct a current picture using the reference picture,

wherein the at least one syntax element indicates that the reference picture is at least one of available for future reference or unavailable for future reference.

12. The device of claim 11, wherein the reference picture is marked as unused for reference based on the reference picture being unavailable for future reference.

13. The device of claim 12, wherein the reference picture is previously output, and wherein the reference picture is marked as not needed for output based on the reference picture being previously output.

14. The device of claim 13, wherein, based on the reference picture being marked as unused for reference and marked as not needed for output, the reference picture is removed from the decoded picture buffer.

15. The device of claim 11, wherein the reference picture is marked as used for reference based on the reference picture being available for future reference, and

wherein, based on the reference picture being marked as used for reference, the reference picture is maintained in the decoded picture buffer.

16. The device of claim 11, wherein the at least one syntax element is included in a syntax structure, and

wherein the syntax structure comprises at least one of a picture header, a slice header, a tile header, a group of tiles header, or a parameter set.

17. The device of claim 11, wherein the at least one syntax element includes a first syntax element which is included in a parameter set and which indicates whether a second syntax element and at least one third syntax element is included in a second syntax structure.

18. The device of claim 17, wherein the second syntax element indicates a number of the at least one third syntax element included in the second syntax structure.

19. The device of claim 17, wherein the at least one third syntax element indicates a picture order count difference between the current picture and the reference picture.

20. A non-transitory computer-readable medium storing instructions, the instructions comprising: one or more instructions that, when executed by one or more processors of a device managing a decoded picture buffer for video decoding using at least one processor, cause the at least one processor to:

decode at least one syntax element related to a reference picture stored in the decoded picture buffer; and

reconstruct a current picture using the reference picture,

wherein the at least one syntax element indicates that the reference picture is at least one of available for future reference or unavailable for future reference.
