Title
(EN) INTRA BLOCK COPY CODING WITH TEMPORAL BLOCK VECTOR PREDICTION
Abstract
(EN)

Embodiments disclosed herein operate to improve prior video coding techniques by incorporating an IntraBC flag explicitly at the prediction unit level in merge mode. This flag allows separate selection of block vector (BV) candidates and motion vector (MV) candidates. Specifically, explicit signaling of an IntraBC flag provides information on whether a specific prediction unit will use a BV or an MV. If the IntraBC flag is set, the candidate list is constructed using only spatial and temporal neighboring BVs. If the IntraBC flag is not set, the candidate list is constructed using only spatial and temporal neighboring MVs. An index is then coded which points into the list of candidate BVs or MVs. Further embodiments disclosed herein describe the use of BV-MV bi-prediction in a unified IntraBC and inter framework.
