Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR COMPRESSING VIDEO SEQUENCES
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE COMPRESSION DE SEQUENCES VIDEO
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method and apparatus (fig. 1) for compressing a plurality of video sequences (fig. 2, V1-V10) where each sequence (V1-V10) has information that is common with other sequences. The invention ensemble encodes (fig. 2, 220) the video sequences (fig. 2, V1-V10) into an MPEG compliant transport stream (fig. 1, E1-E10) using less predicted frame information than separately encoding each video sequence (fig. 2, V1-V10). One illustrative application of the invention is efficiently encoding (fig. 2, items 220) and transmitting (fig. 1, 104) a user interface such as a program guide (fig. 5, 560), navigator (fig. 5, 570) and the like. The user interface (fig. 5, 560) is illustratively embodied in an interactive programming guide (IPG).
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil (fig. 1) de compression de plusieurs séquences vidéo (fig. 2, V1-V10), où chaque séquence (V1-V10) contient des informations communes à d'autres séquences vidéo. Le dispositif de cette invention code (fig. 2, 220) les séquences vidéo (fig. 2, V1-V10) dans un flux d'acheminement compliant MPEG (fig. 1, E1-E10) utilisant moins d'informations de cadre prévues que celles codant séparément chaque séquence vidéo (fig. 2, V1-V10). Une application illustrant cette invention code (fig. 2, items 220) de manière efficace et transmet (fig. 1, 104) une interface d'utilisateur telle qu'un guide de programme (fig. 5, 560), un navigateur (fig. 5, 570) et similaire. L'interface d'utilisateur (fig. 5, 560) est inclue dans un guide de programme interactif (IPG).
