Abstract

Current technologies in video encoding require real time solutions in motion gesture recognition for high definition video. Such needs will be a key determinant in the performance of hands-free video gaming consoles utilizing motion gesture recognition for interactive game play. Software solutions present higher costs due to increased bandwidth and increased processing speeds needed for high integrity video compression. We propose a hardware SoC solution to motion gesture recognition via modifications to motion estimation (ME) and motion vector (MV) modules of H.264 codec to reduce the associated overhead costs of real-time video processing.
