In this paper, we propose a DCT based binary matching approach for fast motion estimation. The proposed approach is suitable to be applied to our previously proposed retinex based coding system which is characterized with fast motion estimation and the capability of accurately estimating motions for sequences having inter-frame brightness variations. We propose to apply the DCT techniques to the transformation of images to the binary bit plane and to the scaled retinex domain, which is more
more » ... utationally efficient compared to the conventional convolution based bit transformation approach. Experimental results show that our proposed DCT based bit transform has a very close prediction quality performance(less than 0.1dB drop) to that of the convolution based approach while our system can avoid the extra convolution procedure.
