Within the scope of this contribution we propose a novel efficient spatio-temporal prediction algorithm for video coding. The algorithm operates in two stages. First, motion compensation is performed on the block to be predicted in order to exploit temporal correlations. Afterwards, in order to exploit spatial correlations, this preliminary estimate is spatially refined by forming a joint model of the motion compensated block and spatially adjacent already decoded blocks. Compared to an earlier
