Memory Assessment of Versatile Video Coding

by   Arthur Cerveira, et al.

This paper presents a memory assessment of the next-generation Versatile Video Coding (VVC). The memory analyses are performed adopting as a baseline the state-of-the-art High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC). The goal is to offer insights and observations of how critical the memory requirements of VVC are aggravated, compared to HEVC. The adopted methodology consists of two sets of experiments: (1) an overall memory profiling and (2) an inter-prediction specific memory analysis. The results obtained in the memory profiling show that VVC access up to 13.4x more memory than HEVC. Moreover, the inter-prediction module remains (as in HEVC) the most resource-intensive operation in the encoder: 60 inter-prediction specific analysis demonstrates that VVC requires up to 5.3x more memory accesses than HEVC. Furthermore, our analysis indicates that up to 23
