Object-based coding approaches, such as the MPEG-4 standard approach, where a video scene is composed by several video objects, require that the rate control is performed by using two levels: the scene rate control and the object rate control. In this context, this paper presents a new scene level and object level rate control algorithm for low delay MPEG-4 video encoding capable of performing bit allocation for the several VOs in the scene, encoded at different VOP rates, and aiming at obtaining a better trade-off among spatial and temporal quality for the overall scene. The proposed approach combines rate-distortion modeling using model adaptation by least squares estimation and adaptive bit allocation to 'shape' the encoded data in order that the overall subjective quality of the encoded scene is maximized.
