Low complexity video encoding shifts the computational complexity from the encoder to the decoder, which is developed for applications characterized by scarce resources at the encoder. Wyner-Ziv and Slepian-Wolf theorems have provided the theoretic bases for low complexity video encoding. In this paper, we propose a low complexity video encoding using B-frame direct modes. We extend the direct-mode idea that was originally developed for encoding B frames, and design new B-frame direct modes. Motion vectors are obtained for B-frames at the decoder and transmitted back to the encoder using a feedback channel, hence no motion estimation is needed at the encoder to encoding any B frame. Experimental results implemented by modifying ITU-T H.26L software show that our approach can obtain a competitive rate distortion performance compared to that of conventional high complexity video encoding.
