H.264/AVC FRExt (Fidelity Range Extensions) and Motion JPEG2000 are the latest inter-frame and intra-frame video coding standards, respectively. It is well known that an interframe method achieves higher coding efficiency compared with an intra-frame one, and the Motion JPEG2000 has been selected for digital cinema compression. In this paper, we attempt to compare these two different schemes with theoretical and experimental analysis for super-HD (high definition) visual signals. One additional contribution of the paper is that the impact of block partition, motion search range and skipped block size for inter-frame coding is discussed. Based on the analysis, we extend the standard H.264/AVC FRExt by using larger block size and search range. The experimental results show that this extension leads to higher coding efficiency and makes the H.264/AVC FRExt more suitable for super-HD video coding.
