The rate-distortion optimization (RDO) method is an informative technology that improves the coding efficiency, but increases the computational complexity, of the H.264 encoder. In this letter, a fast Macroblock mode determination algorithm is proposed to reduce the computational complexity of the H.264 encoder. The proposed method reduces the encoder complexity by 55%, while maintaining the same level of coding efficiency.
