In this paper, we propose a filtering approach based on global motion estimation (GME) and global motion compensation (GMC) for pre- and postprocessing of video codecs. For preprocessing a video codec, group of pictures (GOP), which is a basic unit for GMC, and reference frames are first defined for an input video sequence. Next, GME and GMC are sequentially performed for every frame in each GOP. Finally, a block-based adaptive temporal filter is applied between the GMC frames before video encoding. For postprocessing a video codec at the decoder end, every decoded frame is inversely motion-compensated using the transmitted global motion information. The holes generated during inverse motion compensation can be filled with the reference frames. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm provides higher Bjontegaard-delta peak signal-to-noise ratios (BD-PSNRs) of 0.63 and 0.57 dB on an average compared with conventional H.264 and HEVC platforms, respectively.
