In current video encoding systems, the acquisition process is independent from the video encoding process. In order to compensate for the independence, pre-filters prior to the encoder are used. However, conventional pre-filters are designed under constraints on the temporal resolution, so they are not optimized enough in terms of coding efficiency. By relaxing the restriction on the temporal resolution of current video encoding systems, there is a good possibility to generate a video signal suitable for the video encoding process. This paper proposes a video generation method with an adaptive temporal filter that utilizes a temporally over-sampled signal. The filter is designed based on dynamic-programming. Experimental results show that the proposed method can reduce encoding rate on average by 3.01 [%] compared to the constant mean filter.
