This paper proposes a temporal domain difference based secondary background modeling algorithm for surveillance video coding. The proposed algorithm has three key technical contributions as following. Firstly, the LDBCBR (Long Distance Block Composed Background Reference) algorithm is proposed, which exploits IBBS (interval of background blocks searching) to weaken the temporal correlation of the foreground. Secondly, both BCBR (Block Composed Background Reference) and LDBCBR are exploited at the same time to generate the temporary background reference frame. The secondary modeling algorithm utilizes the temporary background blocks generated by BCBR and LDBCBR to get the final background frame. Thirdly, monitor the background reference frame after it is generated is also important. We would update the background blocks immediately when it has a big change, shorten the modeling period of the areas where foreground moves frequently and check the stable background regularly. The proposed algorithm is implemented in the platform of IEEE1857 and the experimental results demonstrate that it has significant improvement in coding efficiency. In surveillance test sequences recommended by the China AVS (Advanced Audio Video Standard) working group, our method achieve BD-Rate gain by 6.81% and 27.30% comparing with BCBR and the baseline profile.
