In this paper, we propose a novel joint rate distortion optimization (JRDO) model for intra prediction coding. The spatial prediction dependency is exploited by modeling the distortion propagation with a linear fitting function. A novel JRDO based Lagrange multiplier (LM) is derived from this model. To adapt to different blocks' distortion propagation characteristics, we also introduce a generalized multiple Lagrange multiplier (MLM) framework where some candidate LMs are used in the RDO process. Experiment results show that our proposed JRDO-MLM scheme is superior to the H.264/AVC encoder.
