In video encoding, most of the computational load originates from motion estimation. Low complexity motion estimation methods have been developed in the literature in order to reduce the complexity of motion estimation which consumes most of the total power. By using the proposed local binary pattern based method at the binarization stage, pixels are represented by using only 1-bit instead of 8-bits. In this work, local binary pattern method is utilized as a low complexity motion estimation method and a hardware architecture is proposed for both binarization and matching stage.
