Abstract: In this paper we propose an improved motion estimation algorithm based on evolutionary strategy (ES) for H.264 video codec applied to video. The proposed technique works in a parallel local search for macroblocks. For this purpose (mu+lambda) ES is used with an initial population of heuristically and randomly generated motion vectors. Experimental results show that the proposed scheme can reduce the computational complexity up to 50% of the motion estimation algorithm used in the H.264 reference codec at the same picture quality. Therefore, the proposed algorithm provides a significant improvement in motion estimation in the H.264 video codec.
