In this paper, we first propose a new matching criterion called bit-plane matching (BPM) for distance measurement in the block matching algorithm. This criterion not only considers the magnitude but also the directive information of the pixel elements in the block. A simple adaptive block matching algorithm is also developed to adjust the search origin and search range at block-by-block basis. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm achieves similar MSE performance for motion-predicted images but requires about 8 times less number of computations than the full-search method.
