In a template matching (TM) intra method, the neighboring samples of the current block are regarded as a template. The decoder searches for the best template match in the current reconstructed picture using an error minimizing metric like sum of squared differences (SSD). The prediction signal is generated by copying the samples of the adjacent block to the selected template match. The increased decoder complexity from the search algorithm makes it less attractive for modern applications like video calling. In a previous publication [1], we presented a region-based template matching (RTM) approach for intra coding. Compared to the conventional TM methods which searches for the template match in a complete search window, RTM searches in a region of the search window. Thus, RTM offers a better trade-off between coding efficiency and decoder complexity. Nevertheless, the memory requirements and number of computations to be carried at the decoder are still high, making RTM difficult for hardware realization. This paper aims to address these issues.
