Although open-loop transcoding is known as the most computational efficient transcoding structure, it is also known to introduce many distortions in the transcoded video. This paper addresses the chrominance distortions resulting from the open-loop MPEG2 to H.264 transcoding structure and proposes algorithms to compensate for the chrominance distortions. The open-loop structure is replaced by a closed-loop transcoding structure, which provides high-quality video by removing the chrominance distortions, resulting in an average of 6 dB picture quality improvement
