Lossless coding is not guaranteed

At the San Jose meeting, lossless coding mode (H0530) and sign bit hiding (H0481) are adopted. In the lossless coding mode, lowest QP value is used to switch to lossless mode for CU's. However, when lossless coding mode is enabled , current design does not anymore guarantees a lossless operation due to sign bit hiding technique.

This is because sign bit is not signaled but derived from the magnitude of the levels and some combinations of level and sign are not allowed.

Suggested fix: Disable sign bit hiding for the blocks where lossless coding mode is applied.

The issue has been addressed in HM6.1 software. Specifically, the data hiding operation is disabled when the lossless coding mode is used in a CU.

The CD text (JCTVC-H1003_dK) will also need modificaiton to reflect the change. We propose the following change:

(1) In 7.3.10 Residual coding syntax

if (qpprime_y_zero_transquant_bypass_flag ==1 && QP’Y ==0) 
    signHidden = ( lastNZPosInCG – firstNZPosInCG >= sign_hiding_threshold) ? 1 : 0

(2) In

qpprime_y_zero_transquant_bypass_flag equal to 1 specifies that, when QP′Y is equal to 0, a lossless coding process shall be applied. In lossless coding operation, the scaling and transform process as specified in subclause 8.6 and the in-loop filter process as specified in subclause 8.7 are bypassed, and the sign bit hiding in residual_coding() is not applied.

The modified text is also attached.
