US 8,249,159 (2012-08-21), ZL200580025854.4 (2010-02-03), 128735 (2009-06-30)
Strategic Thrust: 
A grid motion estimation and compensation scheme is proposed to designa custom oriented SVC scheme. The grid is determined by the atoms of thescalability, the optimal point and the suboptimal points chosen by the user.A novel video coding approach, refinement by recursive motion compensation,is invented.
