Explicit RDPCM syntax element missing

Reported by: jonathang Owned by:

Component: spec Version: VVC D5 v10
Keywords: Cc: ksuehring, bbross, XiangLi, fbossen, jvet@…


In VTM 5.0 within CABACReader::residual_coding, the function CABACReader::explicit_rdpcm_mode is called and may result in the decoding of an RDPCM flag and RDPCM direction from the bitstream if CU::isRDPCMEnabled(cu) is True:

void CABACReader::explicit_rdpcm_mode( TransformUnit& tu, ComponentID compID )

const CodingUnit& cu = *;

tu.rdpcm[compID] = RDPCM_OFF;

if( !CU::isIntra(cu) && CU::isRDPCMEnabled(cu) && ( tu.mtsIdx==MTS_SKIP
cu.transQuantBypass ) )



ChannelType chType = toChannelType( compID );
if( m_BinDecoder.decodeBin( Ctx::RdpcmFlag( chType ) ) )

if( m_BinDecoder.decodeBin( Ctx::RdpcmDir( chType ) ) )

tu.rdpcm[compID] = RDPCM_VER;


tu.rdpcm[compID] = RDPCM_HOR;





This function is called directly after CABACReader::mts_coding, which decodes the transform_skip_flag and tu_mts_idx syntax elements. In the spec (section there are no syntax elements for explicit RDPCM.

RDPCM not part of the VVC spec and the code parts in VTM are "left overs" from HEVC.
