High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is considered last standard for video compression with about 50% additional compression compared to the previous standard i.e. H264/AVC, while maintaining image quality. The significant increase in performance of this standard has been achieved with high computational complexity. In this standard, the intra prediction unit is one of the parts that, due to the increase in the number of prediction modes, although it greatly improves performance, significantly increases its computational complexity. In this paper, a method has been proposed to reduce the number of intra prediction modes in HEVC by which the computational complexity of compression at this stage can be reduced as much as possible. The proposed method determines the predominant mode of 4 × 4 blocks, determines the details in each larger block, and accordingly, by applying the appropriate filters and selecting the most likely mode, the number of candidate modes to select the best mode is reduced. The simulation results showed that on average the proposed method can reduce the compression time by 45% while increasing the bit rate by 0.69%.
