Recently, there have been two interesting trends in image and video coding research. One is to use human visual system (HVS) models to improve the current state-of-the-art coding algorithms by better exploiting the properties of the intended receiver. The other is to design rate-scalable video codecs, which allow the extraction of coded visual information at continuously varying bit rates from a single compressed bitstream. We follow these two trends and propose a foveation scalable video coding (FSVC) algorithm, which supplies good quality-compression performance as well as effective rate scalability to support simple and precise bit rate control. A foveation-based HVS model plays a key role in the algorithm. The algorithm is amenable to the inclusion of various HVS models and adaptable to different video communication applications
