    An automatic pitch type recognition system has been developed. It is difficult to determine the pitch type automatically from a baseball broadcast video, so the decision is currently made by specialists that have expertise and experience in baseball. We developed a system incorporating expertise of professionals. The system identifies pitch type, such as straight balls and curveballs, from single-... View full abstract»

    The "Reminiscing View" is a visualization system for browsing hierarchically organized photo and video-clip collections. The current Reminiscing View prototype supports browsing of hierarchical temporal event clusters. Users simply upload their pictures and video clips to a server and their collection is automatically clustered into hierarchical temporal events. They can then browse events in a ch...

    Selective encryption is a new trend in content protection. It aims at reducing the amount of data to encrypt while achieving a sufficient and inexpensive security. This approach is particularly desirable in constrained communication (real time networking with delay constraints, mobile communication with limited computational power...). In this paper we introduce selective encryption from informati... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the results of the application of a feature selection procedure to an automatic music genre classification system. The classification system is based on the use of multiple feature vectors and an ensemble approach, according to time and space decomposition strategies. Feature vectors are extracted from music segments from the beginning, middle and end of the original music sign... View full abstract»

    Because of the recent progress of inter-university communication system on the Internet or communication satellite system, lecture archiving system is becoming popular. Since the number of lectures is not small to record them manually by deploying technical staffs for each lecture, lectures are often recorded with a fixed video camera, which is always shooting wide-angle view including a projector...

    A new method to discriminate between speech and music related to the automatic transcription of broadcast news is presented. In the proposed method, a time series regularity, sample entropy (SampEn), is mainly used as an efficient feature to discriminate speech and music of broadcast audio stream. SampEn is a variant of the approximate entropy (ApEn) that measures the regularity of time series. De... View full abstract»

    Many multimedia applications rely on the computation of logarithms, for example, when estimating log-likelihoods for Gaussian Mixture Models. Knowing of the demand to compute logarithms and other basic math functions rapidly, many hardware manufacturers provide libraries to perform calculations in hardware. Of course, these libraries are especially popular for the use in computer vision or audio a... View full abstract»

    In this paper we will examine the effect of different parameters in the quality of real compressively sampled images in the compressed sensing framework. We will select a variety of different real images of different types and test the quality of the recovered images, the recovery time, and required resources when different measurement methods with different parameters are used or when different r...

    Reducing spatial redundancies between different camera views is one of the major challenges in multi-view video coding (MVC). However, with drastic increase in time consumption of such process, a proper way to reduce high computational complexity is needed. We propose an object-based fast prediction mode decision method in order to reduce complexity and time consumption of the coding process. Sinc... View full abstract»

    The seven prediction modes for P-slice provided in the inter-frame coding tool of H.264/AVC enables significant compression gain but at the cost of computational complexity. To address the issue, we propose in this paper a fast mode decision algorithm that is able to reduce the computational complexity of this coding tool by exploiting the coding modes of previously coded neighboring blocks and by...

    Scalable video coding was designed in response to the growing need for flexibility in video transmission over networks and channels. MPEG-4 scalable video coding (SVC) is a recently finalized standard which introduces new coding tools such as spatial, temporal and quality scalability, to produce a layer-based scalable video stream. Additionally, inter-layer prediction allows a layer to use informa... View full abstract»

    Many popular image compression schemes are based on block-transform coding, a technique where images are broken into small blocks of pixels prior to transformation and compression. Block-transform coding often introduces blocking artifacts which are particularly prevalent at low bit-rates due to quantization errors. A novel algorithm for deblocking block-transform compressed images is proposed in ... View full abstract»
