    The entire Band IV/V (470-862 MHz), allocated to analogue broadcasting services in Europe and Africa, will not be used after switchover to digital TV transmission. Re-planning of broadcasting networks will exhibit the so called digital dividend, the frequencies no more necessary for DVB-T (SD and HD) and DVB-H transmissions. WRC 07 identified the 790-862 MHz band for mobile in Europe, the Middle E... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):15 - 18
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (339 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Digital mammography brought many changes in the development of computer aided detection (CAD) algorithms. Many preprocessing steps on mammograms are made automatically before the detection and diagnosis process begins. One of the very important steps is mammogram registration, which helps in finding asymmetrical regions in left and right breast. Mammogram registration is done by determining some k...

    Efficiency of the video coding process, as well as accuracy of the objective video quality evaluation can be significantly improved by introducing the human visual system (HVS) characteristics. In this paper the usage of the foveation technique in the video quality assessment is analyzed. This technique takes into account non-uniform sampling that corresponds with the acquisition of visual informa... View full abstract»

    Problem of oil spills detection is involvement of dark colors. Dark colors are close to 0 and cannot be detected by image differencing. The paper presents an idea to overcome the detection problem for oil spills. By using DWT, the idea is to remove parts of the signal which represent main structures such as coastlines and increase noise. Wavelet analysis in real time, for oil spills, has been appl...

    This paper presents a novel blob analysis algorithm which significantly improves skin detection effectiveness. In our research we developed an adaptive skin detector which utilizes statistical skin color model updated dynamically based on a face region. Faces are detected in luminance channel based on their geometric properties. Color-based skin detectors classify every pixel separately which resu... View full abstract»

    Most of current algorithms for face recognition involve considerable amount of computations and hence they cannot be used on devices constrained with limited speed and memory. In this paper, we propose a novel solution for efficient face recognition problem for the systems that utilize small memory devices and demand fast performance. The new technique divides the face images into components and f... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (174 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper we propose a class of watermark detectors based on Total Variation (TV). A new image prior that uses a spatially weighted version of TV that captures local image properties is introduced for this problem. The resulting detector is compared to previously reported similar detectors and other state-of-the-art detectors for this problem. The proposed detector compares favorably with them...

    Forest fires are natural phenomena that cause significant economic damage and have quite devastating effect to the environment all over the world. In most cases they are caused by humans, so the human's responsibility is to minimize damage caused by forest fires. Early forest fire detection, both quick and appropriate intervention is of vital importance for forest fire damage minimization. In both... View full abstract»

    The recently proposed signal denoising method based on the relative intersection of confidence intervals (RICI) rule combined with local polynomial approximation is applied to image denoising, with images being transformed to one-dimensional signals. The obtained results, in the terms of peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR), are compared to the results obtained using the approach based on the interse... View full abstract»

  • A combined gradient vector flow and mean shift approach to image segmentation

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):61 - 64
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (253 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Classical gradient vector flow (GVF) based segmentation has been shown to work less well when other significant edges are present adjacent to the real boundary. To counter this, in this paper, we propose an improved energy function by consistently reducing the Euclidean distance between the inspected centroid of the real boundary and the estimated one of the snake. Experimental results show that o... View full abstract»

    TV program material is produced in various formats with diverse image aspect ratios. SDTV image usually has 4:3 aspect ratio, while HDTV image has an aspect ratio of 16:9. To ensure proper display of content on different display devices, there are methods for conversion between different formats. Also, there are methods of transmitting information about aspect ratio to the TV receivers, which allo... View full abstract»
