    Peer-to-Peer systems are nowadays a very popular solution for multimedia distribution, as they provide significant cost benefits compared with traditional server-client distribution. Additionally, the distribution of scalable content enables the consumption of the content in a quality suited for the available bandwidth and the capabilities of the end-user devices. Thus, the distribution of scalabl... View full abstract»

    Fast mode decision for H.264/AVC encoding has been extensively studied in the literature. However, most of the existing algorithms are designed for generic video taken under stable lighting conditions. In this paper, we focus on H.264/AVC encoding of tunnel traffic surveillance video. In such an application, the fast moving vehicles and the reflections of different lighting sources pose some parti... View full abstract»

    Image segmentation is a very important process for multimedia applications. Multimedia databases use segmentation for the storage and indexing of images. This paper presents a way to segment images by applying both a clustering method and watershed transformation. It is well known that the major drawback of the watershed transformation method is the oversegmentation phenomenon it produces. For thi... View full abstract»

    The Scalable Video Coding (SVC) extension of the H.264/AVC (AVC) video coding standard features spatial, quality and temporal scalability. Backwards compatibility with legacy decoding devices is maintained through an H.264/AVC compliant base layer, which represents the lowest quality of an SVC bit-stream. However, it is often desirable to also provide the higher quality layers to legacy H.264/AVC ... View full abstract»

    In order to enable users to query documents according their individual preferences, we propose a new user interaction model that forms an extension of the well-known relevance feedback approach. The introduced approach is utilizing partially ordered sets to express quality relations between result documents, i.e. the user's preference, directly on sample documents from the document set. Hence, the... View full abstract»
