    Automatic initialization and tracking of multiple people and their body parts is one of the first steps in designing interactive multimedia applications. The key problems in this context are robust detection and tracking of people and their body parts in an unconstrained environment. This paper presents an integrated framework to address detection and tracking of multiple objects in a computationa... View full abstract»

    Audio and visual signals arriving from a common source are detected using a signal-level fusion technique. A probabilistic multimodal generation model is introduced and used to derive an information theoretic measure of cross-modal correspondence. Nonparametric statistical density modeling techniques can characterize the mutual information between signals from different domains. By comparing the m... View full abstract»

    This paper examines low power design techniques for discrete cosine transform (DCT) and inverse discrete cosine transform (IDCT) circuits applicable for low bit rate wireless video systems. The techniques include skipping DCT computation of low energy macroblocks, skipping IDCT computation of blocks with all coefficients equal to zero, using lower precision constant multipliers, gating the clock, ...

    Establishing correspondence between features in two images of the same scene taken from different viewing angles is a challenging problem in image processing and computer vision. However, its solution is an important step in many applications like wide baseline stereo, three-dimensional (3-D) model alignment, creation of panoramic views, etc. In this paper, we propose a technique for registration ...

  • An efficient three-step search algorithm for block motion estimation

    The three-step search algorithm has been widely used in block matching motion estimation due to its simplicity and effectiveness. The sparsely distributed checking points pattern in the first step is very suitable for searching large motion. However, for stationary or quasistationary blocks it will easily lead the search to be trapped into a local minimum. In this paper we propose a modification o... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present a connectionist approach to automatic transcription of polyphonic piano music. We first compare the performance of several neural network models on the task of recognizing tones from time-frequency representation of a musical signal. We then propose a new partial tracking technique, based on a combination of an auditory model and adaptive oscillator networks. We show how ... View full abstract»

    As a powerful and expressive nontextual media that can capture and present information, instructional videos are extensively used in e-learning (Web-based distance learning). Since each video may cover many subjects, it is critical for an e-learning environment to have content-based video searching capabilities to meet diverse individual learning needs. In this paper, we present an interactive mul... View full abstract»

    The amount of digital multimedia content available to consumers is growing because of the existence of digital capturing devices such as digital cameras, camcorders and the advent of digital video broadcast. With this increase in content, it becomes important for users to be able to browse and search for content in a timely manner. Descriptions and annotations of the content are needed to enable s...

  • A robust protocol for proving ownership of multimedia content

    We explore the problem of proving ownership or origin of multimedia content like image/video or audio signals through watermarking. The need for watermarking arises out of the insufficiency of present copyright laws for claiming ownership of digital content. Watermarking schemes however, are threatened by counterfeit attacks, which primarily use the freedom available in choice of signature or choi... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes an adaptive slot allocation mechanism to improve the performance of Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) in DOCSIS-based hybrid fiber coaxial (HFC) networks. The proposed mechanism is comprised of two parts: fast request transmission (FRT) and long packet deferment (LPD). FRT is designed to handle one-way TCP transfers, while LDP targets two-way transfers. Here "one-way transfer... View full abstract»

  • A region-based H.263+ codec and its rate control for low VBR video

    This paper presents a region-based video codec, which is compatible with the H.263+ standard, and its associated rate control algorithm for low variable-bit-rate (VBR) video. The proposed region-based coding scheme is a hybrid method that incorporates traditional block DCT coding as well as object-based coding. To achieve this, we adopt H.263+ as the platform, and develop a fast macroblock-based s... View full abstract»

    Steganography has been proposed as a methodology for transmitting messages through innocuous covers to conceal their existence. This work proposes an asymmetric image steganographic method based on a chaotic dynamic system and the Euler theorem. The hidden message can be recovered using orbits different from the embedding orbits, and the original image is not required to extract the hidden message... View full abstract»

  • A low cost algorithm for fast inverse motion compensation in the MPEG-2 standard

    The most advanced of inverse motion compensation (IMC) algorithms exploit shared information in the macroblock level rather than operating on 8×8 blocks, achieving speed-ups of up to 44%. A variable complexity algorithm (VCA) is presented that jointly exploits macroblock shared information and DCT block sparseness, thus resulting in further reductions of up to 6% on the average in the number...
