    Affine motion compensation is combined with long-term memory motion-compensated prediction. The idea is to determine several affine motion parameter sets on subareas of the image. Then, for each affine motion parameter set, a complete reference picture is warped and inserted into the multipicture buffer. Given the multipicture buffer of decoded pictures and affine warped versions thereof, block-ba... View full abstract»

    In video encoding, block motion estimation represents a CPU-intensive task. For this reason, many fast algorithms have been developed to improve searching and matching phases. A milestone within the lossless approach is partial distortion elimination (PDE/SpiralPDE) in which distortion is the difference between the block to be coded and the candidate prediction block. In this paper, (i) we analyze... View full abstract»

  • A monotonic-decreasing rate scheduler for variable-bit-rate video streaming

    Variable-bit-rate (VBR) encoded videos can provide a more consistent visual quality than constant-bit-rate (CBR) encoded videos. However, the long-range bit-rate variations in VBR videos make it difficult to efficiently provide quality-of-service control in a video-on-demand system. Existing scheduling algorithms such as Optimal Smoothing, which requires both downward and upward bandwidth realloca... View full abstract»

  • Global motion estimation from coarsely sampled motion vector field and the applications

    Global motion estimation is a powerful tool widely used in video processing and compression as well as in computer vision areas. We propose a new approach for estimating global motions from coarsely sampled motion vector fields. The proposed method minimizes the fitting error between the input motion vectors and the motion vectors generated from the estimated motion model using the Newton-Raphson ... View full abstract»

  • A comprehensive method for multilingual video text detection, localization, and extraction

    Text in video is a very compact and accurate clue for video indexing and summarization. Most video text detection and extraction methods hold assumptions on text color, background contrast, and font style. Moreover, few methods can handle multilingual text well since different languages may have quite different appearances. This paper performs a detailed analysis of multilingual text characteristi...

    This work presents a joint source and channel coding method for transmission of progressively compressed three-dimensional (3-D) models where the bit budget is allocated optimally. The proposed system uses the Compressed Progressive Mesh (CPM) algorithm to produce a hierarchical bitstream representing different levels of detail (LODs). In addition to optimizing the transmitted bitstream with respe... View full abstract»

    Estimating the three-dimensional (3-D) information of an object from a sequence of projections is of paramount importance in diverse domains such as autonomous navigation, robot vision, object recognition, world modeling, and human-computer interaction. We present geometric optimization-based algorithms for simultaneous 3-D shape (depth) and motion (linear and angular velocities) recovery that min... View full abstract»

  • A multisymbol context-based arithmetic coding architecture for MPEG-4 shape coding

    MPEG-4 shape coding comprises context-based arithmetic encoding (CAE) as its centerpiece. Since the CAE algorithm has a complicated coding procedure and strong data dependency, it is hard to exploit its pipeline and parallel facilities. Furthermore, to encode multiple symbols within one clock cycle, it needs to overcome the issues of extracting multiple contexts of these symbols, deriving multiple... View full abstract»

  • Video summarization and scene detection by graph modeling

    We propose a unified approach for video summarization based on the analysis of video structures and video highlights. Two major components in our approach are scene modeling and highlight detection. Scene modeling is achieved by normalized cut algorithm and temporal graph analysis, while highlight detection is accomplished by motion attention modeling. In our proposed approach, a video is represen... View full abstract»

  • Scalable video coding by stream morphing

    In many scenarios where it is desirable to provide a number of different descriptions of a video sequence, the simulcasting of single-layer bitstreams is impractical due to the amount of data involved. The new technique "stream morphing" introduced in this paper exploits the redundancy that exists between different compressed descriptions of the same video sequence at different quality levels. Thi... View full abstract»
