    Matching pursuit (MP) is a greedy algorithm that decomposes a signal into a linear combination of bases within an over-complete dictionary. The MP algorithm is usually only approximated due to its massive computational complexity. By approximating a residual in a subspace, we propose a multiple blocks MP update algorithm for video coding that achieves a faster and better MP approximation than trad... View full abstract»

    In recent years, a number of sophisticated architectures have been proposed to provide video-on-demand (VoD) service using multicast transmissions. Compared to their unicast counterparts, these multicast VoD systems are highly scalable and can potentially serve millions of concurrent users. Nevertheless, these systems are designed for streaming constant-bit rate (CBR) encoded videos and thus canno... View full abstract»

    A novel reversible data hiding algorithm, which can recover the original image without any distortion from the marked image after the hidden data have been extracted, is presented in this paper. This algorithm utilizes the zero or the minimum points of the histogram of an image and slightly modifies the pixel grayscale values to embed data into the image. It can embed more data than many of the ex... View full abstract»

    Decision feedback equalizer-aided wide-band burst-by-burst adaptive trellis-coded modulation, turbo trellis-coded modulation (TTCM), and bit-interleaved-coded modulation-assisted H.263-based video transceivers are proposed and characterized in performance terms when communicating over the COST 207 typical urban wide-band fading channel. Specifically, four different modulation modes, namely 4QAM, 8... View full abstract»

  • Efficient block-matching motion estimation based on Integral frame attributes

    Block-based motion estimation is widely used in video compression for exploiting video temporal redundancy. Although effective, the process is arguably the most computationally intensive part of a typical video encoder. To speed up the process, a large number of fast block-matching algorithms (BMAs) have been proposed for motion estimation by limiting the number of search locations or simplifying ...

    This paper describes a new technique for reducing the blockiness that results from using the reduced-resolution update (RRU) video coding tool. In RRU coding, full resolution prediction error residuals are downsampled and coded at a reduced spatial resolution. In previous versions of RRU, such as that defined in Annex Q of the H.263 standard, each block of prediction errors is processed without us... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a hybrid motion-based video retrieval system to retrieve desired videos from video databases through trajectory matching. The hybrid method includes a sketch-based scheme and a string-based one to analyze and index a trajectory with more syntactic meanings. First of all, this method uses a sampling technique to extract a set of control points from each trajectory as features. T... View full abstract»

    For the last few years, video indexing and video compression have been considered as two separate functionalities. However, multimedia content is growing at such a rate that multimedia services will need to consider both the compression and the indexing aspects of the content in order to efficiently manage this audio-video content. Therefore, it is interesting to study the synergy between the repr... View full abstract»

    Motion estimation (ME) is a multistep process that involves not one, but a combination of techniques, such as motion starting point, motion search patterns, and adaptive control to curb the search, avoidance of search stationary regions, etc. The collective efficiency of these techniques is what makes a ME algorithm robust and efficient across the board. This paper proposes a ME algorithm that is ... View full abstract»

    The performance of various wavelets, including those known to be well suited for the coding of still images, has been evaluated for the multiresolution motion estimation of video sequences. The multiresolution motion estimation scheme proposed by Zhang and Zafar, which has been widely cited in the literature, is used as the simulation scheme in this study. In our study, the prediction mean square ... View full abstract»

    Multiple reference frame motion compensation is a new feature introduced in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC to improve video coding performance. However, the computational cost of multiple reference frame motion estimation (MRF-ME) is very high. In this paper, we propose an algorithm that takes into account the correlation/continuity of motion vectors among different reference frames. We show that the algorithm ... View full abstract»
