    H.264/AVC significantly outperforms previous video coding standards with many new coding tools. However, the better performance comes at the price of the extraordinarily huge computational complexity and memory access requirement, which makes it difficult to design a hardwired encoder for real-time applications. In addition, due to the complex, sequential, and highly data-dependent characteristics... View full abstract»

    Affective understanding of film plays an important role in sophisticated movie analysis, ranking and indexing. However, due to the seemingly inscrutable nature of emotions and the broad affective gap from low-level features, this problem is seldom addressed. In this paper, we develop a systematic approach grounded upon psychology and cinematography to address several important issues in affective ... View full abstract»

  • Optimum bit allocation and rate control for H.264/AVC

    For the rate control of H. 264/AVC, one of the most important things is to get the statistics of the current frame accurately. To achieve this, a novel adaptive coding characteristics prediction scheme is presented to improve the accuracy of R-D modeling, by exploiting spatio-temporal correlations. With the proposed prediction scheme, we present a novel rate function and a linear distortion model,... View full abstract»

  • Modeling of transmission-loss-induced distortion in decoded video

    This paper analyzes the distortion in decoded video caused by random packet losses in the underlying transmission network. A recursion model is derived that relates the average channel-induced distortion in successive P-frames. The model is applicable to all video encoders using the block-based motion-compensated prediction framework (including the H.261/263/264 and MPEG1/2/4 video coding standard... View full abstract»

  • Rate-distortion analysis and streaming of SP and SI frames

    The new SP and SI picture types, introduced in the latest video coding standard H.264, allow drift-free bitstream switching and can also be used for error-resilience and random access. In this paper, we propose a model for the rate-distortion performance of SP and SI pictures and compare it to experimental results, obtained with our implementation of an SP/SI encoder, made publicly available and r...

  • Geometrical analysis of puppet-theater and cardboard effects in stereoscopic HDTV images

    A fundamental element of stereoscopic image production is to geometrically analyze the conversion from real space to stereoscopic images by binocular parallax under various shooting and viewing conditions. This paper reports on this analysis, particularly on the setting of the optical axes of three-dimensional (3-D) cameras, which has received little attention in the past. First, we identified the...

  • Modified phase-correlation based robust hard-cut detection with application to archive film

    This paper targets hard-cut detection for archive film, i.e., mainly black-and-white videos from the beginning of the last century, which is a particularly difficult task due to heavy visual degradations encountered in the sequences. A robust hard-cut detection system based on modified phase correlation is presented. Phase-correlation-based hard-cut detection is carried out using spatially sub-sam... View full abstract»

  • Biometric hash: high-confidence face recognition

    In this paper, we describe a biometric hash algorithm for robust extraction of bits from face images. While a face-recognition system has high acceptability, its accuracy is low. The problem arises because of insufficient capability of representing features and variations in data. Thus, we use dimensionality reduction to improve the capability to represent features, error correction to improve rob... View full abstract»

  • Multiplierless filter Bank design: structures that improve both hardware and image compression performance

    Design techniques for high-performance, fixed-point, multiplierless filter banks are presented. Image compression using the biorthogonal 9/7 discrete wavelet transform provides a motivating example. Image compression and hardware performance of two commonly used filter structures, direct and cascade, and two known filter bank structures, nonpolyphase and polyphase, are compared. A technique is sho... View full abstract»

  • A hybrid motion-vector coding scheme based on an estimation of the locality for motion-vector difference

    The bit portion for motion-vector (MV) information becomes significant in very-low bitrate video coding as texture coding has been improved. Especially, the existing methods, such as minimum bitrate prediction (MBP)-based coding, do not work well for slow-moving video sequences, which are popular in video conferencing and videophone applications. It is because the characteristics of the video sequ... View full abstract»
