    This paper presents a real-time high-definition 720p@30fps H.264/MPEG-4 AVC intra-frame codec IP suitable for digital video and digital still camera applications. The whole design is optimized in both the algorithm and architecture levels. In the algorithm level, we propose to remove the area-costly plane mode, and enhance the cost function to reduce hardware cost and to increase the processing sp... View full abstract»

    A variety of error resilience and scalable coding techniques have recently been proposed to facilitate the delivery of video over best-effort networks; a common drawback of these techniques is reduced compression efficiency. Also, MPEG-7 descriptors have recently been developed for the purpose of indexing. In this paper, we propose to employ MPEG-7 descriptors to improve the quality of the video d... View full abstract»

    A rate control technique for video encoding under complex transmission scenarios is presented. A typical application for this method is the transmission of video over variable bit rate channels while accounting for restrictions on the end-to-end delay and decoder buffer size. That the resulting multiple constraints on the source and channel rates may be relaxed without loss of optimality into a se... View full abstract»

  • Enhanced error concealment with mode selection

    Delay sensitive video transmission over error prone networks can suffer from packet erasures when channel conditions are not favorable. Use of error concealment (EC) at the video decoder is necessary in such cases to prevent error induced artefacts making the affected video frames visibly intolerable. This paper proposes an EC method that incorporates enhanced temporal and spatial concealment elem... View full abstract»

  • Geometric-Based Error Concealment for Concealing Transmission Errors and Improving Visual Quality

    Block-based video coding algorithms such as the JPEG and MPEG are widely used in video communication systems over lossy channels. However, because current video communication channels do not guarantee visual quality of service during video transmission, random bit errors or erasure errors in the transmission data often occur, resulting in error blocks. Therefore, an efficient error concealment tec... View full abstract»

  • Video Error Concealment by Integrating Greedy Suboptimization and Kalman Filtering Techniques

    This paper addresses video error concealment techniques, focusing on motion vector recovery of P- and B-frames, to improve the decoded quality of videos when bit stream data incurs transmission errors. First, we propose a dynamic programming (DP) technique to optimize the path cost in a multistage topology and evaluate the goodness of boundary matching and side smoothness of recovered macroblocks....

  • Wavelet-Domain Video Denoising Based on Reliability Measures

    This paper proposes a novel video denoising method based on nondecimated wavelet band filtering. In the proposed method, motion estimation and adaptive recursive temporal filtering are performed in a closed loop, followed by an intra-frame spatially adaptive filter. All processing occurs in the wavelet domain. The paper introduces new wavelet-based motion reliability measures. We make a difference... View full abstract»

  • Counting Pedestrians in Video Sequences Using Trajectory Clustering

    In this paper, we propose the use of lustering methods for automatic counting of pedestrians in video sequences. As input, we consider the output of those detection/tracking systems that overestimate the number of targets. Clustering techniques are applied to the resulting trajectories in order to reduce the bias between the number of tracks and the real number of targets. The main hypothesis is t...

  • Fast Variable Block Size Motion Estimation by Adaptive Early Termination

    This paper presents a fast motion estimation algorithm by adaptively changing the early termination threshold for the current accumulated partial sum of absolute difference (SAD) value. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can provide the similar quality while saving 77.9% and 50.6% of SAD computation when comparing with early termination methods in MPEG-4 VM18.0 and H.264 JM9.0...

  • Enhanced Intra-4 ,\times, 4 Mode Decision for H.264/AVC Coders

    In this paper, we propose an enhanced rate-distortion cost function, which combines the sum of absolute integer-transformed differences (SAITD) and a rate predictor for H.264/AVC intra-4times4 mode decision. To reduce the computation of the SAITD, we further develop a fast computation algorithm, which successfully uses the property of linear transform and the fixed spatial relationship of predicte...
