    A reduced-complexity convolutional formulation is presented for systolic implementation of the discrete cosine transform, where N-point transform can be computed by four numbers of nearly (N/4)-point circular-convolution-like operations. The proposed algorithm not only provides a reduction of computational complexity by four times over the conventional formulation, where N-point transform is compu... View full abstract»

    A major challenge in video encoding and transmission over wireless networks is that the channel is error-prone while the compressed video data is highly sensitive to errors. The transmission errors will cause decoding failure at the receiver side. More importantly, the transmission errors introduced in one video frame will propagate to its subsequent frames along the motion prediction path and sig... View full abstract»

    Although the conventional post-compression rate distortion (PCRD) optimum algorithm in JPEG2000 can provide excellent rate-distortion performance, it remains troublesome for VLSI design. It requires high-complexity computation and a large quantity of working memory. In this paper, a novel rate-control system for JPEG2000 image coding, which consists of three stages, is proposed to efficiently redu... View full abstract»

    In a best-effort networking environment, efficient and fair congestion control is highly desired for every traffic flow to share the bandwidth appropriately. This paper proposes a congestion control algorithm for user datagram protocol rate-based layered streaming of scalable video, e.g., 3-D wavelet based scalable video streaming, which provides a variety of video bit rates. This proposed congest... View full abstract»

    We present an efficient video segmentation strategy based on new edge features to assist object-based video coding, motion estimation, and motion compensation for MPEG-4 and MPEG-7. The proposed algorithm utilizes the human visual perception to provide edge information. Based on the human visual perception, two edge features are introduced and described based on edge features from analysis of a lo... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2341 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We address the problem of pose-invariant face recognition based on a single model image. To cope with novel view face images, a model of the effect of pose changes on face appearance must be available. Face images at an arbitrary pose can be mapped to a reference pose by the model yielding view-invariant representation. Such a model typically relies on dense correspondences of different view face ... View full abstract»

    In this work, we address the problem of tracking faces and facial actions in a single video sequence. The main contributions of the paper are as follows. First, we develop a particle filter based framework for tracking the global 3-D motion of a face using a statistical facial appearance model. Second, we propose a framework for tracking the 3-D face pose as well as the local motion of inner featu... View full abstract»

  • Content-Based Retransmission for 3-D Wavelet Video Streaming Over Lossy Networks

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):1125 - 1133
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (963 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In video streaming, time-varying packet loss rate leads both degradation and inconsistency to video quality. In this paper, we propose a novel content-based retransmission scheme to address the above two problems in 3-D wavelet video streaming. The fundamental idea is to consider the contents of the packets and the traffic of the Internet simultaneously to optimize the quality of service (QoS). In... View full abstract»

    We compare, both objectively and subjectively, the performance of various advanced motion compensation methods, including overlapped block motion compensation (OBMC) and control grid interpolation (CGI), in a 3-D wavelet-based coding system. The motion vectors of the methods are obtained by using a sequence of 1-D dynamic programming algorithms that minimizes the cost function. Our experiment resu... View full abstract»

  • Fast Edge-Preserved Postprocessing for Compressed Images

    Images are often coded using block-based discrete cosine transform (DCT), where blocking and ringing artifacts are the most common visual distortion. In this letter, a fast algorithm is proposed to alleviate the said artifacts in the DCT domain. The new concept is to decompose a row or column image vector to a gradually changed signal and a fast variational signal, which correspond to low-frequenc... View full abstract»

  • An Efficient Motion Vector Composition Scheme for Arbitrary Frame Down-Sampling Video Transcoder

    A new motion vector composition scheme, which we call spatial dominant vector selection (SDVS), for arbitrary down-sampling of precoded video using cascaded pixel domain transcoder is presented. The SDVS uses the existing relationship between pixels of a frame and its reference frame(s) via motion vectors and selects a dominant motion vector from a set of candidate vectors to minimize prediction e...

  • A Three-Level Parallel High-Speed Low-Power Architecture for EBCOT of JPEG 2000

    For JPEG 2000-based multimedia systems, embedded block coding with optimized truncation (EBCOT) tier-1 has become a bottleneck for the entire system. EBCOT tier-1 is full with bit operation, so hardware implementation is more efficient in both system throughput and power consumption. In this paper, a three-level parallel high-speed power-efficient architecture for EBCOT tier-1 is proposed. This ar... View full abstract»

    We present a new algorithm for resizing video frames in the discrete cosine transform (DCT) space. We demonstrate that a frame resizing operation can be represented as multiplication by fixed matrices and propose a computation scheme which is applicable to any DCT-based compression method. The proposed approach is general enough to accommodate resizing operations with arbitrary factors conforming ... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes an area-efficient variable length decoder (VLD) IP core design for MPEG-1/2/4 video coding applications. The proposed IP core exploits the parallel numerical matching in the MPEG-1/2/4 entropy decoding to achieve high data throughput rate in terms of limited hardware cost. This feature not only improves the performance of VLD, but also facilitates reducing the power consumption... View full abstract»
