    A new type of implicit bit allocation (IBA) is studied for the combined coarse granular scalability (CGS) and spatial scalability. Given a region which is a quality level at a spatial resolution and an input of weighting factor in the region that is determined by customers' interest, the IBA is formulated as a multiple objective optimization problem. The IBA exhibits a distinguished feature that a... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we study the problem of video transcoding from MPEG-2 to Windows Media Video (WMV) format, together with several desired functionalities such as bit-rate reduction and spatial resolution downscaling. Based on in-depth analysis of error propagation behavior, we propose two architectures (for different typical application scenarios) that are unique in their complexity scalability and ...

  • Cooperative Multitarget Tracking With Efficient Split and Merge Handling

    For applications such as behavior recognition it is important to maintain the identity of multiple targets, while tracking them in the presence of splits and merges, or occlusion of the targets by background obstacles. Here we propose an algorithm to handle multiple splits and merges of objects based on dynamic programming and a new geometric shape matching measure. We then cooperatively combine K...

  • An Enhanced Multiplicative Spread Spectrum Watermarking Scheme

    Watermarks can be embedded into the host contents by multiplicative spread spectrum (MSS) methods. However, the interference from the host contents hinders the successful detection of the embedded watermark. This interference can be compensated at the embedder, or be exploited at the detector to improve the detection rate. In this paper, we first derive the optimum decision rule for watermarking i...

  • Robustness Enhancement for Noncentric Quantization-Based Image Watermarking

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):1507 - 1518
    Cited by:  Papers (4)

    This paper presents a novel approach for improving the robustness of the quantization-based watermarking scheme. Unlike the conventional approach, which quantizes the host value to the center of the objective interval, the proposed scheme offers the flexibility of determining the quantized value. Given tolerable embedding-induced distortion and the host value, the quantized value can be analytical... View full abstract»

  • Interpolation Free Subpixel Accuracy Motion Estimation

    Subpixel motion estimation plays an important role in compression efficiency within modern video codecs such as MPEG2, MPEG4, and H.264. Subpixel motion estimation is implemented within these standards using interpolated values at 1/2 or 1/4 pixel accuracy. Such interpolation gives a good reduction in residual energy for each predicted macroblock and, therefore, improves compression. However, this... View full abstract»

  • Inter-View Direct Mode for Multiview Video Coding

    Global disparity between views is usually caused by the displacement between cameras, which can be accurately represented by a global geometric transformation. In this paper, we first propose an inter-view motion model in terms of the global geometric transformation to represent the motion correlation between two adjacent views. Specifically, the motion vector of a pixel in one view may be directl... View full abstract»

  • Real-Time Bayesian 3-D Pose Tracking

    In this paper, we propose a novel approach for real-time 3-D tracking of object pose from a single camera. We formulate the 3-D pose tracking task in a Bayesian framework which fuses feature correspondence information from both previous frame and some selected key-frames into the posterior distribution of pose. We also developed an inter-frame motion inference algorithm which can get reliable inte... View full abstract»

  • A Novel 3-D Predict Hexagon Search Algorithm for Fast Block Motion Estimation on H.264 Video Coding

    In the upcoming video coding standard MPEG-4 AVC/JVT/H.264, motion estimation is allowed to use multiple references and multiple block sizes to improve the rate-distortion performance. However, full exhaustive search of all block sizes is computational intensive with complexity increasing linearly to the number of allowed reference frames and block sizes. In block motion estimation, a search patte... View full abstract»

  • Reliable Video Transmission Using Codes Close to the Channel Capacity

    Long Reed-Solomon codes over the prime field GF(216+1) are proposed as a low overhead channel code for reliable transmission of video over noisy and lossy channels. The added redundancy is near optimal from the information theoretic point of view contrary to the conventionally used intra-coding and sync (marker) insertion in video transmission that are not justified theoretically. Compa... View full abstract»

  • Fast Coding Mode Selection With Rate-Distortion Optimization for MPEG-4 Part-10 AVC/H.264

    The MPEG-4 Part-10 AVC/H.264 standard employs several powerful coding methods to obtain high compression efficiency. To reduce the temporal and spatial redundancy more effectively, motion compensation uses variable block sizes, and directional intra prediction investigates all available coding modes to decide the best one. When the rate-distortion (R-D) optimization technique is used, an encoder f... View full abstract»
