    In this paper, we propose multiple tree construction schemes and routing protocols for video streaming over wireless ad hoc networks. The basic idea is to split the video into multiple parts and send each part over a different tree, which are constructed to be disjoint with each other so as to increase robustness to loss and other transmission degradations. Specifically, we propose two novel multi... View full abstract»

  • Geometrico-Harmonic Data Broadcasting and Receiving Scheme for Popular Videos

    Among all the data broadcasting schemes, the harmonic scheme has been reported to provide the best performance for user latency; however, it does not always deliver the video data to the users in time. To provide the video data reliably, its two main variants, i.e., cautious and quasi-harmonic schemes have been proposed. These variants require a video to be divided into large number of subsegments... View full abstract»

    A novel mechanism that flexibly adapts data flows and configures computational units is proposed to establish an application-specific data path in the digital signal processor (DSP) that can efficiently perform multistandard video codecs. Based on this mechanism, the proposed application-specific data path, using the very long instruction word (VLIW) architecture with eight computational units of ... View full abstract»

    The browsing of quality videos on small hand-held devices is a common scenario in pervasive media environments. In this paper, we propose a novel framework for video adaptation based on content recomposition. Our objective is to provide effective small size videos which emphasize the important aspects of a scene while faithfully retaining the background context. That is achieved by explicitly sepa...

  • MultiStage: A MINMAX Bit Allocation Algorithm for Video Coders

    Most bit allocation algorithms for video are geared toward optimizing the average frame distortion. However, video sequences optimized this way may exhibit sudden changes in distortion, or "flicker," which can significantly affect the perceived quality of the sequence. An alternative approach is to minimize the maximum frame distortion, which aims to produce a constant-quality sequence, thus avoid... View full abstract»

  • A Novel Rate Control Scheme for Low Delay Video Communication of H.264/AVC Standard

    This paper presents a novel rate control scheme for low delay video communication of H.264/AVC standard. A switched mean-absolute-difference (MAD) prediction scheme is introduced to enhance the traditional temporal MAD prediction model, which is not suitable for predicting abrupt MAD fluctuations. Our new model could reduce the MAD prediction error by up to 69%. Furthermore, an accurate linear rat... View full abstract»

  • Automatic Detection of Prominence Eruption Using Consecutive Solar Images

    Prominences are clouds of relatively cool and dense gas in the solar atmosphere. In this paper, we present a new method to detect and characterize the prominence eruptions. The input is a sequence of consecutive Halpha solar images, and the output is a list of prominence eruption events detected. We extract the limb events and measure their associated properties by applying image processing techni... View full abstract»

  • Modeling Quantization of Affine Motion Vector Coefficients

    Affine motion compensated prediction (AMCP) is an advanced tool which may be incorporated into future video compression standards. There are numerous coders already using AMCP . However the increased number of motion vector components is a disadvantage and quantizing these components can have significant consequences on the difference macro blocks (DMBs). This paper examines the quantization of af... View full abstract»

  • An Image Quality Evaluation Method Based on Digital Watermarking

    As a practical and novel application of watermarking, this paper presents a digital watermarking-based image quality evaluation method that can accurately estimate image quality in terms of the classical objective metrics, such as peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR), weighted PSNR (wPSNR), and Watson just noticeable difference (JND), without the need for the original image. In this method, a waterma... View full abstract»

  • Memory-Efficient Semi-Quasi Renormalization for Arithmetic Coding

    We propose a highly efficient, look-up table-based, renormalization method that can be used by any binary arithmetic encoder with the follow-on procedure. It replaces the time-consuming branching operations in the renormalization process with table look-ups and some simple bit-wise operations. We show that our new renormalization method outperforms the currently used ones with much less memory req... View full abstract»

  • A Fast DV to MPEG-4 Transcoder Integrated With Resolution Conversion and Quantization

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):111 - 119

    We propose a fast transcoder from digital video (DV) to MPEG-4 in the coded domain. Since DV is interlaced sequence whereas MPEG-4 (SIF) is progressive sequence and different discrete cosine transform (DCT) mode (2*4*8DCT) is used in DV, different compressed domain transcoding method from that of MPEG to MPEG conversion is required. We have exploited matrix conversion reflecting these properties a... View full abstract»

    An efficient matrix-based discrete cosine transform splitter/merger for realizing MPEG-2 to AVC/H.264 transform kernel conversion is presented in this paper. Due to its matrix-based nature, the proposed transform kernel converter can be readily implemented by specific multimedia instruction set available today. Both the computational complexity and numerical error behavior of the proposed approach... View full abstract»
