    Recent advances in multicast video streaming algorithms have opened up new ways to provision video-on-demand services to potentially millions of users. However, the spectacular efficiency of multicast streaming algorithms can only be realized by restricting or even prohibiting interactive playback control. Experiments reveal that the performance of current state-of-the-art multicast streaming algo... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a method for reducing the power consumption in a pipeline of streaming data is presented. The pipeline is divided into multiple stages and buffer memories are inserted between adjacent stages. By dynamically changing the power state of each stage, the overall power consumption of the pipeline, including the power consumed by each stage and by each buffer, can be reduced. For example...

    In this paper, we address the key problem in real-time video coding, the rate-distortion (R-D) tradeoff. As most video coding applications employ color images, we analyze the R-D modeling problem of the color image sequence. We investigate that the R-D characteristics of color video signal in traditional transform-based video coding systems should be modeled for the luminance and chrominance compo... View full abstract»

    This paper conducts a formal study of the shot boundary detection problem. First, a general formal framework of shot boundary detection techniques is proposed. Three critical techniques, i.e., the representation of visual content, the construction of continuity signal and the classification of continuity values, are identified and formulated in the perspective of pattern recognition. Meanwhile, th... View full abstract»

  • Video Denoising Based on Inter-frame Statistical Modeling of Wavelet Coefficients

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):187 - 198
    Cited by:  Papers (51)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (7824 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The paper proposes a joint probability density function to model the video wavelet coefficients of any two neighboring frames and then applies this statistical model for denoising. The parameter of the density function that measures the correlation between the wavelet coefficients of the two frames is used as an index for the motion. The joint density function is employed for spatial filtering of ... View full abstract»

    The object of this paper is to present a simple and efficient algorithm for dynamic range compression and contrast enhancement of digital images under the noisy environment in the compressed domain. First, an image is separated into illumination and reflectance components. Next, the illumination component is manipulated adaptively for image dynamics by using a new content measure. Then, the reflec... View full abstract»

  • On the Design of Perceptual MPEG-Video Encryption Algorithms

    In this paper, some existing perceptual encryption algorithms of MPEG videos are reviewed and some problems, especially security defects of two recently proposed MPEG-video perceptual encryption schemes, are pointed out. Then, a simpler and more effective design is suggested, which selectively encrypts fixed-length codewords in MPEG-video bit streams under the control of three perceptibility facto...

  • A New Soft Variable Length Decoder for Wireless Video Transmission

    In this paper, we propose an adaptive and scalable soft variable length code (VLC) decoder to greatly reduce overall design complexity. Generally, a soft VLC decoder needs to maintain many states for the correct decoding when the sequence length or table size grows. We propose an adaptive sorting scheme to reduce the memory accesses and design complexity. We reduce the table size by using symbol-m... View full abstract»

    This paper presents an innovative algorithm for detecting all-zero discrete cosine transform (DCT) coefficient blocks prior to DCT and quantization for all block-based video coding standards. A mathematic model is established based on analyzing DCT coefficient distribution and applying Paseval energy conservation theorem. The algorithm is applied to H.264 video coding and experimental results show... View full abstract»

  • Single Reference Frame Multiple Current Macroblocks Scheme for Multiple Reference Frame Motion Estimation in H.264/AVC

    Due to the multiple reference frame motion estimation (MRF-ME), an H.264/AVC encoder requires ultrahigh memory bandwidth. Conventional multiple reference frames single current macroblock (MRSC) scheme only considers the data reuse within one frame, and requires on-chip memory size and off-chip memory bandwidth in proportional to the reference frame number. In this paper, a single reference frame m... View full abstract»

    In video transcoding, arbitrary resizing is always desired for end users with different display capabilities. In this paper, a two-stage resizing structure is proposed for arbitrary resizing. It gives a general solution for the realization of arbitrary resizing in the transform domain. Two constraints are given for the selection of parameter set to benefit the anti-aliasing and picture quality. Il... View full abstract»
