    In this paper, we present a new decoding algorithm for the Wyner-Ziv (WZ) video coding scheme based on turbo codes. In this scheme, a video frame is encoded using a turbo code, and only a subset of the parity bits are sent to the decoder. At the decoder, the temporal correlation of the video sequence is exploited by using the previous frame as noisy side information (SI) for the current frame. How... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a Wyner-Ziv (WZ) switching scheme for multiple bit-rate (MBR) video streaming over networks. Identical video content is encoded into a set of normal streams, which are generated by conventional hybrid video coding with multiple bit rates, so that streaming can dynamically switch among these normal streams according to available bandwidth. At encoder side, the WZ codec generates... View full abstract»

    Multi-user video streaming over wireless channels is a challenging problem, where the demand for better video quality and small transmission delays needs to be reconciled with the limited and often time-varying communication resources. This paper presents a framework for joint network optimization, source adaptation, and deadline-driven scheduling for multi-user video streaming over wireless netwo... View full abstract»

    Portable video communication devices operate on batteries with limited energy supply. However, video compression is computationally intensive and energy-demanding. Therefore, one of the central challenging issues in portable video communication system design is to minimize the energy consumption of video encoding so as to prolong the operational lifetime of portable video devices. In this work, ba... View full abstract»

    The paper proposes a pixel-based post-processing algorithm to enhance the quality of motion JPEG (MJPEG) by exploiting the temporal redundancies of the decoded frames. The technique permits reconstruction of the high frequency coefficients lost during quantization, thereby reducing ringing artifacts. Based on the linearization of the quantization function, the error between the estimated and origi... View full abstract»

    In the state-of-the-art video coding standard, H.264/AVC, the encoder is allowed to search for its prediction signals among a large number of reference pictures that have been decoded and stored in the decoder to enhance its coding efficiency. Therefore, the computation complexity of the motion estimation (ME) increases linearly with the number of reference picture. Many fast multiple reference fr... View full abstract»

    A novel semi-fuzzy (SF) rate control algorithm (RCA) for variable bit rate (VBR) video applications is proposed. The proposed RCA is optimized to provide high quality compressed video bit streams in a wide operating range from constant quality to nearly constant bit rate. Thanks to a low degree of computational complexity, it is suitable for real-time applications of VBR video. The proposed RCA op... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes an efficient two-description image coding technique. The two side descriptions of an image are generated by quincunx subsampling. The decoding from any side description is done by an interpolation process that exploits sample correlation. Although the quincunx subsampling is a natural choice for the best use of sample correlations in image multiple-description coding (MDC), eac... View full abstract»

    A video containing multiple objects undergoing independent translational and rotational motions is analyzed through a combination of spatial- and frequency-domain representations. The Fourier transform of the sequence is used to estimate the multiple translations and rotations in a computationally efficient manner, which is also robust to local inaccuracies and global illumination changes. A novel... View full abstract»

    Modeling background and segmenting moving objects are significant techniques for video surveillance and other video processing applications. Most existing methods of modeling background and segmenting moving objects mainly operate in the spatial domain at pixel level. In this paper, we present three new algorithms (running average, median, mixture of Gaussians) modeling background directly from co... View full abstract»

    The angular radial transform (ART) is the region-based shape descriptor for MPEG-7. It is a compact descriptor that presents invariance to simple transformations, while presenting very low information redundancy. However, limited effort has been spent on the fast computation of ART, which is of the essence, especially in systems with sparse computational resources. In this paper, we present an eff...

    Discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and embedded block coder (BC) are two main modules in JPEG2000 compression system. Data transfer between the DWT and BC modules presents challenges due to difference in data format generated by the DWT and data format required by the BC module. In this paper, we investigate data transfer and storage techniques between the DWT and BC modules. We propose an efficient... View full abstract»

We propose a preprocessing stage in which eight orientation features are extracted from a macro block by the intensity gradient filters. The orientation features are utilized to select a subset of prediction modes to be involve... View full abstract»

    Installing video cameras in public facilities for surveillance becomes more and more popular. This paper proposes a novel authentication scheme based on chaotic semi-fragile watermarking. The timing information of video frames is modulated into the parameters of a chaotic system. The system output, which is a noise-like signal, is used as a watermark and embedded into the block-based discrete cosi... View full abstract»
