    This paper presents a method to reduce the computation and memory access for variable block size motion estimation (ME) using pixel truncation. Previous work has focused on implementing pixel truncation using a fixed-block-size (16 times 16 pixels) ME. However, pixel truncation fails to give satisfactory results for smaller block partitions. In this paper, we analyze the effect of truncating pixel... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a full-hardware context-based adaptive binary arithmetic coder (CABAC) encoder, which is the entropy coding tool adopted in the main and higher profiles of the video coding standard H.264/AVC. All CABAC coding features are implemented in hardware (HW), and different coding modes including rate-distortion optimization (RDO) are fully supported. An efficient memory access s...

    This paper proposes an improved rate control algorithm for jointly encoding multiple arbitrarily shaped video objects in the context of low-delay MPEG-4 compliant video coding. The algorithm provides adequate mechanisms for dealing with deviations between the ideal and the actual behavior of video scene encoders, notably: 1) compensation mechanisms (e.g., rate control decisions) that are able to t...

    This paper proposes a spatio-temporal auto regressive (STAR) model for frame rate upconversion. In the STAR model, each pixel in the interpolated frame is approximated as the weighted combination of a sample space including the pixels within its two temporal neighborhoods from the previous and following original frames as well as the available interpolated pixels within its spatial neighborhood in...

    In this paper, we investigate a fine-grain adaptive forward error correction (FGA-FEC) coding scheme for scalable video bitstreams. In our work, both the embedded source bitstream and the error-control codes are granularly adapted at block level in intermediate overlay nodes to satisfy heterogeneous users with both different video frame-rate/spatial resolution/quality preferences and different net...

    We address the problem of joint optimal rate allocation and scheduling between media source rate and error protection rate in scalable streaming applications over lossy multipath networks. Starting from a distortion representation of the received media information at the client, we propose a novel optimization framework in which we analyze the performance of the most relevant forward error correct...

    Wyner-Ziv (WZ) video coding is a particular case of distributed video coding, which is a recent video coding paradigm based on the Slepian-Wolf and WZ theorems. Contrary to available prediction-based standard video codecs, WZ video coding exploits the source statistics at the decoder, allowing the development of simpler encoders. Until now, WZ video coding did not reach the compression efficiency ... View full abstract»

  • Reconstructing Videos From Multiple Compressed Copies

    A single source video may be compressed using different encoders with different settings. In the context of online video sharing, many such video copies exist, and an end user may have access to a few of them and would like to reconstruct a video sequence with quality superior to all available copies. In this paper, we propose a scheme to improve the video quality by projecting the reconstructed v... View full abstract»

    An increasing number of networked and battery-powered devices require the simultaneous processing of multiple high-complexity dynamic multimedia tasks. Existing resource allocation solutions include both centralized approaches and distributed approaches. Centralized approaches typically have two fundamental limitations. First, multimedia algorithms typically have a large number of operating points... View full abstract»

    A novel probabilistic tracking system is presented, which includes a sequential particle sampler and a fragment-based measurement model. Rather than generating particles independently in a generic particle filter, the correlation between particles is used to improve sampling efficiency, especially when the target moves in an unexpected and abrupt fashion. We propose to update the proposal distribu... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a video fingerprinting method based on a novel binary fingerprint obtained using a feature selection algorithm called the symmetric pairwise boosting (SPB). The binary fingerprints are obtained by filtering and quantizing perceptually significant features extracted from an input video clip. The SPB algorithm, which is a generalization of the conventional asymmetric pairwise boo... View full abstract»

    A video region-of-interest (ROI) scalable coding scheme can ensure the priority of ROI. Error protection schemes can be used to guarantee the correct receipt of the ROI stream when transporting ROI scalable video over an error-prone network. However, we find that the correct receipt of ROI bitstreams cannot ensure the correct decoding of ROI due to the unique issue of the cross error propagation b... View full abstract»

  • High-Throughput H.264/AVC High-Profile CABAC Decoder for HDTV Applications

    In this letter we propose a high-throughput VLSI architecture design for H.264 high-profile context-based adaptive binary arithmatic coding (HP CABAC) decoding for HDTV applications. To speed up the inherent sequential CABAC decoding, we eliminate the bottleneck by proposing a look-ahead decision parsing technique on the grouped context table with cache registers, which reduces 62% of cycle count ...

    In multiview video, a number of cameras capture the same scene from different viewpoints. There can be significant variations in the color of views captured with different cameras, which negatively affects performance when the videos are compressed with inter-view prediction. In this letter, a method is proposed for correcting the color of multiview video sets as a preprocessing step to compressio... View full abstract»
